Persian Treasures Lie under Cape Kaliakra


The countless treasures of Persia seized by Alexander the Great, are buried at the bottom of the Black Sea at Kaliakra Cape, said oceanographer from the city of Varna Trayan Trayanov yesterday. Recently the Space Research Institute in Moscow confirmed his thesis.
Scientists believe that the treasure was buried in underwater catacombs and caves under Kaliakra Cape. Ancient Greek geographer and historian Strabo proposed the hypothesis for the first time. Many centuries later Bulgarian writer Tsoncho Rodev revived the legend. His short story, published in the 1960s, stirred the emotions of black archeologists in Bulgaria. A ferryboat captain even made a photo of Kaliakra and kept it for a long time in a safe in the Institute of Oceanography in the city of Varna.
However, to this very day the treasure has not been found.
