Kamen Bryag

Kamen Bryag is a village in northeastern Bulgaria.

It is located in Kavarna Municipality, Dobrich Province, on the Black Sea coast. The population was 76 in 2009.


Yailata National Archaeological Reserve is located two kilometers south of the village.


The population of the village consists entirely of ethnic Bulgarians, descendants of settlers from the Balkan Mountains (Kotel and Elena regions) and Southern Romania. A compact group of ethnic Bulgarians, who previously inhabited Northern Dobruja, settled in Kamen Bryag as a result of the Treaty of Craiova. As of the 2000s, the village is a popular summer holiday destination.

Cultural and natural sights

2 km south of the village is the archeological site “Yailata” with numerous tombs, stone dwellings and an early Byzantine fortress wall. To the northwest of the village is a large necropolis of Scythian tombs. At the entrance of Yailata, a Thracian altar of the sun is discovered and cleared. There are a number of megalithic monuments along the high coasts north and south of the village.

On July 25, 2007, an information center was opened in the village providing information about the Yaylata archeological reserve and other tourist sites in the region.

About 1.5 km from Yailata is the Lamb, a gas field from the late 1950s that has been burning to this day.
