For most visitors, the port city of Burgas (sometimes written as ‘Bourgas’) is no more than a transit point for the more obviously appealing resorts and historic towns further up and down the coast. If you do decide to stop over, you’ll find a lively, well-kept city with a neat, pedestrianised centre, a long, uncrowded beach, a gorgeous seafront park, and some interesting museums. A clutch of reasonably priced hotels, as well as some of the best restaurants in this part of the country, makes it a practical base for exploring the southern coast, too.
Ethno Restaurant is Greek seafood restaurant located along the vibrant Alexandrovska Boulevard. With a varied menu of fish, salads, soups, and grilled meats, Ethno’s menu reads like one from a modern taverna in Athens. The best dishes of the house, however, are the grilled seafood and meat platters. There is no shortage of fresh seafood in Burgas, so you’ll be wise to take advantage of that here. The restaurant’s central location, beautiful décor, and scrumptious menu make it one of our favorites in Burgas. Average price per main dish is 15 – 25 BGN.
For traditional Bulgarian fare, head to the Burgas’s beautiful seaside park to Vodenitsata “the Windmill,” Restaurant. If the wood siding and terracotta roof tiles don’t charm you, then maybe the delicious food will. We recommend making a reservation and coming for dinner on a night when there’s live music. Sit inside to avoid the mosquitoes and heat, and enjoy the vibrant, casual atmosphere. Order a traditional pork sac (pronounced sach) and house wine. Restoran Vodenitsata is an inexpensive and family-friendly dining option.
Among the many great things about Bulgarian coastal cities are their giant seafront parks, where amusements, sports facilities, gardens and cultural sites all come together in one attraction.
You’ll find yourself returning over and over to the Sea Garden during your stay, simply because so many of the city’s attractions are found here.
Within these 72,000 square metres are wooded parkland, elegant promenades with fountains, playgrounds, cafes, ice cream stands, an open air theatre, tennis courts – the choice of things to do just goes on and on, and in the summer evenings you can come down for a classical concert.
Here’s a waterfront park of a wilder variety: Poda is a wetland reserve just south of the city.
The low-lying setting around Burgas makes for large saline and freshwater lakes, and big swathes of marshland such as Poda, which is between the sea and Lake Mandrensko.
People come to catch a glimpse of the rich birdlife that is supported by the wetlands.
Despite the park’s relatively small area, some 265 bird species have been sighted at Poda, 46 of which nest here.
There are large colonies of all sorts of herons and egrets, as well as spoonbills and gloss ibises.
A further reminder of how Bulgaria is a nexus between cultures is this Armenian Orthodox church from the mid-19th century, listed as a Bulgarian cultural heritage monument.
Armenians are the country’s fifth-largest minority, although there are now fewer than 7,000 still living here.
If you peek inside you can see a poignant memorial to the 1915 genocide, and the church’s pointed dome and unembellished architecture is in keeping with the Armenian style.
Opposite the church is a typical Armenian cafe, so you can round off your visit with a typical cup of strong, syrupy coffee!
