30 km, South of Varna lays the impressive nature reserve of the River Kamchiya. The Longoza Nature Reserve covers an area of 842 hectares on the low banks of the Kamchia River as it flows into the Black Sea. It is not a usual forest as creepers some of which up to 50 meters long form a green “curtain” that is difficult to pass through. High century-old trees stoop over the river. Sunshine seeping through the branches creates a strange feeling of mystery.
What you see there will remind you of a tropical forest. In fact this is the last representative of a longoz (swamp forest) in Europe. Over 40 tree and plant species thrive in this nature reserve. Some rare plants - the swamp snow drop, squall and goldilocks add to the magic of the forest. From the small resort Patrick your personal guide, will hire a boat and you will take an amazing ride up the river and possibly catch a glimpse of the local bird life - pelicans, kingfishers and waterfowl!
