The sea! Together with the historical sites, the food and the mountains, the Bulgarian Black Sea coast leaves the strongest impression on visiting foreigners and in the memories of the Bulgarians themselves, when they are far from their homeland. With sand beaches and clear waters, with lively resorts and calm bars by the water, with hot sun and cool breezes the vacation on the seaside between Durankulak and Rezovo leaves deep imprint in the heart.
On its 354 km, the Bulgarian Black Sea coast has gathered an abundance of experiences, sites, pleasures. Varna and Burgas, the biggest Bulgarian maritime cities, are places of old and new architecture, wonderful sea gardens, exquisite restaurants and cultural events.
The big resorts like Golden Sands and Sunny Beach bring together guests from all over Europe – a numerous lively crowd which has come to have fun. The northern parts of the Bulgarian Black Sea are quieter, with the magnificent ruins of the Kaliakra Fortress, the picturesque Yaylata Plateau and the luxurious pleasure of golf courses and exclusive resorts.
To the south, it's funnier. Situated on the coast around Burgas and some of the best beaches in Bulgaria, are the ancient towns of Sozopol and Nesebar. Around them are scattered small and big seaside towns and villages, each with its own atmosphere. Sunny Beach is a place for parties, Lozenets – for quiet rest among the country's artistic elite, and Sinemorets is for the ones who want to escape the crowds.
