Historically rich – the city of Bourgas
Bourgas is the second largest city on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast. The area was formerly inhabited by Thracian tribes and in the Middle Ages a small fortress was built and called Pirgos. In the 17th century Bourgas took its present place and was named Achelo-Bourgas. The foundation walls of today's port were laid in the beginning of the 20th century in 1903. Bourgas has developed into an important commercial, industrial and cultural centre for the Balkans over the course of time, but there is still very much a pride in history and museums, monuments and archeological sites can tell you a lot about culture in Bulgaria today.
