Zonguldak is a wilderness in the Western Black Sea Region, the coast to the Black Sea from west and north. It occupies the bottom of Turkey's land with an area of 3.309 km². The provincial lands starting from the Black Sea coast are surrounded by Black Sea in the north, Bartın in the North, Bartolu in the east, Bolu in the south, and Düzce in the west. Many natural beaches (coves) and sandy beaches, which are located in the 80 km coastal band extending from Sazköy in the east to the Alaplı district in the west, are the main places where local people spend their day in summer.
The province of Zonguldak is under the influence of temperate Black Sea climate. There is no dry season in Zonguldak, which is rainy and warm in all seasons. Most rainfall is seen in autumn and winter seasons.
Zonguldak shows an economic structure led by natural resources located on the coast. It is one of the few mountains where non-agricultural sectors gain weight. The city is the most important source of income coal. The stone carp was considered to have been found by Uzun Mehmet in 1829, in the village of Kestaneci in Eregli, Zonguldak. Between 1830 and 1848, exploration works were carried out and later coal operation was started. Coal management is currently being carried out by Turkish Hard Coal Institution.
