Sand Sculptures Festival
A tourist attraction in Burgas
Whatever our mood is, we will always have a smile on our faces when we see a happy child’s face or something which provokes us to turn back to unforgettable childhood memories. And, as if we suddenly find ourselves in a different world, where time seems to have stopped and everything is so carefree, spontaneous and joyful. Such a small world has been opening its doors each summer, for 10 years now, in the Sea Garden of the town of Burgas. It is not ordinary or imaginary – it is absolutely real despite the fact that it is totally created of sand.
