combination of ochre
cliff sections and beach strips with sand dunes.
The native people are merry, friendly and show their hospitality to every
visitor at the village. Many guests of Krapec have tasted the famous local
specialty - Fish broth. The main occupation of the natives is growing
vegetables, farming and fishing. The village is usually quiet and sleepy,
unless you happen to be there on the Day of Bulgarian culture and the
Slavonic Script (May 24th). This day the village meets their guests and
turns out for festive folk-singing and dancing.
The atmosphere in this little-visited part of the coast seems to be world
away from the packed beaches of Varna, Golden Sands, Sunny Beach and
Albena. Locked in rural solitude, it's an ideal place to get away from it
all. The village is surrounded by one of the largest and finest beaches
(length>6 km.) on the Bulgarian seaside. The sand dunes and the beach are
remarkably undeveloped, and the whole gem of place maintains its wilderness
and authenticity. The Hellenes used to name the Black sea Pontus Euxinus,
amiable sea. And it’s true that the Black sea near Krapets is amiable and
hospitable: calm and pure, without ebb-tide, without dangerous fishes, with
fine sandy bottom.nterspersed are stone thrones, seats, pillars and
ornaments collected by the Queen.
Just a kilometer northeast of Krapets is a fish-rich Dourankoulak lake. It
attracts fishing fans with plenty of Pike-perch, Carp, Catfish, Bream,
Crucian carp, Rudd, and even European eel.
On the big island in the Durankulak lake is discovered the temple of Kibela
- the oldest prehistoric necropolis in continental Europe.
South of the Krapets are two more lakes shrouded in bulrushes, the Shabla
lake and the Ezerets lake. These lakes are frequented by many varieties of
birds, principally ibises, herons and grebes. The wetlands serve as water
supply for domestic and industrial use, agriculture irrigation, fishing (
Northern Pike, Perch, Catfish, Carp, Crucian carp, Тench) and livestock
