CROATIA VS. SYRIA- COASTLINE
On 21st of November in the framework of Project #INTEGRA - Integration of Third-country Nationals Through Urban Partnerships, Center for Peace, nonviolence and human rights published an infographic as part of its online campaign.
The infographic is about the coastlines of both countries.
As Centre for peace already stated in their previous infographics Syria is located in Western Asia, north of the Arabian Peninsula, at the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea. It is bordered by Turkey to the north, Lebanon and Israel to the west and southwest, Iraq to the east, and Jordan to the south.
Syria has a narrow coastal plain which runs along the Mediterranean Sea from north to south. North of Tartus, the mountains plunge directly into the sea. Syria´s coast line is around 185 km long.
Croatia is a country located in the northwestern part of the Balkan Peninsula. It is a small yet highly geographically diverse crescent-shaped country.
Croatia can be classified as a Pannonian-Adriatic country due to its south-eastern European and Mediterranean position. The Croatian coast is located between the Dinaric Alps to the east and the Adriatic Sea to the west and has 1,800 km of coastline. One of the striking characteristics of the Croatian coast is that it has a total of 1,244 islands, islets, rocks and reefs.
