landmarks

  • Pobiti Kamani /the petrified forest/: It consists of several groups of natural rock formations on a total area of 70 km². The formations are mainly stone columns between 5 and 7 metres high and from 0.3 to 3 metres thick. The columns do not have solid foundations, but are instead hollow and filled with sand, and look like they are stuck into the surrounding sands, which gives the phenomenon its name. In order to be preserved, Pobiti Kamani was designated a natural landmark in 1937. There are a number of theories regarding the phenomenon's origin, divided roughly into two groups — supporting an organic or a mineral origin. According to the former, the formations are the result of coral activity, while the latter explain the phenomenon with the prismatic weathering of the rocks, the formation of sand and limestone concretions, or lower Eocene bubbling reefs.
  • Batovata Area: There are plenty of deciduous forests of tree species such as Quercus cerris, Q.Frainetto and Carpinus Betulus. The rest of the territory is covered with fields, pastures, orchards, arable land and vineyards. Most of the vineyards are located near the villages scattered in the area. The greatest asset of this landmark is its geographic position - on the western Black Sea migratory route Via Pontica. Batovata is a natural habitat of 184 bird species, 50 of which are endangered species in Bulgaria, 80 - in Europe and 7 species are endangered worldwide.
