20 kilometers north of Varna the panoramic highway following the curves of the steep shore leads to the indisputable pearl of the North Black Sea shore – Golden Sands resort. Here the fine sand of one of the longest beaches on the shore meets the freshness of the unique natural park. The cool summer here starts as early as May and often lasts till the end of October and the transparent sea water in the wide bay remains warm even at sunset.

The idea for developing a big Bulgarian resort on the Black Sea was born in the middle of the 50-s of the last century. Quite naturally the choice was the area Uzunkum (from Turkish – long sand) north of Varna. In a unique way a virgin forest and a wide beach are combined in the place.

The natural reserve Golden Sands on a surface of 1320,7 ha is declared a protected territory in the remote 1943. The deciduous forest follows the shoreline and surrounds the resort. On the territory of the Golden Sands reserve there are the rock Aladzha Monastery declared as a culture monument in 1957, the Catacombs caves, remains of a basilica and ancient fortress dating back to IV-VII century in Kaleto area as well as remains of a Slavonic settlement.

Today the Golden Sands resort is a destination of European magnitute, a prefered vacation place for more and more foreign and Bulgarian tourists
