Location of Mariupol

Coordinates of the city: 47 ° 07′50 '' with. sh. 37 ° 33′50 '' d.
Not far from Mariupol there are such large cities as Berdyansk, Taganrog, Donetsk.
The local lands are quite fertile, as they are rich in black soil and irrigated by groundwater. But therein lies the danger of the local territories. Since this same combination of conditions can lead to landslides.
Local favorable conditions of the sea and warm climate created in the territory of Mariupol a whole recreational zone, thanks to which Mariupol became one of the famous resorts of Ukraine. But at the same time there are serious environmental problems due to the large number of industrial enterprises. So, it is hardly possible to judge the benefits or harm of local environmental conditions.
