The SAGE International Encyclopedia of Travel and Tourism: Burgas, Bulgaria

Research output: Contribution to Book/ReportChapterpeer-review


Burgas (also written as Bourgas) is one of the largest cities in Bulgaria, located on the southern part of the Black Sea coastline. The city serves as a gateway to many summer resorts such as Sunny Beach, Nessebar, and Pomorie but is rarely considered a tourism destination in its own right. However, during the last few years, tourism has become a priority for destination development, and a number of new attractions have emerged. The infrastructure has been developed; the airport and seaport have been expanded with new terminals; and the number of cultural events, festivals, and visitor attractions has grown.
