The cult village of Tyulenovo on the Northern Bulgarian Black Sea Coast

I live in Varna, which is about 70 km far from the village of Tyulenovo on the Northern Bulgarian Black Sea Coast. I visit it regularly because of the extraordinary scenery and the dramatic seascapes, always challenging my photography skills. This place has one of the most unique and stunning locations, perched on the high rocks overlooking the Black sea. The coast near Tyulenovo is impressive with the multitude of rock arches and other formations which take on a mystical character in the morning.

In the summertime, people love cliff-hanging above the violent waves washing the coast. The so-called “Great Jump” event has been held last few years with the motto “Challenge your fears”. As the title suggests, people are challenged to jump off the cliffs, as the highest point is about 10 meters.

The undersea caves nearby were inhabited by the offspring of a pair of seals set free by the Romanian queen Maria, hence the village’s name (Tyulen – Seal). Unfortunately, they’re now extinct and can no longer be seen there. But instead, dozens of dolphins, cormorants, and other sea birds can be observed. This place is of particular importance for ornithologists because it crosses the famous migration route (Via Pontica, from Latin “Black Sea path”) for hundreds of thousands of birds heading from North to South, or back North.
