Event descriptionThe biggest competition in Bulgaria BULGARIA CUP will be held on the National park Golden Sands. The park lies 17 km north of Varna, near the Golden Sands resort. It was created in 1943 and covers an area of 1320 ha. According to the IUCN the park is V-th category protected area. The forests of the park go along the sea coast, surround the Golden Sands resort and in the south touch the forests of the town of Varna. The relief is hilly and detailed, terraced and sliding. Vertical rocks mark the boundary between the sliding areas and the plateau. From these vertical rocks to the sea there are steep ridges. Some of them is Aladja monastery - a medieval Orthodox Christian cave monastery hewn into a 25-m high vertical karst cliff. The average altitude is 110m, and the highest point in the park is 269.3 m above the sea level.
