The second day of our tour along the Bulgarian coastline will begin with visiting the beach located on the Border between Bulgaria and Romania and the Durankulak lake and the archaeological site of “Big Island – Durankulak” known among specialists as the Bulgarian Troy. The remains of stone buildings found there are refer to the early Eneolithic (4750-4500 BC) and defined as the earliest stone architecture in Europe. On the same island inside the Durankulak lake was discovered the largest prehistoric cemetery in the world. After this journey through the past we’ll be willing to hit the clean, long and spacious strip of Krapets beach, where we will spend the rest of the day.
