Beach resort in Bulgaria
RezovoExcellent1 Reviews 5/5
Location Rezovo is the most southern farthest located place along the Bulgarian Black Sea coast. It lies at the mouth of the Rezovska River, about 100 km away from the city of Bourgas and just 12 km south of Sinemoretz. The Rezovska river is the Bulgaria's natural boundary with Turkey. The small village of Rezovo has about 100 inhabitants. The beach is small but nice and it is rarely used as a holiday place. There are new villas built there and the people stay in the villas enjoy the quietness and the calm sea.
History The village of Rezovo was founded in 1905 but there was not a free access to it for the outsiders until 1989.It is one of the still-developing seaside resorts.
Places of Interest The town is used by private tourist companies, which offer unforgettable rides and few days' package tours on horseback along the coast and through the depths of the Strandzha Mountain natural park. The Strandzha mountain was declared as a natural park in 1995 and it is the largest one in Bulgaria. Even it is really very beautiful it is one of the least explored in Bulgaria, so it has preserved its natural wild. The mountain also has a lot of caves located in its western part, traces of ancient civilisations (such as stone figures, sun discs carved in stone, Thracian dolmens, fortress walls, Proto Bulgarian sanctuaries.
The villages located in the mountain are also unique in terms of spirit and architecture. Two such authentic villages to the southwest of Tzarevo on the road to Malko Turnovo are Kolodovo (22km away from Tzarevo) and Bulgari (17km away). The village of Bulgari is particularly famous for its 'nestinarski' dances (barefoot dance on glowing embers), held on the occasion of village fairs or on holidays, such as the one in St. St. Constantin and Elena on the 21st of May. Two natural reserves, Silkosiya and Tisovitsa, which fall within the boundaries of the Strandzha Natural Park, can be found to the south and west of Bulgari respectively. Only there you can see trees of some 200 years of age.
Sightseeing nearby Another attraction in the neighbourhood is the village of Gradishte where Thracian mounds were discovered. A few kilometres north of Rezovo lie the picturesque Silistar area.
Accommodation Naturally, private lodgings for guests of the village are not that much as in bigger towns along the coast. Yet the fact that the village is not that popular among tourists due to the border area it falls in and the distance from Bourgas and Varna makes it easy to find accommodation. Prices are generally low.
Catering A small fishermen's bar is open all year, while a few cafes and pubs open in the beginning of July and close towards the beginning of September. As the fishing season is at its peak during the Summer, about 10 fishing boats of local people ensure the supply of fresh fish for the Rezovo's residents and guests.
Transport There are a few daily buses connecting Rezovo with Ahtopol and Bourgas.
