Dead Sea: Is it really dead?

Located in the Jordan Valley, the Dead Sea is the lowest point on Earth (about 400 meters below sea level). While it is famous throughout the world for its various products (salt, curative and beauty products), the Dead Sea also attracts tourists for various leisure activities because it is impossible for one to sink in this sea, which is nine times saltier than the Mediterranean Sea (and because of this, fish that enter the Dead Sea through the Jordan River quickly die). However, the popularity of the sea is not something that has become popular with modern advertising. Over 2000 years ago, during the days of Herod, the sea was famous for its curative powers and has only become more famous as time goes by. Usually calm, the sea is the perfect location for tourists to relax.
