Ever since she was in the first year of school the Burgas poet started writing poems and essays. Her teachers could not believe her works could have been written by a seven-year-old and accused her mother of writing them for her. She was a teacher and started sending some of Petya’s poems to the children newspaper “Septemvriyche”. Her first works were published there even though the editors often doubted they were written by a child. For this… Thu, 31 Oct 2013 00:00:00 +0200 https://www.gotoburgas.com/en/places-to-go/view/219 Bust of Apostol Karamitev 53 https://www.gotoburgas.com/en/places-to-go/view/82 Apostol Karamatev is one of the most beloved and popular Bulgarian artists.

Incidentally or not, the two considered the best actors in the history of Bulgarian cinema - Apostol Karamatev and Georgi Kaloyanchev - were born in Burgas. The bust of Apostol Karamatev is located in the heart of the symbol of Burgas - the Sea Garden.

All these men show us what the nation should mean to an ancient and worthy people such as ours – a kind of self-preservation feeling, of identity and belonging. These people were the ideologists behind the revival of the Bulgarian spirit – teachers, writers, clergymen, monks, revolutionaries, military… Mon, 30 Sep 2013 00:00:00 +0300 https://www.gotoburgas.com/en/places-to-go/view/78 Alley of the Bulgarian Cultural Figures 53 https://www.gotoburgas.com/en/places-to-go/view/227 The cultural figures of Bulgaria have always had a large, well-deserved spot-light in the spiritual life of Bulgaria and Burgas.

Russia’s role in the political and social life of Bulgaria after the Liberation was controversial; especially after the communist occupational forces of the Red Army. Despite this, we should not forget that the ordinary Russian soldiers who left their remains on Bulgarian soil for the freedom of a foreign nation had nothing to do with politics, imperial ambitions and geopolitical goals. That is why we will forever bow before… Mon, 30 Sep 2013 00:00:00 +0300 https://www.gotoburgas.com/en/places-to-go/view/99 The Pantheon 53 https://www.gotoburgas.com/en/places-to-go/view/101 The Pantheon in the Seaside Park is one of the symbolic monuments of Burgas.

The sculptor Valentin Starchev designed the monument and the construction was planned by architect Vladimir Milkov. Today the Pantheon is mostly known as a meeting place and an assembly point for most graduates during the… Mon, 30 Sep 2013 00:00:00 +0300 https://www.gotoburgas.com/en/places-to-go/view/101 Monument of the Russian Liberators 53 https://www.gotoburgas.com/en/places-to-go/view/100 On this place on 6 February 1878 the residents of Burgas met the “Flying Squad” of Colonel Lermontov (1838-1906) with “bread and salt”.

All of them are one of the many prides of Bulgaria, part of the Bulgarian army which has always amazed with its bravery, courage and great victories. These are the people who are not in the textbooks but whose unknown deeds are in the foundation of Bulgarian spirit and national esteem. The monument of the Unknown Soldier was placed in 1934 in front of the building of the 24th… Mon, 30 Sep 2013 00:00:00 +0300 https://www.gotoburgas.com/en/places-to-go/view/98 Bas-relief of Kodzhakafaliyata 53 https://www.gotoburgas.com/en/places-to-go/view/80 Alexander Georgiev - Kodzhakafaliata is the largest donor to the city of Burgas, called by many "the father of Burgas".
