Urmia Lake is the largest inland lake in Iran and has salt water. The two east and west sides of the lake are connected by a bridge and a road that passes through the lake. Shallow Lake Urmia has several islands.
For a long time, the phenomenon of drought along with mismanagement of water resources has led to the drying up and dehydration of large parts of Lake Urmia. The views from the wrecked docks and the ships and boats left on land are evidence of this deplorable environmental situation. These landscapes have been created by the decline and regression of the lake water.
