Sea Garden

Reviewed By mimkaBurgas - Burgas, Bulgaria

Burgas sea garden is very well kept by the municipality, areas are clean. There are many Fountains and green spaces. Of course the view is beautiful as the sea garden itself is a bit higher than the beach because of the denivelation, I.e. you can see the horizon from high perspective which is very nice.
It feels good to be there. There are not too many restaurants and cafes there.

This is just an average shopping mall. If you want to stroll through typical shops and maybe to buy something inexpensive - that's it. We walked right from the South bus station, but you can catch a city bus if you like.

Kilometre zero

Reviewed By Nak K

Well, Kilometre Zero is nothing spectacular. It's something like the Greenwich Meridian of Burgas. If you have kids, because I have a brother, then they might love it. My brother loves it. He's three and he steps on it with a photo pose every time we walk past. And knowing that this landmark is in the middle of the main pedestrian street, you can visit it for a quick photo while you are shopping!

While it doesn't compare to the marvelous Varna museum, this small place had some items, particularly the 1st century bronze carnival mask, which caught my eye. Worth spending half to one hour strolling through. Some information in English.

Armenian Church Saint Cross

Reviewed By ruthandvern - Wilton, California

This was one of the first Orthodox churches we visited, being an Armenian Orthodox felt very special along with the memorial to the victims of the 1915 Armenian Genocide standing just on the side of the church. Its simplicity is its strength. A feeling of perseverance permeates the small area. The altar area is beautiful.
