Depart port and drive inland westwards of Varna. The first visit of the day is Petrified Forest. “Pobiti Kamani” or “Petrified Forest” National Nature Reserve is a unique geological phenomenon spreading over extensive area. The desolate scrubland is interrupted by scores of curious stone columns standing up to 7 meters high. The next visit is Tomboul Mosque in Shoumen - one of the oldest mosques preserved on the Balkan Peninsula and one of the few constructions representing the Ottoman Baroque style in Bulgarian lands. The mosque is in operation. Proceed for lunch accompanied by folk performance to the local restaurant. Continue to the “Kabiuk” Horse-Breeding Farm. The farm has long-standing traditions in horse-breeding and possesses a rich gene fund. Take a walking tour of the farm buildings, visit the museum and a stallion demonstration. Continue for visit to Madara Horseman Rock Relief, listed in UNESCO World Heritage. This archaeological site occupies the rocky side of a plateau. The place has been inhabited since the Stone Age and remains of Thracian, Roman, Byzantine, mediaeval Bulgarian and Turkish civilizations have been found there. A 5th-century fortress tops the high rocks above the two caves once inhabited by the Neolithic Man. Rejoin your coach and return back to Varna port.
