      What to do in Burgas?

      1. The Sea Garden is a park beside the sea offering a pleasant patch of greenery. Whether during the day or in the evening, take a stroll and you won’t notice the time flying by. If you’re feeling a bit peckish, there are numerous restaurants, bars and cafés nearby to satisfy you.
      2. In the city centre, not far from the Saints Cyril and Methodius Cathedral, is the Ethnographic Museum which will introduce you to the region’s way of life through furniture and period costumes. It is on two floors; the ground floor traces the city’s history from 1890, while on the first floor you can see pieces of embroidery, jewellery, and headdresses, etc.
      3. If you want a deeper look at the region’s history, go to Nessebar, one of the oldest cities in Europe. Founded around 3,000 years ago by the Thracians, the ancient city of Nessebar has a wealth of vestiges from the past and monuments from the Byzantine era. Thanks to its heritage, the city has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1983.
      4. Very close to Nessebar, just 35 km from Burgas, is Sunny Beach, the largest seaside resort in Bulgaria. With more than 130 hotels and as many restaurants, you’ll be spoilt for choice. If you have time to take a trip to the Golden Sands, don’t hesitate! In the heart of a natural park, this seaside resort is world famous for all its activities (day and night), its beaches and magnificent landscapes. It is worth noting that this is also a good time to visit Varna as you make your way to the park, as this charming town is on your route.
      5. The quiet town of Sozopol, located just 30 minutes from Burgas, is also well worth a detour. It is one of Bulgaria’s most charming and picturesque sites. The ancient fortified city is still very well preserved, and regularly welcomes artists, painters, musicians, poets, etc.
      6. Saint Anastasia Island is perfect for a short day trip. The island’s size is not in proportion to the treasures it contains. Indeed, although it isn’t very large, it is magnificent, with its lighthouse, little quays, and delicious local delicacies.
      7. Those who want to feast their eyes will also find two superb lakes close to Burgas: Lake Atanasovsko, which is a nature reserve, and Lake Burgas, which is Bulgaria’s largest natural lake.
