The tomb of the Egyptian goddess Bastet in Gradishte near by Malko Tarnovo The card was also intrigued by the Prophetess Baba Vanga, who said to the scientists unique facts about solar sanctuary. According to her - Gradishteto in Strandja is sacred and there lies the tomb of an Egyptian goddess, "which holds the scepter of extraterrestrial matter in his hands.“ Mutafchiev said that after the death of Bastet, her body was transferred to these lands by sea (its evidence can be read in his book “Homo sapiens about the origin of homo sapiens').

Fortress Urdoviza in Kiten An ancient village situated on the eponymous peninsula Urdoviza, in what is now Kiten. Archaeological research dates back to the early settlement Bronze Age (around 300 BC).. Unfortunately, much of the ancient remains today are under water, making research extremely difficult. History: Near by Kiten and Primorsko municipality – there can be seen the ruins of the fortress Urdoviza located 35 km from the Black Sea town of Sozopol on the eponymous peninsula. Since the time of the Trojan War - 12 century BC It is proved that there was a port, both in antiquity and in the Middle Ages, when the castle was an important Bulgarian fortress and naval base. It is an ancient Thracian settlement, which is confirmed by the abundant finds of ancient stone anchors and ceramics from the late Bronze Age, Old Classical and Hellenistic ceramics / mainly fragments of amphorae / and fragments of Roman vessels found in the two bays around the peninsula.
Fortress Urdoviza in Kiten The wall was surmounted by two towers. Now here's the remains of the fortress wall that is blocking the peninsula from the mainland. At the end of the XIX century the wall of Urdoviza was very well preserved. One of the hypothesis is that this is the last port that was exporting provisions for Troy that was blocked, which led to Troy’s fall. During the excavation of fortifications Urdoviza, which is one of the most - preserved fortress on the Black Sea, were found 12 steps, two observation towers, fireplace, and a clear door. According to an ancient tradition, recorded by the Brothers Shkorpil south of Urdoviza was passed through the Gulf of stone – a wall to the opposite headland which kept the harbor from the storms. Ships entered through an opening that was blocked by an iron chain.
