A nice little village situated in a sheltered bay, Kranevo is 25 km north of the city of Varna. It lies just beyond the northern end of Golden Sands and at the southern part of a long beach, which extends towards the luxurious resort of Albena to the north. The vast beach, clean sea, gently sloping sea bottom and healing mineral water have propelled the swift growth of the village into a competitive tourist destination.
Kranevo has succeeded an ancient Roman stronghold, known as 'Ekrene' or the harbour 'Kraneia'.
Traces of the Roman fortress, which was exploited during the Middle Ages as well, have been found on the southern plateaus above the village.
Kranevo fascinates tourists with its whitewashed houses and red-tile roofs. Every house has a flower garden and a vine arbour where beaming hostesses welcome their guests and treat them to some chilled grape brandy. Home-made dishes are usually prepared with vegetables and fruits grown by the locals.
Relatively close to Kranevo is the famous Aladzha rock monastery. In the opposite direction is the town of Balchik with its beautiful palace and Botanic Garden.
The main coastal road passes through the eastern outskirts of Kranevo. One can rely on the regular Varna-Albena and Varna-Balchik bus lines, which also stop in the village of Kranevo. The big resorts of Golden Sands and Albena are very close to the small village of Kranevo. Tourists can take a pleasant walk along the beach to Albena.
