Euro Truck Simulator 2: Road to the Black Sea is a map DLC for Euro Truck Simulator 2. It is the sixth DLC including map expansions. It was released on December 5, 2019.

The expansion will feature the countries of Bulgaria, Romania and the European part of Turkey (Thrace). It will open the eastern border of Hungary as well, further completing it.

It is the second map expansion that adds 3 countries (after Scandinavia), the third that expands the map eastwards (after Going East and Beyond the Baltic Sea), the second that features "Sea" in the expansion name & the second that features a transcontinental country (in both after B. Baltic Sea).
