District Bourgas

Burgas Region is one of the most developed regions in Bulgaria. It is situated in the southeastern part of the country and is the second biggest after Sofia Region. It is bounded by the regions of Varna, Shumen, Sliven and Yambol; the eastern and southern boundaries to the Black Sea and Turkey coincide with the national borders.
The region is widely known for its vine-growing and wine production traditions. The wines of Sungurlare are very famous. They are produced of the following grape varieties: Misket, Muskat Ottonel, Chardonnay, Riesling, Ugni Blanc – for white wine, and Cabernet, Merlot, Pamid – for red wine.
Map of District BourgasThe Black Sea coastal areas and beaches with fine golden sand together with the thermal mineral springs provide favorable conditions for relaxation and recreation and for the development of balneological and sea tourism. The dense riparian forests with overgrowth along the rivers of Ropotamo and Veleka, the beauty of the rivers of Dyavolska and Fakiiska, the diverse wildlife in the Strandzha and Sakar Mountains and the nature reserves are a prerequisite for the development of ecotourism and hunting. Apart from the Silkosia, the oldest reserve in Bulgaria (1933), here one can visit the Ropotamo and Strandzha National Parks, the Duni (the Dunes) and Vodnite Lilii (the White Lilies) reserves, the fiords and the seals cave on Maslen Nos Cape and other sites.
To the north and south of Burgas one can visit numerous holiday complexes and villages which offer wonderful conditions for vacation and relaxation – Pomorie, Nesebar, Sunny Beach (Slanchev Bryag), Duni, Sozopol, Primorsko, Tzarevo, Ahtopol. All of them are connected by a panoramic seaside road. Rezovo, the southernmost Black Sea village belongs to the region too.
Archeological, architectural and historic monuments in the region are favorable for development of cultural tourism. The Old Nesebar is a unique monument of culture and is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. In the Strandzha Mountains can be seen some of the most ancient structures made by humans – the dolmens. Thracian mounds, ancient Greek poleis, remains of ancient and medieval fortresses have been found here. One can immerse in the unique atmosphere created by the seaside houses from the National Revival period in Nesebar and Sozopol and the preserved samples of the Strandzha house in the villages of Fakia, Brashlyan, Bulgari, Kosti, Brodilovo, etc. The region still preserves in their purest form the fire-dances on live coals, which are performed on the holidays of the Saints Constantine and Helena. After the Liberation in 1878 the southern parts of the region (the Strandzha region) remained within the boundaries of Turkey until 1913 when the area was returned to Bulgaria.
