Burgas is one of the largest cities in Bulgaria and one of the cultural and tourist centers of the country. Unfortunately, tourists rarely get to see the city, because most of the tour operators organise a direct transfer from Burgas airport to the seaside resorts.
However, if you are travelling on your own and have some time – Burgas has some great places that you might want to check out.
Since we didn’t have much time to spend in the city and didn’t want to waste it on random places, we asked our local friends to take us to the best lounge bar in Burgas. The weather was beautiful enough to sit outside, but a bit too cold to stay directly on the beach, so we went to a place called Kashmir Coffee Bar.
The place is nicely decorated and pretty big, with lots of tables on the outside terrace. The drink selection is quite nice, and combines the usual drinks, like “Strawberry Mojito”, but also some quite unusual ones, like the “Lynchburg Lemonade” with Jack Daniels! The cocktail tastes so good, that you only realise that there’s alcohol inside during your second drink, because you’ve finished your first one way too fast. By the way, even though Kashmir is a bar, they also have a kitchen working till midnight, and lots of tasty food on the menu. We even discovered a mysterious snack called “Breaded Olives”, but unfortunately we didn’t get a chance to order it, so if one day you are in Kashmir and try it – let us know what it is!
The music in Kashmir was good, people were dressed up and pretty and everybody seemed to enjoy their time. One night probably isn’t enough to make any conclusions, but Kashmir Coffee Bar seemed like a very nice place to hang out and enjoy the beautiful summer in Burgas!
