Burgas is the proud host of a European Sailing Championship
Sarafovo residential district is an attractive area, which develops intensively its capacities and potential. The immediate contact with the sea shore gives an excellent perspective to all young families having chosen to live here, to inhabit comfortable dwellings, to be a part of a well-developed infrastructure in close proximity to large populated areas.
The initiative in this massive change for the development and urbanization of the area was taken by construction and investment company Atlantis Bulgaria Holding.
Opportunities for life by the sea
Sarafovo has an unique location, preserved from the mass urbanization of Burgas, located on the very sea shore. Sarafovo South is an entirely new residential area, with a different way of life, which guarantees comfort and safety to its residents. The modern and stylish apartment buildings are located in the midst of the rich vegetation, recreation areas and children's playgrounds. The area is a new opportunity for all young families, who wish to live and develop in the area, as it combines all components for a complete life close to the nature in itself. All this opens new horizons for young people in Bulgaria. And yet they are the most important for the future development and prosperity, which they will bring to our town. It is just the talent and success of our children which made Burgas a host of:
