The town of Ahtopol, situated on a rocky peninsula, is 16 km distant from Tzarevo.
First there was an ancient Thracian settlement on this place. After that Romans built up a fortress, and Byzantintines gave it the name of Agatopolis-the town of Happiness.
Ahtopol is a small town with a pier in the southern part of the peninsula, and a lovely beach in the northern one. Nowadays it is a beautiful seaside resort in which people invest in new housing and road building. Here you will find the calm and the quiet of comfortable hotels and private rooms where you can really relax. Small restaurants, taverns, sweet shops and fastfood restaurants offer delicious Bulgarian meal.
In the outskirts of the town there are two villages– Brodilovo and Kosty, famous for their fire-dancing- ancient ritual dances, performed on live coals,that come into notice of the foreign tourists.
