Dobrich Region is located in the easternmost part of the hilly Danubian Plain and Dobrudzha.
The boundaries with the Black Sea, the Danube River and Romania coincide with the national borders.
The relief consists of lowlands and hilly plateaus. Low plateaus of up to 150–200 m high are very typical of this region.
It is called the ‘Granary of Bulgaria’. Typical of the agriculture in the region is wheat, fodder and technical crops.
There is an oil and gas field near Shabla. The region lies remote from major international transport corridors that pass through the country.
The territory of the region is a unique mosaic of natural and archaeological sites of interest.
Near the lakes of Shabla and Durankulak there are law-protected damp areas of international importance.
These territories are the most significant winter quarters in Europe for many water birds.
Kaliakra Reserve is the only one in Bulgaria, which extends over sea area.
The furthest northern riparian dense forest at the Black Sea coast in Bulgaria is located in Baltata.
The seaside holiday tourism is concentrated mainly in Albena and Rusalka holiday resorts, the towns of Balchik and Kavarna, the village of Kranevo and the camping sites near Shabla.
Dobrich Region offers suitable conditions for hunting tourism (four game preserves are located on the territory of the region), business and conference tourism (in Albena and Rusalka), and fangotherapy (in the resorts of Shablenska Tuzla and Balchishka Tuzla).
