Bulgaria // The Black Sea coast //


The south coast’s prime urban centre and transport hub, Burgas (Bургас) provides easy access to the picture-postcard town of Nesebar to the north and Sozopol to the south. Bypassed by most tourists, the pedestrianized city centre, lined with smart boutiques, bars and cafés, is pleasant enough, though Burgas’s best features are the well-manicured Sea Gardens overlooking the beach, and its rusting pier at the eastern end of town.
