Greece, Turkey, Romania and Bulgaria - November 5th, 2010

This image focuses on the countries by the Aegean Sea (below) and the southwestern Black Sea (upper right). Many islands, belonging to Greece and Turkey, are visible in the Aegean, while few can be seen in the Black Sea.

Greece is visible in the lower left quadrant, with Bulgaria north of Greece at the center left, Romania north of Bulgaria at the upper left, and Turkey to the right.

The large, C-shaped ridge of mountains running through Romania and Bulgaria is actually composed of two ranges: the Carpathians (to the north, in Romania) and the Balkans (to the south, in Bulgaria).
