The mouth of the Kamchiya River is situated 34 km south of Varna, or in the middle of the coast line stretching out to the town of Byala. The Kamchia resort is situated there.
The mouth of the Kamchiya River is one of the most beautiful sights along the Bulgarian coast. The region is known for its wide beaches, starting from an area called Paletsa (The Thumb) to the north and ending to the Black Cape near the village of Shkorpilovtsi to the south. A recently-built holiday complex is situated at the river's mouth.
The merger of two small rivers springing from the Eastern Stara Planina Mountain - Louda Kamchiya and Golyama Kamchiya – gives birth to the Kamchiya River. Running down through the Balkan Mountain, Kamchiya meanders through a grove called Longoza, which features tropical flora. Besides various trees and bushes, ferns, reed and yellow water lilies also grow here. The frequently flooded place is protected by UNESCO. The reserve is 40km long (stretching throughout the Longoza forest to the river mouth) and 5km wide at some places. One can see here does, deer, sea hawks, eagles, wild boars and wild cats, among others.
Once, Kamchia was called Panisos. Later, Slavs gave it the name of Ticha. Its contemporary name is considered to be of Kouman origin. The Romans built a stronghold called Erite on its left bank. Later, the Lipovani tribe settled along its banks. The tribe was an offspring of Russian followers of the Gregorian Calendar who came here from the mouth of the Danube.
