- Kiten, Burgas Province
Kiten ( _bg. Китен, meaning "lovely, pretty") is a seaside resort town on the
Bulgarian Black Sea Coast, part of Burgas Province. It is situated on the small Urdoviza peninsula, near the mouth of the Kiten River, and has two beaches: Atliman and Urdoviza.
Balkan Warsin 1912–1913, there was only an unmanned pier used to export wood and charcoal on the site. Kiten was founded in 1931 by 30 families of Bulgarian refugees from Eastern Thracewho resettled there from the newly-founded refugee village of Fazanovo. However, the area has roots from Antiquity, as amphoras from the 6th century BCwere found on the south beach (Urdoviza). Kiten was declared a national resort in 1962, and since 1981 it had been administratively a quarter of nearby Primorsko. On 17 June 2005the former village was proclaimed a separate town [http://www.bourgas.org/more_news.php?id=701] in order to more effectively cope with the growing number of tourists, primarily from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Serbia, Russiaand Germany(as of the summer of 2005).
