Cape Kaliakra, Dobrich Province

(4.7/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Watch dolphins, cormorants, and pinnipeds from the steep coast of Cape Kaliakra, where vertical cliffs reach 70 m (230 ft) down to the sea. This nature preserve features the remnants of fortified walls, a water main, baths, and a residence of the despot Dobrotitsa. At the entrance to the cape, see an obelisk called the Gate of the 40 Maidens. According to legend, the maidens tied their hair together and jumped into the sea to escape the Ottoman hordes. You can see the fortress that allegedly guarded the treasuries of Lyzimah, the successor to Alexander the Great. An archaeological park called Bulgarian Troy is on the big island in the nearby lake.

  • Very quaint fastening on a cliff. Was / is also used as a military base. A small museum exhibits excavations. Everyday objects from the Hellenistic period of the Romans to the Ottomans everything is. Unfortunately, very nice restaurant with breathtaking views of the Bay had still not opened. There were toilets only when the parking lots. Small kiosks selling souvenirs, local art, and Asian imports. In any case, it's worth a visit

  • Really enjoyed visiting the natural park. Rode alone on the rented car during the month of May. The people were a bit, so the crowd is not cuddly. During the season, think of the fun of visiting one of the main attractions of the North coast of Bulgaria, don't get it. If possible, travel on their own, choosing the correct time and date. It is possible to come with dogs.

  • Ruins and excavations, there are 1400-1500 years old. Remember to take a few bottles of water with the go-ride. Are you a nature walk, then it is a good destination.
