Losenets beach resort is situated right between Kiten and Tsarevo. It is 60 kilometers south of Bourgas. This small paradise site is recently attracting many tourists who want to escape the big and nosy commercial resorts.
The village has a long and picturesque beach with two nearby situated campsites.
History: The village was founded in 1924 by romantic sea-lovers from the nearby inland Velika village. The settlement was first named 'Emberli' after a popular grape variety. Later, it was renamed into Losenets after the many vineyards around the village.
Fun and Sports: If you are on a vacation in Lozenets you can have a great fun. There is a surf school at the northern part of the beach. You can have the thrilling experience of riding the waves by surf kite and you definitely love it. You can also sail the sea on yacht like a real old sea-wolf.
Tourists can take a mountain bike excursion round Natural Park “Strandzha” or round the “Ropotamo” reserve. Visiting these sites you can feel the purity of the unspoiled countryside. There are places that have never been explored by humans and you might be the first one.
Taking a boat trip down the Ropotamo river or Veleka river is another unforgettable experience. The Ropotamo river is famous with its calm pure waters and the thick ('Longoz') forest along its banks, otherwise typical for tropical climates.
Lozenets is one of the places that you can spend your time lying on the golden sand beach and relaxing in cozy hotels. You can have fun surfing the waves or to take real adventure trip among the wild nature of the surrounding areas. Lozenets offers whatever you want - calm rest or extreme excitements and you will spend a lovely holiday there.
Flying into Bourgas, the local internation area which has a population of almost 200,000 people according to recent data, and is the second largest city at the Bulgarian Black Sea coast. It is also the fourth largest city in the country, following Sofia, Plovdiv and connecting Varna. It is situated in the farthest western part of the Bourgas Bay and 390km east of Sofia. Due to the low level of the coast in the area, three lagoon-lakes (the Atanassovo, Bourgas, and Mandren lakes) lie in the area surrounding the city.
History: Bourgas is a successor of the small Roman town of Deultum (later named Develt), founded by Emperor Vespasian as a military colony for veterans. Besides Deultum, the present-day city expands over the area of three other ancient settlements, i.e. Kastiacion, Skafida and Rossokastron. In the Middle Ages a small fortress called Pirgos was erected in the place and was most probably used as a watchtower. It was only in 17tn century that a town named Ahelo-Bourgas grew in the present-day area of the city. This, renamed into Bourgas, had only about 3,000 inhabitants at the time of the Liberation. Soon it became the centre of the Southern Black Sea coast, and a city of well developed industry and trade. A number of oil and chemical works producing more than 30 products were gradually built. Salt and iron are also mined here and traded far beyond the borders of the country. In 1903 the railway station in Bourgas started functioning as well, giving an additional boost to the city's expansion.
PLACES OF INTEREST:-
In the city: The District Museum of History, founded in 1925, is one of the most impressive tourist sights in the city. Today it houses an archaeological hall with a rich collection of items dating back to the old colonies along the Black Sea coast. The Ethnographic Museum is also of particular appeal to foreigners for its exhibitions of masks of koukeri, traditional costumes, ritual accessories, fabrics and embroidery. The museum is hosted in a house built in 1873 and later declared a cultural monument. The Museum of Nature and Science is another place of interest to visitors of the city. It contains more than 1,200 exhibits of insects and reptiles and more than 140 species of fish, plants growing in the district of Strandzha, protected and endemic species. Another such place is the Art Gallery, established in 1945 with halls exhibiting foreign and of Bulgarian artists' works, and icons painted by renowned Renaissance artists. Among the church buildings, one may wish to visit the St. St. Cyril and Methodius Cathedral, which raises near the marketplace. The cathedral is interesting for its marvelous frescos and wooden altar. Another impressive sight of Bourgas is the Armenian Church located close to Bulgaria Hotel. It was built in 1855 by the local Armenian minority supported by Bulgarians. Finally, a philharmonic hall, an opera house, a drama theatre and a puppet theater are hosted in beautiful buildings and function during the entire season.
Away from the busy centre of the city, the shady Sea Garden is a lovely place to stroll in hot summer days. The park is situated on a hill next to the coast, and is rich in flowers, trees and sculptures. Within the park there is a casino, a small zoo and an open-air theatre, which houses the annual International Folklore Festival, and where participants in the Golden Orpheus Pop-Festival perform. A beautiful forked staircase in verdure leads from the park down to the central beach of the city. The sand is a mixture of various alloys of magnetite, which is the reason for its dark colour. The city also has a northern beach, located close to the Izgrev Quarter, and adjacent to the city's salt-mines.
WITHIN THE LOZENETZ / BOURGAS AREA:
The lake of Pomorie is located 20 km north of Bourgas. The lake is surrounded by salt-mines and balneo-resorts. The Atanassovo Lake is to the north, too, between the airport and the city. It is 10 km long and once was a nestling site of many marsh and sea birds migrating from Gibraltar and the Bosphorus. Part of the lake is a natural reserve. There are sites for fishing, swimming and having a rest. The Bourgas Lake is a nestling site of pelicans, ibis, and herons. It offers many opportunities for having a rest as well. The Mandren Lake is 10 km south of the city and is also an important ornithological reserve with a large bird population in the summer. It is also appropriate for rowing tours and recreation.
The St. Anastassia Island is 3 nautical miles east of the city. The island has a well-preserved old church and was used for the exile of left-wing revolutionaries in 1923-1925, and anti-Fascists in 1943-1944. That is why the island was named Bolshevik for some years during communist times. The salt-mines of Bourgas may be also a sight of interest. They border the Bourgas Lake, and some of them even stretch to the Atanassovo Lake. Mineral water baths can be found 13km north-west of the city on the way to Aitos. The baths are built over the remains of an old Roman town called Aetos. The present-day baths were built in the 16th century during Ottoman rule and are still functioning. There is curing mud, a balneo-spa, a polyclinic, and a holiday house.
The village of Kraimorie (once named Kafka) is to the south of Bourgas (Northof Lozenetz) on the way to the old fortress of Pirgos. There is a nice beach near the village, as well as rest homes and private lodgings for holiday-makers. The Otmanli Park is 15 km away from Bourgas near the Choukalya caape. It comprises over 6,000 decares of thick forest and holds in a hunting area and bungalows for recreation.
Two famous Bulgarian resorts rich in history and architectural monuments are located close to Bourgas - Nessebar to the north and Sozopol to the south.
The Municipality of Nessebar consists of 3 towns (Nessebar, Obzor, St. Vlas) and 11 villages (Ravda, Giliovtsa, Orizare, Tunkovo, Kosharitsa, Banya, Panitsovo, Rakovsko, Priseltsi, Emona, Koznitsa) form the administrative unit municipality of Nessebar, with total area of 423 sq.km. and population of about 21,000.
The resorts are spread along the Black Sea coast in beautiful bays with wide sandy beaches and crystal clear sea water. The beaches are covered in fine golden sand, and the sea bottom dips slightly, slowly increasing in depth, which makes it fun and safe for children. This is one reason why holiday villages in the region are among the most popular destinations for family tourism.
The municipality of Nessebar is a world tourist destination, offering over 250,000 beds.
Numerous foreign tourists arrive every summer via the many coach lines connecting the municipality with all corners of the country; the railway station, or the two large airports – Varna and Bourgas, respectively 130 km
Location: 34 km south of Bourgas
General impressions: Very popular resort. Gets very busy during the summer. Good variety of restaurants, cafes, night clubs, 2 cinemas, shops, etc. In general the prices are lower than the international resorts (Albena, Golden Sands, Sunny beach, etc.), but higher than the resorts of Kiten, Varna, etc. Sozopol can be compared to Nessebar and Primorsko.
What to do: Everything is available here, but the most interesting thing is probably the old town with its interesting old-style wooden houses (some of them are national monuments).
Internet access: Widely available in the new town Internet cafes on the main street. The cheapest Internet cafe is the one in the building of Central Post office in the new town (BTC).
Transport to the resort: Many public buses go from Bourgas and the neighbor resorts to Sozopol. The easiest way is to catch a bus from the Bourgas central railway station or the bus station.
If you are coming by car from the city of Bourgas take the road going to the south and the resorts of Chernomorets, Primorsko, Kiten. The distance from Bourgas is 34 km and road is very good. Follow the signs to Sozopol. Reaching the town turn right for the New town and left for the Old town. The access by car to the old town is limited.
Located 34 km south of Bourgas on a slender rocky peninsula, Sozopol is one of the oldest Bulgarian coastal towns. Founded in 610 BC by Miletian Greeks. Today this charming place is a popular beach resort best known for its casual ambience, 2 sandy beaches, and distinctive 19th-century stone and wood houses, some 45 of which are national cultural monuments. While Sozopol is extremely busy during July and August, in the off-season it reverts back to a sleepy fishing village and is a favored stop of artists and writers.
A stroll along the old town's twisting, narrow cobblestone lanes reveals a host of National Revival-era houses, their stone foundations and overhanging upper stories of weathered wood topped by Mediterranean-style red-tiled roofs. Sea-facing Morski Skali and Milet streets are lined with small restaurants and cafes, ideal for taking in the views while digging into a plate of tasty locally-raised midi (mussels).
The small harbor is a good place to watch fishermen off-load their catches to waiting buyers from area restaurants.
There are 2 beaches in Sozopol, but the best beach the area is at Dyuni, an upscale Austrian-designed resort village complex, 6 km south of Sozopol. Past Dyuni, the coast road passes by the Arkutino swamp, a 62 hectare area of floating water lilies, irises and creeping liana vines. A few kilometers further south is the Ropotamo river nature reserve.
During summer, private vans and public buses provide regular transport service to and from Bourgas and the other resorts around. The small bus station is opposite the seaside park and there is a taxi stand in front. Private vans depart from a turn-around 50 meters west. Private "boat-taxis" go to Bourgas, Nessebar, Varna, or practically anywhere.
From Sofia there are many bus companies offering regular comfortable coaches to Sozopol, cost around 15 $ return.
