Sunny Beach (bulgarian. Słynczew Briag, ang. Sunny Beach), which is the largest and most popular resort in Bulgaria, stretches along the Black Sea coast, near the road connecting two large Bulgarian cities: Varna (on the north) and Burgas (on the south), a few kilometers north of the city of Nessebar.
During the holiday season, Sunny Beach becomes a place of residence for thousands of sun-hungry tourists, beach and mild Mediterranean climate.
A short history of Sunny Beach.
Construction of the resort began in 1958 years in place, where two old wells were located that supplied water to the nearby town of Nessebar in the Middle Ages.
Sunny Beach was built north of Nessebar (in practice you can say, that it is connected with it) and south of the resort town of Sveti Vlas.
The resort has quickly become the largest and most popular resort in Bulgaria and one of the most popular on the Balkan Peninsula, and is still dynamically developing.
Sunny Beach - conditions.
The Mediterranean climate prevailing on the Black Sea makes, that Sunny Beach is currently the favorite place of Russian holidays abroad, Germans, Brits or Scandinavians. Recently, more and more Czechs are starting to go on holiday to Sunny Beach, Poles and Slovaks.
Sunny Beach is not only due to the favorable sunny climate, but also lower prices than in resorts on the Mediterranean Sea.
To the south of the resort, there is the Stara Planina mountain range. The refreshing mix of sea and mountain air is especially beneficial for people with respiratory problems.
Sunny Beach is 8 kilometers wide beach, 30-60 meters wide, with golden sand and clean, calm sea. In the season (June September) water temperature does not drop below 20 degrees.
Sunny Beach is one of the few places on the Black Sea, where you can still admire natural dunes with rare plant species.
