Sunrise over Cape Kaliakra and its legends
Bulgaria and the sea - ancient history, legends and beauty.


Cape Кaliakra is one of the most beautiful and magnetic places in Bulgaria. Here the natural beauty, antiquity, history and legends have stopped the time over the Black Sea waves. Kaliakra is a long and narrow cape on the Bulgarian northern Black Sea coast. The nose is taken 2 km into the sea and resembles a peninsula, and its steep cliffs descend 70 meters down to the sea. It is a natural and archaeological reserve. Many rare animal species live in the area. Dolphins can often be seen here. Many legends have been told about Kaliakra since ancient times. The most famous legend is about the 40 Bulgarian girls who tie their hair for each other and throw themselves into the sea so that they do not fall into the hands of their pursuers. One of them was Kaliakra, on which the nose was named. Now at the beginning of cape Kaliakra there is a obelisk called "The 40th Virgin Gate" in their memory.
