MAJOR LOCATIONS IN BULGARIA

AHTOPOL

BOURGAS

The small town Ahtopol is situated 87 kilometers south of Bourgas. The beautiful mouth of Veleka River is just 4 kilometers away of the resort. It has two long and picturesque beaches. The water tends to be warmer (around 25 C) and more placid and the off-the-beaten-path beaches allow the opportunity for nude bathing.

HISTORY

The town occupies the place of a Thracian settlement. It was probably colonized in the 6th century BC. The Romans called it Peronticus while the Byzantine leader Agaton reconstructed the town after barbarian invasions and gave it his own name, Agatopolis. The town frequently changed hands between the Byzantine Empire and the Bulgarian state. With the arrival of the Ottoman troops at the end of the 14th century, it was called Ahtenbolu. It was burnt down and devastated by sea pirates many times with the most recent fire being in 1918 when the town was completely destroyed. Remains of the town's fortress and a fountain with a carved horseman are the only traces left from old times.

SURROUNDING AREA

Four kilometers south of Ahtopol is the magnificent mouth of Veleka River. Close to it is the small village Kosti famous for Nestinarski dances.

Varvara village is 3 kilometers north of the site. It is a favorite place for divers, because of the stone underwater cavities and reefs, formed by shells and other water species.
Tourists who want to experience unforgettable adventure holiday in a desolated site among virgin nature will be more than satisfied here.

South to the border holidaymakers can enjoy the beautiful beaches of Sinemorets, Silistar and Rezovo.

TRANSPORT

There is regular bus and minibus transport to Bourgas (passing through most of the towns and villages in the southern part of the coast) and Sinemoretz and Rezovo to the south.
