A port city, Bourgas is one of the largest in Bulgaria, situated on the Black Sea. It is not only the transit point for easy to reach resorts and beaches further south – including Sunny Beach, Nessebar and Sozopol – but interesting in its own right, offering a memorable holiday for everyone.

You will meet solo travellers, couples and families keen to discover a lively, well-kept city with its neat, pedestrianised centre and long, uncrowded beach, Marine Park and thriving cultural scene. Keep an eye out for traditional pottery or art to take home.

Bulgarian cuisine is representative of Eastern Europe and similar to other Balkan food. You will enjoy delicious meals with distinct Middle Eastern influences, often incorporating salads as appetisers, plenty of dairy products, soups, stews, grilled meats and pastries, and accompanied by wine or rakia – fruit brandy.
