Seaside Park in Burgas - summer entertainment for tourists of all ages - free and paid

Where to go first if you come to Burgas? To Seaside Park, because it’s not only a green zone that separates the city from the beach, but also one of the main attractions of the city. There is entertainment for people of all ages and interests. But first, a bit of history.

The Seaside City Park is the former official name of the park, which the inhabitants of Burgas now simply call “Sea Garden”.

The history of the park began in 1910. Prior to this, quite a small area near 5-star Primoretz Hotel served as a green zone for city walks. The new manager of the landscape gardening, architect Georgy Duhtev, significantly expanded the boundaries of the park, laid alleys and planted trees and shrubs that were brought from Hungary, Italy, France, Syria and Lebanon. By 1924, the park was completed. Many trees in it have almost a century of history.

Today, the park occupies a huge area of ​​72 hectares and completely frames the city’s long beach area. The southern part of the park rests against the seaport of Burgas, the northern - goes up to the Atanasovsko Lake. The Sea Garden is the favorite place for citizens to relax at any time of the year, but in summer the park is especially crowded.


So, here’s what you can do in there in summer:

If you are 3-12 years old, we recommend you:

  • visit the amusement park in the central part - a ticket for each attraction is 1-1,5 euro

  • play on one of the equipped playgrounds - for free

  • jump in a small fountain near the rides - for free
