Balgarevo

Balgarevo is a village in Kavarna Municipality, Dobrich Province, northeastern Bulgaria. As of December 2010, it has a population of 1,375 inhabitants.

According to local sources the village has been established by seven families. Descendants of these families also live in the village nowadays. The settlement has changed its location at least once after it was situated closer to Kaliakra cape, as of the hypothesis is epidemic disease. The old population of Balgarevo belonged to the Gagauz ethnic group. Later in mid-19th century large families from Kotel, Elena and Yambol regions follow the 'emigration flow' from inner Bulgaria to Dobrudja and settled in the village.

The two massive stone-built churches are popular landmarks. One is the so-called 'Greek church' due to the frescoes in Greek language on its walls. The presence of such is reasonable, as before the Liberation the local population failed to acknowledge the Bulgarian Exarchate by following the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople. There is also a certain Greek cultural and social influence that could be noticed even by the given names of the inhabitants. This period finally ended during the 1920s leaving of the Greek colonies which populated the Bulgarian Black Sea coast.

A serious initial resistance was exercised by the local population against the Romanian administration following the enforcement of Treaty of Neuilly-sur-Seine in 1919.

According to Prof. Bozhidar Dimitrov 'the archaeological excavations show that Kaliakra has been settled by Bulgars. Nowadays their descendants live near the cape in the village of Bulgarevo and are part of the Gagauz ethnic group by calling themselves ‘eski bulgar’ - old Bulgarians.'

Country - Bulgaria

Flag of Bulgaria
Bulgaria (България), officially the Republic of Bulgaria (Република България, tr. , ), is a country in Southeast Europe. It is bordered by Romania to the north, Serbia and North Macedonia to the west, Greece and Turkey to the south, and the Black Sea to the east. The capital and largest city is Sofia; other major cities are Plovdiv, Varna and Burgas. With a territory of 110994 km2, Bulgaria is Europe's 16th-largest country.

One of the earliest societies in the lands of modern-day Bulgaria was the Neolithic Karanovo culture, which dates back to 6,500 BC. In the 6th to 3rd century BC the region was a battleground for Thracians, Persians, Celts and ancient Macedonians; stability came when the Roman Empire conquered the region in AD 45. The Eastern Roman, or Byzantine, Empire lost some of these territories to an invading Bulgar horde in the late 7th century. The Bulgars founded the First Bulgarian Empire in AD 681, which dominated most of the Balkans and significantly influenced Slavic cultures by developing the Cyrillic script. This state lasted until the early 11th century, when Byzantine emperor Basil II conquered and dismantled it. A successful Bulgarian revolt in 1185 established a Second Bulgarian Empire, which reached its apex under Ivan Asen II (1218–1241). After numerous exhausting wars and feudal strife, the Second Bulgarian Empire disintegrated in 1396 and its territories fell under Ottoman rule for nearly five centuries.
