in Bulgarian: Шкорпиловци
The village of Shkorpilovtsi is a resort settlement, located 35 km south of Varna. It is exceptionally peaceful and attractive place for relaxation, offering a vast beach, mineral springs, coniferous and oak-tree forests.
The town is named after two Czech brothers who were instrumental in bringing their expertise to advance Bulgarian archaeology in the late 19th century. Their work helped form the foundation for the Varna archaeological museum. Specializing in medieval Bulgarian archaeology, one of the brothers is buried at the medieval kingdom of Pliska.
In close proximity to the village is the Longoza reserve for rare plant and animal species. From the north to the south the locality is surrounded by two branches of the Shkorpilovska river, flowing into the Black Sea.
Here is also Cherni Cape (Karaborun), which rises 80 meters high and it is the northernmost point of the Balkan Mountain at the place where it reaches the Black Sea.
The resort village offers hotels, holiday stations, villas, bungalows, as well as cosy private apartments.
