Maslen nos (Bulgarian Маслен нос) is a cape on the Black Sea, in southeastern Bulgaria. Maslen nos is the southernmost point of Burgas Bay. This Cape is the easternmost point of the Saddle Mountain beach which ends here on a peninsula (north-south extent: about 4 km, east-west distance about 3 km) and projecting into the Black Sea. Immediately on the Cape is a steep rocky coast into the sea. Viewed from the north Maslen nos recalls the outline of a lion's head - not to be confused with the rock band "lion head" on the river Ropotamo. On the cape is the chapel Sveti Nikola.

Kaliakra cape Created: 23 Feb 2015
Black Sea Kust
Probably the most popular legend about the place is one about 40 Bulgarian girls, who preferred to tie their hair together and jump into the Black Sea rather than face the prospect of being captured by the Ottomans. An obelisk dedicated to this legend is placed at the entrance to the cape, called The Gate of the 40 Maidens.[4] Another legend tells the story of Saint Nicholas, the patron of seamen, who was running away from the Ottomans when God made the earth under him longer and longer so he could escape, and the cape was formed this way. The saint was eventually captured and a chapel was built in 1993, symbolizing his grave. A dervish monastery is also said to have existed on the same place during Ottoman rule, which is thought to have preserved the relics of Muslim Bektashi saint Sarı Saltık.[4]

kaliakra - black sea Created: 23 Feb 2015
Black Sea Kust
The name "Kaliakra" is of Byzantine Greek origin. It is a combination of "καλός" ("beautiful") and "άκρα" ("headland" or "fortress") and is traditionally translated as "Beautiful Headland".[1][3] Kaliakra was the site of the naval Battle of Cape Kaliakra on 11 August 1791, part of the Russo-Turkish War (1787–1792). The first modern lighthouse on Kaliakra was built in 1866 by the Compagnie des Phares de l’Empire Ottomane; the present one (a 10-m cylindrical stone masonry tower with lantern and gallery) was erected in 1901, with focal plane height of 68 m and a white flash (every 5 seconds); it also has a radio navigation emitter and a foghorn.[2]

Kaliakra (Bulgarian: Калиакра) is a long and narrow headland in the Southern Dobruja region of the northern Bulgarian Black Sea Coast, located 12 km east of Kavarna and 60 km northeast of Varna. The coast is steep with vertical cliffs reaching 70 m down to the sea.[1] Kaliakra is a nature reserve, where dolphins and cormorants can be observed. It sits on the Via Pontica, a major bird migration route from Africa into Eastern and Northern Europe. Many rare and migrant birds can be seen here in Spring and Autumn and, like much of this coastline, is home to several rare breeding birds (e.g. Pied Wheatear and a local race of European Shag). The rest of the reserve also has unusual breeding birds; Saker Falcon, Lesser Grey Shrike and a host of others.
