“The shallow-water bay Kenderli, my heart breaks when I see how the sea moves away from the shore…The water moved away from the sandy shore at least 50 meters,” wrote Sarsenbayev below the post.

The Caspian Sea is actually a lake, but called the sea because of its impressive size (its coastline is 5,970 kilometers). It covers the territory of  Kazakhstan to the northeast, Russia to the northwest, Azerbaijan to the southwest, Iran to the south, and Turkmenistan to the southeast.
