What travellers are saying
- We spent a week-end in Burgas, which is the 4th largest city in the country. We walked in the Sea Garden and saw lots of statues, flowers, palm trees and some fountains. It’s a relaxing place with some bars or restaurants where we sat for a while and had a drink.Written 10 November 2023

- Strandja is actually not just a mountain, but a huge nature park. It is so vast, that you only can see a glimpse of it on a one day trip.
We did a day trip to the park from Burgas. First off, you need a car and preferably a SUV because of the bumpy roads.
The road (9, E87) from Burgas from Malko Tarnovo is good. We came back through the Gramatikovo-Tsarevo-Sozopol route (road 99). The worst section of the road was from Malko Tarnovo to Gramatikovo. From there to Tsarevo it was a bit better.
Even if you are not into geocaching, I suggest that you should create an account and look for some geocaches. The coordinates to caches will lead you to many interesting places. For example the waterfall north of Malko Tarnovo, in Stoilovo. We also visited the Thracian tombs west from Malko Tarnovo. The highlight was climbing up to Golyamo Gradishte peak (710 m), which is the highest peak in Strandja and offers amazing views. On the way to the peak you'll see also some interesting caves.
Mishkova Niva is something worth to see also, and a new, good road leads right to the ruins. We also visited some small villages like Brahslyan. The all-but abandoned village of Slivarovo would also have been interesting, but we didn't have the courage to drive there because of the very poor road.
A great way to spend a day, or even a couple. But do remember to take your passport with you. The Border Police pulled us over and wanted to see our passports. But they were really polite and spoke good English.Written 19 October 2019

- Very nice experience for birds watching, a very nice guide who explained and showed us different types of birds - including nesting habits, male-female differences. You can also enjoy a nice walk to see the birds closely. Entrance fee only 6BGNWritten 18 June 2023
- It’s an intersting compass in the center of the city. We saw it by chance, because it’s on the ground of the pedestrian zone. It’s worth to stop and take a photoWritten 10 November 2023
- Wonderful museum and dig site from Roman Empire. Visit the museum first with some lovely artifact from the dig site next door! Well displayed and staff was helpful with more information. After you visit the museum, walk outside to view more displays and then go on to the dig site. They are still working on this site and some areas were covered over with tarps, but a lot was visible from above the site. There are map boards in multiple areas of the dig. They will be excavating this find for decades to come!Written 31 August 2020
- It is the oldest church in the city. The building was built in 1853. It has been rebuilt several times in its history. In the 17th century, there was a small Armenian temple on this site, as can be found from the memorial tablet. The architecture of the building is quite concise, but interesting. The interior decoration does not stand out in any special way.Written 4 May 2023
- We were just wandering in the center and saw this interesting sculptore. It’s an old object in a modern setting. It’s an interactive sculptore, so we tried it. If you are nearby, it’s worth to stop and have a look at it, but not a must-see site.Written 10 November 2023
- It shows different tensions from cultures and how wonderfull black sea area is and was for multiple tribes.Written 10 July 2019
- We travelled to Bulgaria from the UK as a family with 2 boys aged 12 and 8. We got a taxi here from Nessebar which cost 70 lev. This is an authentic Bulgarian experience with few tourists which we loved. In fact our hotel reception had little knowledge of the place. It cost us 5 lev entrance to bathe and float in the pink lake and subsequently cover ourselves in mud. There are showers available after for a small cost and a cafe serving snacks and drinks. All in all this was a fantastic holiday experience that I would recommend to others. Definitely a few hours well spent.Written 27 August 2022
- This Cathedral is not very old, but it’s an impressive building in the centre. It’s the most famous church in the city. Our apartment was nearby so we could visit it easily and saw it in the evening, too. It’s nicely decorated inside, we liked it.Written 10 November 2023
- The fairground can be found towards the middle of the park and has lots of things for the kids to do although the emphasis is definitely on the younger element.
There are bars and cafes which will also entertain the adults in the group.
To access the fairground head up the main street opposite the new bus terminus, turn left after the Hotel Bulgaria and head as far as you can until you reach the park. This is the very bottom of the park. The fairground itself is approx. a half mile north.
The park itself is a great place to escape the heat so take a picnic and make a day of it.Written 12 June 2016
- This Orthodox church is filled with ancient icons and beautiful frescoes. It was more decorated and elaborate with color and light everywhere. Very peaceful place to walk around looking at the silver and gold plated paintings. Really a worthwhile stop along the trail of churches in the historic city.Written 8 May 2016
