Bulgaria – The Perfect Chance To Visit The Unforgettable Sunny Beach Area

Travellers who are up for some new hot destinations should book a ticket to Bulgaria since this country is truly a hidden pearl. Located in the south-eastern part of Europe, Bulgaria is one of the fastest growing tourist markets on a global scale. They have everything – beautiful mountains with fantastic sky resorts and even more gorgeous coastline along the Black Sea with many great destinations.

Why Is It So Special?

Sunny Beach is a resort built a few decades ago on the coast of the legendary Black Sea. Its pleasant climate with hot days and refreshing nights over the summer make it a perfect place for a nice vacation. There is a boulevard along the sandy beach which is ideal for long walks before the sundown. The whole area is surrounded by fantastic nature, and you should not miss a chance to visit the protected area of Irakli with its dense forests that are campers’ heaven. Many nudists also love this area since it offers them a much-needed privacy.

The best way to reach the Sunny Beach is by plane, and once you arrive there, you can easily reach any destination with a taxi or a bus. The closest place you can visit is the calm and quiet town of Nessebar which is entirely different from the frenzy in the Sunny Beach. A bus ticket for the city of Nessebar will cost you around 50 cents, so be sure to visit it day after a wild night out in the resort.

Vivid History Of the Area

Sunny Beach and its area were attractive to various nations throughout the history. The ancient people of Thracians were the first to come here, and they were followed by the Greeks, then the Romans, the Byzantines and by the Bulgarians. But that was not the end because the imperial armies of Ottoman sultans soon conquered the area which was then under their rule for centuries. All of these people have left their marks on the region, and that is what attracts tourists to come to Sunny Beach.

There aren’t many localities in the world that have such cultural diversity in a relatively small area.

The main attractions are mostly located in the nearby town of Nessebar where you can see the famous  Basilica Saint Sofia that was erected in the 5th century on a small peninsula. Visiting the historical part of the city will give you a chance to see many ancient ruins and buildings such as the remnants of once impregnable fortifications that have protected the town from the invaders. You can also see the ruins of the Byzantine Terms from the 6th century as well as many other basilicas and small churches. And if you want to learn more about the past of the entire region, go to the Archaeological or the Ethnographic Museum in Nessebar. The Old Windmill is one of the town’s symbols as well as the Old Fountain that once parted the mosque and Turkish baths built during the Ottoman reign.

But Sunny Beach also has other attractions that have nothing to do with history. The most popular location, in particular among the young ones, is the incredible Action Aquapark located in western part of the resort. The more adventurous people will totally enjoy the visit and everything that this place has to offer.
