Burgas resort in Bulgaria: attractions and entertainment
Bourgas is a large eastern city of the Bourgas Bay, which dynamically developed in the 20th century, becoming a large tourist and industrial center of Bulgaria. Sometimes you can read the opinion of tourists that there is not much to do in Burgas. It is absolutely unreasonable, because in the city there is a wide clean beach near the warm sea, many restaurants with delicious national food.
Despite the fact that Bourgas is not the main tourist city of the country, tourists come here at least for a few days, since it is convenient to get from Bourgas to the lakes and other historic cities of Bulgaria. For any destination from the city, the service “Transfer Burgas” is available to tourists.
Let’s consider, and what to do after sunbathing, water entertainment?
Burgas has a reputation as a financially accessible city for a quality vacation, and this is true. Tired of the hustle and bustle of the townspeople, especially families with children will surely enjoy a calm and measured rest in Burgas. It is impossible to say with confidence that the best hotels in Bulgaria are located in Bourgas, but an important advantage of the resort is its availability for the middle class.
A huge plus is the possibility of comfortable long walks in the fresh air. For them, along the entire coast, they built a colossal Sea Park with interesting sculptures, new carousels, green alleys, comfortable benches and hammocks, restaurants, ice cream trays and various goodies. Passing to the beach, walk along the so-called “bridge” – this is a pier that goes to the sea for 300 meters.
It is very interesting and informative to walk along two pedestrian streets: Aleksandrovskaya and Aleko Bogordi. On Bogoridi there is the famous two-meter-long “Gramophone”, and on Aleksandrovskaya the most famous symbol of Burgas is the Navel of Burgas or Compass, the artificial mark of the local zero kilometer. Immediately, almost a few meters away – the Arch of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker, who is the patron saint of the city.
In Burgas, there are reminders of religion. For the first you need to sail the sea to the island of St. Anastasia, where in the 14th century the Church of the Assumption of Our Lady was built. The largest church in Burgas is located in the center of the city – the Cathedral of Saints Cyril and Methodius, it is worth coming here in the evening to see the beautiful highlight. A few blocks from the sea, near the hotel “Bulgaria” is the ancient Armenian Apostolic Church “Surp Khach”.
With teenagers, be sure to visit the Burgas Historical, Ethnographic, Natural Science, Archaeological Museums with interesting expositions. Also visit the “Marine Cazino”, which in fact is a large cultural center, where various exhibitions, festivals, concerts and other cultural events take place.
Lovers of history, ancient architecture should definitely go to Sarafovo to inspect the ruins of the fortress, the ancient port and the embankment. It was here, in the Kraymorie quarter a couple of years ago, when archaeologists excavated to find the remains of a lost city, which was before Bourgas.
For the youngest, just beginning travelers in the Seaside Park there is a small amusement park “Children’s Place”. In it, the child can jump on trampolines, ride on the carousel, typewriters, and parents do not need to go far. If the child is older, then for serious entertainment you will need to go outside of Burgas.
Active life in Burgas boils from the earliest spring to autumn. At this time, Burgas receives guests and participants of song and dance festivals and competitions, both local and international. Pay attention to this when planning your trip. Indeed, simultaneously with a beach holiday, you can see interesting concerts. So feel free to buy tickets to Bulgaria – and on holiday in Burgas!
