The Sea Garden is the largest and best known public park in Bulgarian port city of Burgas. It is located along the city’s coast on the Black Sea and it is an important tourist attraction and a national monument of landscape architecture on the Balkans.
The protected reserve “Poda” is a preferred visiting place for many Bulgarian and foreign tourists, who enjoy the unique Bulgarian nature. The area is a unique nature territory, hosting a huge biological diversity – hundreds of plant, bird, fish, amphibian, reptile and mammal species. It is only 1 sq. km.
“Lake” Park is the natural extension of the Sea Garden and is one of the preferable places for relaxation in the city. It is only 150 metres from the sea. The freshness of the greeneries makes it suitable for walking, biking or jogging both for children and adults.

The “Phoros” area is known for a memorable battle in the history of the Second Bulgarian State.
