Kamchia reserve

The Kamchia water lily
The Kamchia water lily

The famous Kamchia reserve is 30 km south of the city of Varna. The Kamchia River runs through it and permanently forms a sand barrier. Its waters often overflow its banks to the valley. By this way appeared an overgrowth which is an impressive forest with gigantic trees entwined by climbing plants such as ivy and traveler’s joy. It is a real tangle of woods and the sun hard struggle through it. This is the Longoz - a real virgin jungle with 40 tree species. The most impressive are the old elms, oaks, ash trees and maples. The old syncline of the river leaves swampy areas, called azmatsi. They give the final touch to the mysterious appearance of the forest, inclining branches over the yellowish waters. Rushes, yellow and blue irises, buttercups grow on the banks and between them distinguishes the royal beauty of the white blossoms of the water lily. The fascination of the place attracts both nature lovers and naturalists. In the reserve you can see rare representatives of the Bulgarian flora and fauna. This ecosystem numbers over 200 species of higher plants. Most of them are listed in the Bulgarian Red book. Picking plants and bushes is absolutely forbidden. The variety of 25 fish species has given occasion for the forming a small fishing village.

In addition there are 14 reptile and amphibian species, such as rare birds, propagating in the reserve. The most interesting of them are the red stork, the big hawk and so on. They are all protected by the Bern convention about the conservation of the Wild European Nature.

North of the river mouth there is a lovely beach strip with fine sands which is a favorite place for many people from Varna. The sea is more shallow and less salted because of the flowing of the river.

The international E-87 road leads to the reserve. Among the forests there are a lot of asphalted roads, hotels and camping sites.
