In Bulgaria, 378 km of coastline is waiting for you along the Black Sea! Fans of water sports will be able to enjoy their sports activities in the best conditions. Summer means a party atmosphere every day in the streets of pleasant seaside resorts: lots of stalls selling souvenirs or varied delicacies, alongside welcoming café terraces. There are many balneotherapy or thalassotherapy centres offering all types of treatments using local mineral water springs, famous for their healing powers.
On the southern coast of the Black Sea, ‘Sunny Beach’ – which, true to its name, is very sunny – is 9 km long. The sea here is pleasantly shallow, and is overlooked by some magnificent dunes. Close by is the historic town of Nessebar, with an old town that is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. During the day, visitors can enjoy the area’s coffee shops, restaurants and water parks, complete with some colossal slides. From dusk till dawn, the beach bars and trendy discos make the town a lively, vibrant place.
Eat fish from the Black Sea: the city of Burgas is located in a coastal region with a strong fishing tradition. Don’t miss out on tasting freshly-caught fish in one of the many welcoming restaurants.
Buy a rose-scented souvenir: Bulgaria has a long history of producing rose oil, and it continues to play a key role in the country’s economy. Be it rose-flavoured alcohol, rose soap or rose cream, Bulgaria’s prized rose oil is one of the most expensive essential oils and has many uses.
Get the wind in your sails: a boat ride along the Bulgarian coastline offers captivating views of chic marinas, natural landscapes and unspoiled bays.
Sozopol: built on a peninsula that reaches far out to sea, Greek seafarers named the town after their god, Apollo. With its quintessential stone and wood houses dating back to the 19th century, and its winding, narrow streets, the romantic old town vies with historic Nessebar as the most beautiful town in the country.
Nessebar: this charming town is one of the oldest in Europe, and is now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Strolling through the streets you’ll come across fascinating historical buildings and churches – some of which date back to the 14th century – all squeezed into the tiniest of spaces (850 x 300 m).
Visit one of Bulgaria’s many monasteries: the neighbouring monastery of Sveti Georgi near Pomorie, for example, where three monks still live today, is worth a detour. Its 18th-century monastery church is home to classic icons of considerable artistic value.
Around 30 km from Burgas Airport, not far from the historic town of Nessebar.
