Cape Kaliakra stands proud with its seventy meter high banks, serving as a natural braking point for the hurtling waves, turning the bay of Kavarna into a quiet haven. Translated from Greek Kaliakra means the beautiful cape. Before the Greeks this beauty was appreciated by the Thracian tribe Tirizi. In 1444 in the march against the Ottoman Empire the knight troops of Vladislav of Varna stopped at Cape Kaliakra. On 31st July 1791 the greatest battle in the Black Sea raged here. Along the west coast, the Russian squadron, led by Admiral Ushakov, defeated the Turkish navy.
The cape is about 15 min. drive away from Kaliakria. There is a charming restaurant situated inside the rocks at the actual cape.
