The largest and most popular Bulgarian resort, Sunny Beach, is situated on an 8 kilometer long stretch of dreamy beach, with more than 200 state of the art hotels, many water parks, spa centers and clubs. A small train connects the resort to Nesebar, a gorgeous ancient city at the foot of the Bulgarian Black sea.
