The length of the coastal city boundaries is 158 km, the overland border - 106 km. The location of the central part of city, with its mountainous relief, broken by deep ravines and beams, with plenty of deep sea-water bays, is a good naturally protected navigable waterway and transport approach. In other parts of the city territory the mountaineous terrain prevails, with some fertile valleys and occasional flat areas.
