A small port on the southern coast of Bulgaria, inhabited by Turks, Gagauz, Bulgarians and a substantial number of Greeks. It experienced some development as the centre of grain export mainly during the nineteenth century. In the city there existed a notable Greek community until 1906, which maintained one or two lower-class schools intermittently. One of the Greek churches, which belonged to the Greek state, survived till 1940.
