CLIMATE The climate of the Karabük Province is partially Black Sea climate but as is located inland, away from the sea the province can not make use of the moisture air of the Black Sea and therefore is mostly under the effect of terrestrial climate.

VEGETATION COVER % 60 of the province is covered with forests. Dense forests can be seen in Safranbolu, Yenice and Eskipazar. As the terrestrial climate is dominant around Eflani, Ovacık and Eskipazar, the steppes can often be seen. These areas mentioned above are covered with forests, but the regions over the tree-growing altitude have got long grass lands.
RIVERS AND LAKES The most important river of the province is Filyos River. Filyos River takes different names from the point it comes out to the sea where it flows into. It is known as ‘Ulusu’ where it comes out, ‘Gerede Water’ while passing near Gerede, ‘So ğ anlı Stream’ near Eskipazar and ‘Yenice River’ when it mixes with ‘Araç Stream’. Filyos River, which also takes ‘Devrek Stream’ into its body, flows into the Black Sea. It is 288 km. long. There are no big, natural lakes in Karabük.
