The Mysterious Cape Emine in Bulgaria, where Ancient Legends are still Alive Today

Cape Emine is a rock nose on the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria. It is among our most scenic natural landmarks in our country. Represents an almost 60-meter-long wall. In clear and sunny weather, however, the nose is amazingly beautiful and majestic. From its crown is visible all of our coastline, dotted with bays and rocky noses, and to the north stands Galata cape.
