Kiten is a main destination from where during the Trojan War, XIII and XII century BC. Troy received provisions for its survival during the 10-year siege. 
Kiten is part of the region called Europe, which is where the name of the continent Europe comes from. According to an ancient legend, Princess Europa - daughter of the Phoenician king Phoenix was kidnapped by Zeus and forced to live in Strandzha Mountain. The region was called Europe until the early Middle Ages. 
The combination of the forested branches of Strandzha Mountain and the sea contributes to the charm of the small resort village of Kiten, which becomes a paradise during the summer season. Beaches are the main natural resource that makes Kiten a resort village.
