Burgas is a unique place for every fan of nature and birds. Burgas is the only city not only in Bulgaria but also in Europe, within which there is a nature reserve and so many birds.
Burgas is surrounded by water - to the east is the Black Sea, and to the west of the coast are three different lakes - Burgas, Atanasovsko and Mandrensko. They form the largest complex of coastal lakes in Bulgaria and have been declared for protected areas and Natura 2000 sites. They are characterized by considerable natural resources and exceptional biodiversity. 340 of all 430 bird species listed in the country are found in the lakes, making them an attractive place for fans of ornithology. Burgas lakes have been declared for Ramsar sites*.
Recently, wetlands seem to have an increasing impact on education, various inspirations, aesthetic value and social relationships - decor for photos, videos, fashion sessions, art installations and workshops, festivals and events.
Lakes and birds have become a trademark of Burgas - a perfect combination that represents the best city to live not only for people but also for birds.
* The Convention on Wetlands, called the Ramsar Convention, is the intergovernmental treaty that provides the framework for the conservation and wise use of wetlands and their resources.
