One of the most beautiful places on Bulgarian Black sea shores. The legend says that 40 virgins braided their hair with one another and jumped off the cape's edge to prevent falling into Ottoman's hands. There is a monument on the highest part of the cape.
Location: Cape Kaliakra, Kavarna, Bulgaria
