      Kavarna is an excellent place for your vacation. Away from the noise of the bigger black sea resorts, closer to the nature, nice small hotels and delicious bulgarian (and foreign) food. Here you will meet friendly people (inc. me) and have graet fun. Every summer - rich cultural life (music fests, fish fest and others).

      Kavarna is an unspoilt paradise, so very different from the rest of the black sea coast which is being over developed and is very urbanised. Go to kavarna to sample the real bulgaria; unspoilt, lots of wildlife in their natural habitat, small quaint beaches, a beautiful place to relax amoungst friendly people...wonderful!!
