We are a Danish couple, who have lived and worked in Bulgaria, but we are now back in Denmark. We fell so much in love with Bulgaria, but especially Primorsko at the Black Sea, which we believe represents everything that is worth experiencing in Bulgaria. Beautiful scenery just outside your door, sunshine, the Black Sea’s best beach, sun-ripened fruits and vegetables, the original Bulgaria encountered locals, good local wine, life and holiday spirit without coming close to what one reads about in the newspaper on drunken trips to Sunny Beach. In spite of that you will not be bored in Primorsko.
According to Politiken’s travel guide, the best beach in Bulgaria is the beach of Primorsko.
Primorsko is a quiet neighborhood within a stone’s throw from the Black Sea (10 minutes walk from the center of the town). The town is a delightful maze of small shops, booths, and cafes. Since the town is small, everything is within walking distance.
A children-friendly town with a newly built indoor water complex.
The building in which the three apartments at Treti Mart Str. are located consists of 12 apartments and has four floors.
The fourth apartment is a part the five star hotel resort “Grand Hotel Primorsko” nearby the sea.
Primorsko is out of season a small fishing village with 3500 inhabitants 60 km south of Burgas and 60 km north of the Turkey border. It has always been popular for the Bulgarians to hold pioneer camps here in the summertime, also in the past. So several hundred thousand Bulgarians have stayed in Primorsko at least once in their lifetime.
Primorsko is ideal for family holidays. You can stay the whole day on the wide sandy beach where there is room for ball games, play and places where you can grab a refreshment.
You can go to the aqua park that lie within walking distance from downtown and the beach. A stroll through town is also interesting for both children and adults. On the tour through the city crossing many pancake stalls as you must almost be tempted and sit at sidewalk tables and enjoy the pancakes and the street life.
Street life is colorful and it’s exciting for both children and adults to explore. Many of the stalls that are crossed on the journey through the city offers more than edible, some are obviously junk, but there are also things that we would never encounter at home. Something will mach our grandmother’s time, it can be simple things like soap bubbles, a weight, to be photographed in various costumes, juggling balls etc.
On the way home from town it is a must to visit a fruit and vegetable stall and buy fresh sun-ripened tomatoes, grapes, stunning cherry, well, you name it. Children and grandchildren should learn the taste of the real sun-ripened tomatoes! And the adults can take a few bottles of the local wine to take home.
