Gulf of Riga

Gulf of Riga



 The maximum depth of the Gulf of Riga is 67 m. The island of Saaremaa (Estonia) partially separates it from the rest of the Baltic Sea. The main exit out of the gulf is the Irbe Strait. Ruhnu island, in the middle of the gulf, also belongs to Estonia. Notable cities in this gulf include Riga, Pärnu, Jūrmala and Kuressaare.
Le Golfe de Riga est profond de 67m au maximum.  Sa géographie particulière qui ne permet pas un grand brassage de l’eau, amène à un taux de pollution plus élevé que dans la mer Baltique.
