Information about Primorsko

Print this pageDownload PDF

Primorsko is renowned for its graceful arcing ten-kilometer sandy beach, the longest and prettiest on the coast. The resort is a haven for youth and working Bulgarians who flock here in droves to avail themselves of the numerous trade union rest homes, hostels, student dorms and campgrounds. Under communism, Primorsko was the site of the Georgi Dimitrov International Youth Resort Center (Mezdunaroden Mladezhki Tsentur, or MMT) which annually attracted thousands of communist youth from around the world who, fittingly, camped out in huge communal tents. While the center of Primorsko is an overbuilt urbanlike sprawl, the MMT and nearby areas on the water are pleasant. If you happen to find cemeteries picturesque, there is an especially peaceful plot perched on the top of the bluff overlooking Primosko's beach. While the Communist ideology that was routinely celebrated here may be no more than a fading memory, the party-hard student atmosphere of yesteryear still prevails. There's a plethora of outdoor cafes, discos that thump around the clock, and inexpensive eateries such as the beachside Delfin Snack Bar (try the tasty midi pane [breaded deep fried mussels]). For the intrepid traveler curious to see how the current generation of Bulgarian youth is embracing capitalist excess, Primorsko is where it's happening. But if it's peace and quiet you're after, better look elsewhere.
