Shkorpilovtsi is situated eight kilometers east on the coast and reached by a good secondary road that follows the river. The town is named after two Czech brothers who were instrumental in bringing their expertise to advance Bulgarian archaeology in the late 19th century. Their work helped form the foundation for the Varna archaeological museum. Specializing in medieval Bulgarian archaeology, one of the brothers is buried at the medieval kingdom of Pliska.
This area has recently been allocated for development as a new resort on the Black Sea coast. Offering clean air and superb sandy beaches that gently slope down to the water it is an ideal location for family holidays and those looking to invest in an area not previously available.There is an extensive coastal nature reserve close by.
Two campgrounds, the Izgrev and the Horizont, are in the vicinity. The Izgrev sits farther inland on the river, just off the road toward Staro Oriachovo in a heavily wooded area.
