The name Caspian Sea is due to the Caspian. It is the name of an ancient city developed on the west side of the lake. It has quite abundant plants and animals and is rich in sturgeon and seals. Unfortunately, this is a sea with many disputes between the countries because it also has mineral resources like oil and natural gas and is subject to constant problems. Fishing and international water problems also arise, as it is not known whose management is responsible from a particular place.

The northern part of the lake freezes during the colder months and is used to make some ski runs. It can be said that salty snow is not very common on any mountain.
