Burgas is a city on Bulgaria s Black Sea coast. At its heart, the Church of Saint Cyril and Methodius is known for striking stained-glass windows over its main entrance. Nearby, the Ethnographic Museum explores Bulgarian folk culture, with colorful costumes and everyday items. Along Burgas Bay is the Sea Garden, with broad promenades, performances at its Summer Theatre and a viewing platform at the end of its pier. It is 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 and bars.

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 parks 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
If you are from western or northern Europe you might be unfamiliar with the Bulgarian cultural traditions so this is a handy way to get up to speed. The museum is housed in a stately home built for the local 19th-century bigwig Dimitar Todorov Brakalov. The original first floor interior has been preserved, so you can get an idea of local design, as well as upmarket womenâ€™s fashion thanks to a textiles exhibit. Upstairs are large displays of traditional costumes from every ethnographic group to have populated the region around Burgas, with daily clothing alongside the costumes that were worn for rituals and religious events.
Set on the western shore of Lake Mandrensko is the village of Deabelt, which has Thracian origins but flourished in Roman times. For amateur historians the Deultum excavation site is the big story here. Deultum was a free Roman colony founded in the 1st century by retired legionaries, and over time it became one of the richest towns in the Balkan region, especially after the capital switched from Rome to Constantinople. The most arresting of these ruins are the remnants of the bathing complex, with a large section of the intricate hypocaust heating system visible.
There is a stark beauty to Burgas pier, which stretches from the tree-lined edge of the Sea Gardens out into the Black Sea for almost 300 metres. It might be Burgas most recognisable structure, not least because of its distinctive T-shape. Locals and holidaymakers of all ages will come to take romantic walks and look back at the view of the coast from the elevated viewing platform at one end. In summer fishermen will cast their lines over the railings and brave young lads will jump off into the water several metres below.
In July and August you can catch a boat from Mosta to this island a few kilometes southeast of the city. This is Bulgaria s largest inhabited island, which isnâ€™t saying a lot as St. Anastasia is very small: There are only a handful of buildings here including a restaurant, museum , guesthouses and a lighthouse. For much of the 20th century St. Anastasia was an offshore prison, but there had been a convent here since medieval times. This is a place to get a change of airs and a little seclusion: You can even rent a room at one the guesthouses to stay overnight..
Nessebar is Located just 20 miles north along the coast is a UNESCO-listed town that pulls together all the fun of the seaside with sites of immense historical wealth. On the cobblestone streets of old Nessebar you ll be confronted by a beautiful old church at almost every turn. The most valuable here go back to the 500s: St. Sofia has lain in ruin since the 1700s, but it is easy to make out the nave and the Byzantine arches of the walls are mostly intact. If you have the energy there are at least ten other ancient and medieval churches to seek out, but you can also see the city fortifications and the emblematic windmill that marks the Nesebar s entrance.
