The valley of Kamchia river

Kamchia is one the biggest Bulgarian rivers flowing into the Black Sea. It is formed by the rivers Golyama Kamchia (Big Kamchia) and Luda Kamchia (Mad Kamchia) and is 245km long. The region of the river was well known even in Antiquity when it had different names – Panisos, Ticha, Kamchia. Even today along its left bank, above the estuary, one can see the  remains of an ancient Roman  fortress.  In  the Middle Ages the river was navigable. There is a hypothesis that there was a shipyard in the 14th century where ships were built  for  the  needs  of  the  rulers Balik, Dobrotitsa,  and Ivanko. There is a curious statement by Evlia Cheleby, the famous  traveler  from 17th century  that about 500 shipsare wintering in the river. The holiday- makers enjoy the marvellous nature and the beach with fine golden sands. The real adventure though is the voyage up the river in a boat through a marshy forest.
The area  is well preserved as  it was declared protected biosphere reserve in 1951. There are maple, elm and oak forests, different liana species.
