Today, on January 30, a meeting-discussion was held between the representatives of the tour operator’s business and the Municipality of Burgas at the hall of the “Writer’s House”. The event stood out with extremely high attendance and lasted more than two hours.
In her capacity as Deputy Mayor for Culture, Tourism and Sport, Ms. Diana Savateva presented an overview of the long-term vision of Burgas Municipality for the development of the tourism sector.

Expanding communication channels to promote the city and the region, create a common brand, offer hiking and trekking tours, Black Sea cuisine and wine tasting, common routes between natural landmarks throughout the region, which may include the Vaya, Atanasovsko, Mandra lakes, the Poda Ornithological Center and the Strandja Nature Park were among the most constructive proposals around which the attendees united.
