Re: Where is the clubs and bars located?
I assume yoou mean the Iberostar in Sunny Beach?? If so you'll find plenty of bars and clubs along the main drag. Nesebar is a different town and is more restaurant orientated rather than bars and clubs (although I think there are some in the new town). Burgas itself is the main city (if you are flying that's where the airport is) and has its own lively night life.
I;m not a club person but you could try visiting a few members pages here on VT regarding Sunny Beach, Nesebar and Burgas to get an overview of things to do, including nightlife.
Travel Tips for Burgas
Burgas Tourist Information Centre
Burgas's Tourist Information Centre is located at blvd Hristo Botev 46, in the underpass from the city centre to the Theatre and Opera House. Here multi-lingual staff can assist with pretty much any query including accommodation, public transport and things to do. There are the usual freebie maps and leaflets as well as items for sale.
The website is also very useful, with a nice panoramic virtual tour of the city. The office is also contactable by phone on 056 825772.
Having experienced the grime and pollution of Bulgaria's capital city and travelled across its inconsistently mired countryside it really is a pleasant surprise to find that places such as Bourgas do care about themselves and the world in general. Bourgas is a major port and industrial area and perhaps in the past it probably looked and smelled like one. The modern city however seems to have "cleaned up its act", as it were, and presents itself still as industrious, but in a clean and tidy, caring fashion.
Even the docks and their cranes are kempt and colourful, the goods sidings of the railway station neat and organised, the surrounding factories are no longer belching out industrial fumes. OK its not yet perfect but its certainly getting there and does have ambitions.
Here's a couple of interesting links:
Ropotamo River flows into the sea about 50 km South of Bourgas. It flows through the protected area called Arkutino. You can take a boat trip that will take you to the Black Sea trough the deep forest. You can see the rock formation called the'Lion's Head'.
There is a great beach right next to the river. It can be reached either by boat or after one-hour treck from the road. This explains why there are hardly any people there.
At Arkutino, for a small fee you can also see the water lillies.
The bus going to Primorsko stops at Arkutino, there may be minibuses going that way from Bourgas or Sozopol.
Former Communist Party/University Building
It was built in the 80's and it represents what I call the Socio-Realistic Style: imposing, white and shiny with a lot of marble/concrete, and somewhat angular and uglish. You can find such buildings (as well as a Russian Soldier/Army monument) in every Bulgarian town. In Burgas those two are easy to find, there are right next to each other :) The Communist Party building housed the Private University after the changes, and now, the Court. And the marble pavement 'houses' the local skating community :)
The Spirit of Burgas
Burgas is the fourth biggest city of Bulgaria with some 200 000 inhabitants. It is the second biggest one on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast and is picturesquely situated on the Burgas valey and Burgas Bay. It is surrounded by three liman lakes - Atanasovsko, Burgasko and Vaya.
Compared to other towns in Bulgaria, Burgas is relatively new. It was established in the 17th century. In Ancient times, there was small Greek settlement here, called Pyrgos, Greek for tower. It was built as a point of military defence and observation for colonists from Apolonia (today's Sozopol) against their enemies - the people of Messembria (today's Nessebar). Besides Pyrgos, the present-day city expands over the area of three other ancient settlements: Castrition, Skafida and Rossokastron.
In the Middle Ages, a small fortress called Pyrgos was erected on the place and was probably used as a watchtower. It was only in the 17th century that a settlement named Ahelo-Pirgas grew in the modern area of the city. It was later renamed to Bourgas.
After the liberation from the Ottoman Turks in 1878, Burgas became an important industrial and trade center in the whole country. It has the biggest harbour in Bulgaria and its airport serves all the resorts on the Southern Bulgarian Black Sea coast.
Among Bulgarians, the city has the image of industrial and a bit dirty place unlike its sunny, tourist-wise and friendly people. Burgas gave Bulgaria a multitude of artists in any genre. Summer is ideal to visit Burgas not only of the sea but also because of the music festivals, taking place there.
