The Second City of the Bulgarian Riviera
Located at the westernmost edge of the Black Sea, the bourgeoning burg of Burgas offers plentiful beaches and parks. The Sea Garden, an extensive centerpiece of a park, runs alongside the city's main beach. Despite being sacked many times of the centuries, Burgas' prime location and busy port has kept it thriving, and helped it become Bulgaria's fourth largest city.
Route for Burgas tour
Situated between several lakes and the sea, and with Bulgaria's one populated island just offshore, it doesn't take long to trade Burgas' bustling center for natural beauty. Nearby Nessebar makes for an ideal day trip, with its UNESCO-listed cobblestone streets, charming wooden homes, and ancient waterfront.

What I love about Burgas


Trip Planner

I like Burgas' Sea Gardens, the country's second largest seaside park, as well as the views from the Teresata and Sea Casino. I like to enjoy a coffee at Troykata Square, admiring the surroundings, then walking down the "Largo," the nickname for Alexandrovska Street and Aleko Bogoridi Boulevard, which serve as Burgas' pedestrian main street.
