There is nothing left from the sea to make us feel proud or to have the national pride. As you can see the beach is so dirty and the water is really polluted. All the ports are close because we don’t have a good relationship with the other countries around Caspian Sea. Each country believe that they own the sea and there is no tolerance in within, the beach doesn’t have any facilities. We don’t feel proud of Caspian sea but at the end we like it. -How often do you come to the beach? Every month.
