If you’ve always dreamed of exploring the Black Sea, then Burgas is the place you’ll want to be. It is a place of wonder, imagination, and relaxation.
The Burgas Sand Sculptures Festival is one of the best examples of the city’s personality. It’s held each summer in July at Ezero Park and the sculptures rise higher than you are. Each is made entirely from sand and is one of the most amazing things you’ll ever see in person.
You can also enjoy everything the Black Sea and Burgas offers with an afternoon stroll through Maritime Park. You’ll find beautiful flowers, fantastic fountains, and numerous sculptures proudly on display all year long. The views of the water are beyond spectacular, especially from the terraces, and don’t forget to enjoy some time at the beach while you’re there.
There are museums to see in Burgas, though they are smaller and have more of a boutique feel to them. The Archaeological Museum is the best, providing exhibits that include Neolithic tools made from flint. There is a Natural History Museum and an Ethnographic Museum that cover the cultural and geographic history of the region as well.
The real hidden gems of Burgas, however, are the corner cafes and small family-run restaurants that can be found throughout the city. You’ll find flavor profiles to fit any preference, including those who wish to try something local, such as a shepherd’s salad or a classic musaka. Visit during a warm summer’s day and you’ll find yourself craving tarator.
Burgas is one of the best holiday opportunities you’ve likely never tried. Push this destination to the top of your list.
