DourankoulakThe village of Dourankoulak is the northernmost Bulgarian Black Sea settlement, located close to the country’s frontier with the Republic of Romania. It is 18 km north of the town of Shabla and about 107 km from Varna. Southeast of the village is the Dourankoulak Lake – a scenic place, where a great number of swamp and water birds make their nests, spend the winter or take rest during their migrations. A narrow strip of sand separates the lake from the sea. During archaeological excavations of the Golemiya Ostrov [Big Island] Mound in the Dourankoulak Lake, a unique archaeological find came to light, evincing human presence since the Late Neolithic Age (second half of the 6th millennium B.C.), a settlement of the late Aeneolithic Age, the Late Bronze and the start of the of Iron Age. After an interruption for some time, during the second part of the 9th century, a Bulgarian settlement also came into being on the Golemiya Ostrov. This is the largest archaeological site in the Dobroudzha, presented in which, almost without any interruption is the entire pre-history and most of the ancient and early medieval history of this part of Bulgaria. Finds from Golemiya Ostrov are housed in the History Museum in Dobrich and in the museum collection in the village. A picturesque 6-km long strip of beach extends between Dourankoulak and the village of Krapets – a secluded corner, perching on the seacoast. A dozen or so km from Shabla, it is attractive for the calm and quiet sea with a soft sand-covered bottom, with the dunes and the birds, spending the winter in the vicinities.
