Burgas

Municipality of Burgas is situated in the south eastern region of Bulgaria on the Black Sea seaside and has a territory of about 48 200 hectare. Bourgas is the fourth largest city in Bulgaria. The municipality includes the City of Burgas and other 14 small villages. The City of Bourgas consists of 8 housing regions with more than 226 000 inhabitants. Unemployment in the area is very low at 1.4%.The main issues facing the City and Municipality are the continuing urban spread and increases in population through inward migration from other parts of the country and beyond as the economy increases and develops. The geographic spread is not contained other than by the sea on the east side and a few lakes, therefore urban spread in terms of residential and commercial activities is foreseen to continue.
