The town of Kavarna is situated 48 km. from Varna, and has 13,000 inhabitants. The town was founded in the 5th c. BC by Greek immigrants, who built the Bizone fortress. On the same spot, in the 2nd Century, the Romans built a settlement, which grew to be an important military and cultural centre of the region of Scythia Minor. Later, the fortress was used also by the Byzantines. In the 14th Century, the settlement became the capital of the semi-independent Dobroudja Principality - the Karvun Hora, run by the boyars Ivanko, Ballik and Dobrotitsa.
