Burgas

Burgas is one of the largest cities in Bulgaria. It is home to more than 200 thousand people (from 7-million Bulgaria).

The city is very green, along the sea stretches a beautiful marine Park, with a lot of really cozy alleys, interesting monuments to outstanding personalities. And the rest of the city is literally buried in greenery. There are preserved old streets with picturesque two-storey houses. The modern part is also, basically, 5-6 storey houses on green streets.

You can get to Dor Burgas by bus from Sunny beach. The bus takes about 40 minutes, the fare is 6 levs.

A bus arrives at the bus station, located next to the railway.
From the station square departs the Central street of Burgas, which runs through the city center to the monument to Alyosha ("Alyosha" - the collective name of the Soviet liberators).

On the main street there are many shops and many restaurants. You can distinguish a good restaurant from a snack bar by the difference in the cost of main courses and beer. In a good restaurant, beer is quite expensive, but the main dishes – quite cheap: it is made to scare off casual visitors who come only for what would miss a glass or two.

Cook in Burgas is good And if you want to eat in a big company – it would be cheaper to go back to Burgas for lunch.

For shopping you can take a ride in the major shopping centers, but in order to just buy something for memory-enough shops on the main street.

To the left of the main street (if you go from the station) will be a modern part of the city, to the right – a large marine Park, behind which stretches a long public beach.

When the sea small drizzle of rain or cool weather, or you just burned by the sun - is to come to Burgas to spend here half a day, maybe all day.
