burgasBurgas is the second largest city at the Black Sea Coast with a population of about 212 000 people. The city is situated in the western part of the Burgas Bay on a small peninsula surrounded by 3 lakes: Atanasovsko in the north, Burgas in the west and Mandrensko in the south.

Burgas is a connecting point to the southern Black Sea resorts in Bulgaria like Sunny Beach, Nessebar, Sozopol, Dyuni, Elenite and others. It is a cultural and a scientific center with universities, a theatre, an opera, and a symphony orchestra. The Burgas’ port is the biggest in Bulgaria which makes the city one of the important industrial and tourism centers of the country.

Burgas centerAway from the busy centre of the city is the shady Sea Garden. It is a lovely place to stroll in hot summer days. The park is situated on a hill next to the coast, and is rich in flowers, trees and sculptures. Within the park there is a casino, a small zoo and an open-air theatre, which houses the annual International Folklore Festival, and where participants in the Golden Orpheus Pop-Festival perform. A beautiful staircase leads from the park down to the central beach with the dark sand which gets warm in a short period of time and has good healing properties.

One of the most impressive tourist sights in the city is the District Museum of History. It houses an archaeological hall with a rich collection of items dating back to the old colonies along the Black Sea coast. The Ethnographic Museum is also of particular appeal to foreigners for its exhibitions of masks of koukeri, traditional costumes, ritual accessories, fabrics and embroidery. The Museum of Nature and Science is another place of interest to visitors of the city. It contains exhibits of insects, reptiles, fish and plants. 

Among the church buildings, one may wish to visit the St. St. Cyril and Methodius Cathedral. The cathedral is interesting for its marvelous frescos and wooden altar. Another impressive sight of Bourgas is the Armenian Church located close to Bulgaria Hotel.
