WHERE IN BULGARIA ARE YOU? © Anthony Georgieff

Until the early 1990s this was a no-go border zone. Isolated for over 40 years from the Bulgarian hinterland, the area developed its own ecosystem unseen anywhere else on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast.

They soon discovered that they had found one of the prettiest locations in the country: pristine beaches, slow rivers, oak forests untouched by man.

Those first visitors were quick to tell their pals, who told their pals… the Big Bang came in the 2000s when, like elsewhere on the coast, construction started in a rather unregulated and ugly fashion. Now what used to be a small backwater of a village is a booming resort, but still nothing like Sozopol or Sunny Beach.
