In ancient times, Chirakman used to be an impressive peninsula, famous with its importance for navigation. During the first millennium BC., here arises an acient village, known under the name of Bizone, which passes through a period of decline as a result of the military-political reasons and the catastrophic earthquake in first century BC. During the Roman era, the life in Bisone had recovered and the city became known economical and cultural center.

The found golden objects are a crown and a golden vessel with an image of a chariot with three horses and a lion statuette. All this proves that Bisone and cape of Chirakman were inhabited by rich Thracian aristocrats who left part of their impressive decorations throughout the area of Kavarna.

The muddy waterfall near village of Balgarevo

These are the newly formed mud waterfalls in Zelenka area, located near by Balgarevo village. They are formed as a result of the heavy rains in 2013. As a result of the rains, the strong underwaters began to descend from a height of 5-30 m. on the steep slope to the sea. Thus were formed the so-called mud waterfalls due to the worn soil.

The measured width is several hundred meters, while in dry weather are observed numerous small waterfalls with more or less water. During and after heavy rains, are noticed many “vadichiki” (separate flows of water) along the entire waterfall length. This might increase the danger of sliding bigger amounts of earth.
