Where is Draka?

 

Draka is a small village situated in the Municipalty of Sredets, south-eastern Bulgaria, in the region of Burgas - the Black Sea Coast part of Bulgaria. In the Village there is a Local Shop, Church (the Church is currently closed awaiting renovation works) and a Community Centre. Buses go from Draka to Sredets and Burgas twice a week. There is a small stream running through the village. It is  a scenic and rural locality, yet well located for access to both Sredets and Burgas.

 

As at August 2012, there are less than 100 people living in Draka.
