WHERE IN BULGARIA ARE YOU?

First described by classical geographer Strabo, this cape, jutting for 2 kilometres out to sea in the easternmost reaches of Bulgaria, was the site of a major battle between the Russians and the Ottomans in the 18th century, reputed to be the biggest ever act of maritime warfare in the Black Sea. Its dramatic history is topped by the legend of 40 Bulgarian maids tying their hair together and jumping off the steep cliffs to avoid being Islamised by the occupying Ottomans.

SUMMER OF OUR VAMPIRES

Following the discovery of the "bones of St John the Baptist" in Sozopol, in 2010, Bulgarian archaeologists have had a heady start to this year's season. Again in Sozopol, the birthplace of National History Museum chief Bozhidar Dimitrov, excavations unearthed a series of graves, almost intact, in which an alleged vampire was buried. What led Dimitrov to conclude that the skeleton in question was a would-be "vampire" was a metal road piercing the chest of the man.
