Yambol ↓


Yambol region lies in the south-eastern part of Bulgaria. It covers a territory of 3355,5 sq.km. which is 3,1 % of the total country area. It is bordered by the Sliven, Bourgas, Haskovo and Stara Zagora region. The southern border follows the state frontier line of the Republic of Bulgaria and the Republic of Turkey. There are 5 municipalities within the region: Bolyarovo, Elhovo, Straldja, Tundja and Yambol.
The Middle parts of Tundja valley spread over the most of the region’s territory: Yambol field 120m above the sea level, Elhovo field 100 m above the sea level, the Bakadjicite, parts of the St. Iliisky, Manastirsky and Dervensky uplands. The hilly plain relief predominates 100 – 150 m. above the sea level.


The North areas of the Middle parts of Tundja valley are characterized by trans-continental climate, while in the south parts of the region predominate continental Mediterranean climate. Along the Tundja River valley influences the local “White sea” wind. The average annual temperatures are 12 -12,5C, the average January temperatures are 0,6 - 1,2 С, respectively the average July temperatures are 22,6 - 22,8 C. The mild winter and the long vegetation period create favorable conditions for second crops cultivating. This possibility is practically not in use mainly because of the insufficient level of precipitations and the necessity of artificial irrigation. The average annual precipitations are between 530 - 540 l/sq.m.


The soil resources within the region are varied. Humus soils take considerable areas of the Middle Tundja lowlands suitable for grain, fodder and industrial crops. Maroon soils are spread along the St. Iliisky, Manastirsky and Dervensky uplands suitable for cultivating fruit plantations, vineyards, tobacco and so on. Alluvial-meadow soils are spread along the river valleys and are suitable for vegetable, rice and other crops growing.
Ores and minerals
The mineral resources are in limited quantities. Of economic importance is the lignite, excavated along the ledges of Middle Tundja River. The lignite field near Elhovo expands within an area of 60 sq.km. The power of the three coal beds is between 2,65 to 3,85 m, while the deposits reach 600 mln. tones. Deposits of granite are found near the village of Granitovo. Deposits of gabbro with high decorative quality are also found near the villages of Goliam Manastir and General Toshevo.

Water resources

Water resources within the region are limited. The Tundja River, the fourth of its size within the country is 398 km long flows through the region. Its essential tributaries are Mochuritca, Popovska and Calnica river. They are characterized by snow-rain rate, autumn-winter high water and sharply defined maximum in February. Under the influence of essential spring and summer precipitations the winter high water transfers into secondary spring high water so in the river rate forms an abounding in water phase during the period from November to April, through which flows 80-90% from the annual flow volume. The dam lake Malko Sharkovo is built on the Popovska river near the village of Malko Sharkovo with embankment wall with 55 mln cubic meters maximum volume capacity. There are mineral springs near the village of Steffan Karadjovo and Pravdino and the town of Straldja. The curable quality of the mineral water near the village of Steffan Karadjovo is similar to the quality of water at "Karlovi vari"- Czech Republic. This water has hydro carbonate (calcium-magnesium) mineralization.

Territorial resources

In the structure of the land fund within the region predominate agricultural lands. They take 76.9 % of the total region territory. The total forest area covers 15.5% of the region’s territory.

Here is established Game Shooting holiday-house for promotion game shooting tourism – deers, pheasant, wild pigs, ceclics and etc. The conditions are suitable for promotion of hunting tourism and game shooting of deers, pheasants, wild boars, etc. There are eight shooting lodges built. The perspectives in the forestry development are building a game shooting holiday house.

The ancient town of Kabyle, a centre of Thracian, Hellenic, Roman and medieval life and culture is an invaluable site with centuries-old history and treasures with universal importance, a symbol of the intransient and the eternal.
Kabyle is one of the most ancient Thracian settlements in our lands. Residential life here originates around an ancient cult centre – the Sanctuary, which is also an ancient solar observatory. At the beginning of ІІІ century B.C. Kabyle is the capital of the Odris country, lead by Spartok, who first among the Thracian governors is given the title of "bazileus" - king. During the III – II century B.C. the town mints its own bronze and silver coins with the effigy of the cult statue of Artemis Phosphoros, a defender of the town. The Roman troops conquer the town in 72 B.C. During the year 45 A.D. Kabyle becomes a part of the Roman province of Thrace and at the beginning of the second century, turns into one of the most important military camps, defending the area from the Black Sea to Thrimonzium and Adrianopolis. It is demolished by the Goths at the end of the third century. After inauguration of the Christianity as the official religion, Kabyle becomes an important early Christian religious centre. By the end of the fourth century the town slowly declines. The vast archaeological excavations implemented at its area uncover a big part of the town with valuable finds. There is not any other Bulgarian town of the kind where the different layers could reveal such a prolonged historical period. The excavations in Kabyle are subjects of discussions as being implemented since 1982 “Settlement’s Life in Thrace” national and international symposia. An archaeological base with studies, laboratories and studios for carrying out restoration and research work has been constructed near the park. Since 1986 within the park has been functioning an archaeological Museum, in which most interesting from various excavations finds at an area of 960 square meters have been exhibited.
