    there was a gate here? where?

    There are some ancient ruines, caves, ancient winepress. You need a guide, otherwise you won't be able to see most of the things. I was lucky to have my brother with me, who's archaeologist and a very entertainins speaker. He showed us around and told us lots of great stories. There were other people there who had no idea what they're looking at and they were bored.
    BUT! During the summer there is a guy there who's in charge of the reservation and he'll show you around!

    What the sign says : "The cave-church has three compartments, the last of which is provided with an air-hole. A great number of crosses and proto-Bulgarian rhunic symbols are cut in the cave walls. Most probably the cave has been used as a church during the early medieval ages. For several centuries the local community used to celebrate here in the cave church the day of St. St. Constantine and Elena on May 21.

    The cave is one of the 101 well-explred cave dwellings. The stonimplements of production found in some of the caves prove human presence since the V-th millenium B.C. The last evidence of inhabitance is from the late Middle Ages when monks probably used some of the caves."

    "chimney" in the cave church

    chimney?

    you must be asking what's in the photo? hehehe..that's the weirdest "chimney" i've seen -it's just a hole that goes all the way up thru the rocks. you know, these were cave peope so they had fires. i don't know if the "chimney'' is a natural formation or people made it.
    i forgot to ask . i think the gate is down all the time, so you can't get to it...but you can see pretty much everythig.

    swimming with the dolphins

    my best memories involve the dolphins here...they'd go south very early in the morning and then come back in the late afternoon. i love watching them play and how the big dolphins take care of the baby dolphins. But the best ever is when dolphins decide to come play around you...unbelievable.

    the water here is may be the cleanest i knew in bulgaria..it's further north, farway from big ports and cities and tourists.

    i don't like sandy beaches...i find rocks more interesting...with shades and life (green or moving form). I like looking for animals between the rocks, or diving for clams or jumping from the rocks. WHen it gets too hot we just hide in the shades (like the rest of the animal kingdom).

    ritual steps and tombs underneath

    the steps face east and someone said they're used for religious rituals...i don't know how true is that, but it sounds intriguing.

    the ruins

    by zlatiq Updated May 3, 2004

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    ah, OK! we see it now!

    The ruins are from the Early Byzantine Period (3-5th century).
    It is so cool...the ruins and the whimsically-shaped rocks around and the sea beneath blend into something unique.

    people lived here?

    The first inhabitants lived herearound the V-th millenium B.C. Later on (in the late Middle Ages) some monks were using it to hide.

    my sis wished she had a flashlight

    these tombs (what i remember from that summer) date from around 6-7 B.C. and are made and used first by thracians and later (3-5 A.C) the're reused by the sarmatians
