Modern Burgas is the city of parks and festivals. The largest,
Nowadays Sozopol, a resort town near Burgas, bears little resemblance to a thriving Greek metropolis, only archeological excavations of ancient Apollonia remind of its past mightiness.
As Nessebar, Sozopol is a sort of city-museum under the open sky. Along small back alleys near their homes old women sit, knitting lace and selling fig jam – such nice scenes from leisurely city life give it a special charm.
All Bulgarian resort towns have a unique feature - they are so comfortable and relaxing, that you wish to stay here longer. Sitting in a cozy restaurant or on a park bench enjoying the view of lush greenery and elegant sculptures you completely forget about the worries. Pleasant memories of these places remain for a lifetime.
