Burgas is a coastal city in southeast Bulgaria, usually at the top of lists of the country’s most liveable places.
It’s a fairly new settlement that was developed in the 19th century, but the shores of the lakes close by have been trading posts for thousands of years and witnessed one of the earliest civilisations in Europe.
Holidays in Burgas mean beach-time, family outings to the huge Sea Garden, excursions to museums and archaeology sites, as well as day trips to the many exciting destinations that lie up along the Black Sea coast.
Let’s explore the best things to do in Burgas:
1. Sea Garden
Among the many great things about Bulgarian coastal cities are their giant seafront parks, where amusements, sports facilities, gardens and cultural sites all come together in one attraction.
You’ll find yourself returning over and over to the Sea Garden during your stay, simply because so many of the city’s attractions are found here.
Within these 72,000 square metres are wooded parkland, elegant promenades with fountains, playgrounds, cafes, ice cream stands, an open air theatre, tennis courts – the choice of things to do just goes on and on, and in the summer evenings you can come down for a classical concert.
