The City of Bourgas

Some tourist information

Bourgas is the fourth largest city in Bulgaria (map), situated in the south-eastern part of the country. The climate here is temperately continental with a distinct impact from the Black Sea. 

It’s not famous as a beach resort (although you can find wide crowdy beaches here), but more as a turning point to the big southern Black Sea resorts in Bulgaria like Sunny Beach, Nessebar, Sozopol, Dyuni, elenite, etc. The Airport of Bourgas is the one where the international flights land in the summer.The Port of Bourgas is the biggest sea port in the country. A Duty Free Zone was established in 1989 with the objective to create most attractive conditions for foreign investors.

The favourable geographical location and advanced transport infrastructure of Bourgas are good prerequisites for development of tourism and trade. Bourgas is not only an important industrial centre in the country, it has also considerable resources for tourism. What attracts people here mostly is undoubtedly the sea. Art and culture, together with propagation of cultural values is fostered by 7 state-owned and 11 municipal institutes. On the territory of Bourgas municipality there are 2 universities and 4 colleges comprising more than 6200 Bulgarian and foreign students. Bourgas is the largest city in Southeastern Bulgaria. It spreads on four terraces near the Bourgas creek.

The surrounding lakes take in water from the rivers Aitoska, Russokastrenska, Sredetska and Fakiiska. The amazing combination of sea, sun and virgin nature make Bourgas a favourite spot for many holiday-makers.The artistic spirit of the local people adds up to the unique atmosphere of peace and isolation from the hectic city life. Bourgas enables you to enjoy the breathtaking folklore show of the Balkan countries in the International folklore festival; the rich variety of colours and odours in the annual National exhibition FLORA – Bourgas excite every citizen and visitor of the town. Bourgas will give you a warm welcome – hospitality and kindness of the southerners are deeply moving; the emotional Bourgas nights will remain a never-to-be-forgotten experience; no other spot of Bulgaria is so close to sea and its romantic atmosphere as Bourgas.
