History of Kiten

The Romans called the settlement Oroudiza. The town existed till the fall under Turkish domination and after that it was abandoned. One can still see ruins of the settlement lying on the cape.  The river of Karaagach is very beautiful; it flows into the sea at the southern part of the Urdoviza Bay. The marsh mouth is full of fish. There are five camping sites in the vicinity: Atliman, Les, Koral, Koop and Yug.

There is a legend telling about a young woman called Stana who escaped from the harem of the Sultan. Amazed by her courage the Sultan promised to free the land she could reach on horseback. After a days long ride the horse died on one of the beaches that up to this day bears the name of Atliman - the bay of the horse.
