Bulgaria sea coast

Bulgaria’s Black Sea Coast Is Deliciously Quiet Now But Not For Everyone – Novinite.com

At the beginning of June this year, we can really enjoy the black sea coast without crowds of tourists, without aggressive pop-folk music, without junk on the beach. But for people who make a living from tourism, the time and place are not at all idyllic, writes Deutsche Welle.

Because the usual Russian vacationers are not coming this year. Several “Russian hotels” and small tourist complexes are deserted – kitschy gypsum angels, Greek goddesses, shepherds and lions, which usually “decorate” the landscape of the resort town, now look abandoned and sad.

In other years, at this time of the year, the hotels were already filling up. This summer, however, you will only see a stray car with Ukrainian registration, there is no work for taxi drivers, and shops with beach accessories are waiting for customers in vain.

People in the industry fear that the second consecutive bad tourist season on Bulgaria black sea coast will ruin hundreds of small businesses. In 2020, the season was short, and foreign tourists – fewer than usual. This year, the picture is similar. The active tourist season in Bulgaria black sea coast is short and as a small hotelier or restaurateur you need a lot of imagination, energy and luck to succeed in 3-4 months in maintaining a decent level, retaining staff and recovering your investments.

Yet at a nearby famous hotel complex, rumored to be controlled by a large corporate group with a dubious reputation, everything seems to be in pristine condition: the alleys are clean and welcoming, the lush greenery is well maintained, the shop windows of hotels are polite, restaurants and cafes have many customers – mainly Bulgarians.

In another famous tourist center, most hotels are not even open and the large beach is quite deserted. The water is crystal clear, the sand – exceptionally clean, no empty beer bottles and plastic bags strewn along the beach. The food in the restaurant next door is excellent, but this may be because the restaurant is running on the first day and everything is quite fresh. Not far away are incredibly beautiful fields with blooming poppies and lavender, strawberries and cherries are already on the market.

In some places the Bulgarians black sea coast is truly beautiful and attractive – especially to those who love him sentimentally. Now you can really enjoy it in all its glory. It’s clean and quiet, the beaches aren’t crowded, and the restaurant owners are happy to see the few customers. However, those who have to take advantage of a short tourist season to survive the rest of the year hardly benefit from this idyllic picture.
