Област Бургас

Oblast Burgas - Burgas Province

The Област Бургас (Burgas Province) is a province in southeastern Bulgaria, including the southern half of the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast. Named after its capital and industrial center Burgas city. The region has extensive natural resources of national importance especially coal and minerals, fertile soils for agriculture, a highly skilled workforce in all economic sectors, and Bulgaria's largest tourism and recreation centres on the Black Sea. However, it covers mostly coastal plains and the geology and the relief are not suitable for karst and the development of caves. As a result the only subterranean sites of interest are Thrakian tombs.
