Visit Kamchia Nature reserve:
The protected area of Longoza is the former buffer zone around Kamchiya Reservation. Longoza was declared a protected area by order No ??-523 of 12 July 2007.
The total area of the protected site is 230 hectares, 70 of which are forest areas and protected dense forests, 160 hectares are agricultural lands.
Typical for the protected areas are the dense forests, which grow on alluvial deposits in the earth during the periodic flooding, caused by the river Kamchiya. The wetland areas along the river and the dense forests are considered to be a natural wetland at the Black Sea coast. The landscape around the Kamchiya reservation and in the protected area is almost flat; the only slopes are in the northern parts near the sea.
The usual floods in the dense forests happen when the water level of Kamchiya river rises. This usually happens in the spring .
A variety of plant and animal species can be seen in the protected area of Longoza.
Tourist expeditions are allowed from Kamchiya river to the borders of the reserve. However, tourists must comply with certain requirements.
Kamchia River - The merging of two small rivulets, springing from the eastern Balkan Range - Luda Kamchia and Golyama Kamchia, forms the Kamchia River. It empties some 9000 liters of water every second into the Black Sea. During the spring, that amount can be as much as 30, 000 liters per second. Running down through the Balkan Range Kamchia meanders through unique woodland called Longoza. The Ropotamo River, Dyavolska River and the Veleka River have similar geological structure - sandstone, clay loam formations covered with wild vegetation in the quiet and large firth. Once Kamchia was called Panisos and the Slavs called it Ticha. Its contemporary name is of Kouman origin. The Romans built a stronghold called Erite on its left bank. Nowadays the frequently flooded area is a reserve named after the Kamchia River. The reserve is under the protection of UNESCO. It is 40 km in length and 5 km in width in some of its parts. There are deer, sea hawks and eagles, wild boars, wild cats etc.

Delicious Food and wine
The centuries-old Bulgarian culinary traditions have created remarkable combinations of fresh ingredients, a joy to the eye and the palate, a real veritable gastronomic treasure.The Bulgarian culinary geography abounds in delicious specialities and exotic dishes: Shopska salad (fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, onion and white feta cheese), Bansko-style kapama (meat and vegetables stewed in an earthenware dish), Rodope cheverme (lamb roasted on a spit over an open fire), Danube fish soup and Sozopol-style mussels, Thracian katmi (special kind of pancake) and Dobroudja banitsa.
What can be better than a tasty dish in combination with a glass of good wine!? If you think so, you will be satisfied in Bulgaria.
Because Bulgarian white and red wines are world famous with their excellent quality and have been awarded prizes at international competitions and exhibitions.
When we speak about the Bulgarian culinary traditions we can`t fail to mention the features of the local product Bulgarian yogurt. It is unique because of the bacteria Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus which can exist only in Bulgaria. These bacteria ingest natural milk sugars and release lactic acid as a waste product. This way they form the specific taste of the Bulgarian yogurt.
Yogurt is the main ingredient of the traditional Balkan drink airan (ayran). Bulgarians prepare it of yougurt mixed with water in ratio 1 pint plain yogurt + 1 pint cold water. In Turkey for example they prepare it in ratio 1 pitn plain yogurt + 2 pints cold water + salt.
Yougurt is also in the base of the traditional cold soup with cucumbers, garlic, dill and nuts calledtarator- one of the masters of the local regale. It can be served as a starter, as a side-dish together with the main dish- it is something like salad, drink or fixings.
Bulgarian white feta cheese and yellow cheese are aslo milk products with an international reputation of delicious speciality.
Although it may seems that the local yellow cheese is very similar to the yellow cheese produced in Middle Europe, they are quite different. The most obvious difference is in the way they look: the Middle European cheese has a lot of holes in it and the local yellow cheese doesn`t. The big size and number of the holes in the Middle European cheese are criteria for good quality, while their presence in the Bulgarian yellow cheese speaks about bed quality.
The white feta cheese is obligatory part of the famous traditional Shopska salad ( Shopsky-style salad)- the starter that every Bulgarian dinner and feast begins with. Its simple ingredients sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, onion and sprinkled with shredded white cheese on the top are so popular that humorously identify with the colours of the Bulgarian national flag: white as the cheese and the onion, green as the cucumbers, red as the tomatoes.
Bulgarian white feta cheese can be tasted in different varieties, not only like a part of salad or sauce. Stuffed in peppers, baked in gjuveche (ceramic small dish), in Shopsky style, in Panagjurishte style, like fried pieces, covered with eggs and flour- it offers a lot of tasty options.
Bulgarian traditional pasty banica is known in various types. With cheese, spinach, rice, scallion or marrow filling in different regions of the country they prepare it in a number of ways but it`s always very delicious.
The famous Bulgarian wines
The archeology, the local folklore and literature provide a lot of evidences that the wine traditions in Bulgaria start from neolithic ages and are part of the culture of Thracians, Romans, Greeks, Slavs and Bulgarians. Produced with thousand-year-old traditions Bulgarian wine has the glory of one of the best wines.
More than 100 000 hectares are devoted to growing vines and many parts of the country are blessed with ideal natural conditions.
Bulgaria is symbolically separated into several wine producing regions.
For example fine Merlot is produced in southern Bulgaria, in Haskovo winery.
Bulgarian white wines as Riesling, Chardonnay, SauvignonBlanc are also famous all arrond the world.
There are only two traditional varieties that can be called Bulgaria`s card in terms of wine. One is Mavrud, and the other is Melnik, also know as Shiroka Melnishka Loza. Mavrud is grown in central Southern Bulgaria while Melnik belongs to the southwestern part of the county.
The best local white wines come from the northwest regions of the country- from Varna and Pomorie.
From the valley of Roses between the mountains Stara planina and Sredna gora we can enjoy the aromatic Misket wines.
The numberless local wine cellers, the quality wines that they produce are attractive for lots of wine admirers, which choose exactly Bulgaria to spend their holiday here, meeting the beauty of the country and tasting its excellent wines.

The Black Sea Coast region
Bulgaria borders five countries; Serbia, Macedonia, Romania, Greece and Turkey. This makes Bulgaria an excellent location for touring Eastern Europe. Bulgaria's currency is currently the Lev so the cost of living is much lower than many other European countries, offering a holiday that is good value for money.
The Black Sea coast has been an established tourist destination for over 20 years. The resorts of Golden Sands in the north (popular with investors) and Sunny Beach in the south (which is more commercialised) are both popular tourist hot spots.
