Bulgaria – on the beach

The Black Sea area is very relaxing! Here is the Burgas/Bourgas (Бургас) region. First stop of course is the railway station.

Burgas is Bulgaria’s 4th largest city and the second most popular seaside resort region. With a current population around 210,000, it is large enough to have most conveniences yet small enough to enjoy without a big city feel.

Burgas lies on the Black Sea.

Some favourite spots are in the smaller towns just north of Burgas. The Black Sea is beautiful in summer and in addition to the Black Sea, there are several large inland lakes around the Burgas region.

The entire area is an important industrial, transport, cultural and tourist centre. Burgas has the largest and most important Bulgarian port.

The small communities around the Burgas area offer exceptional swimming.
