Burgas is the fourth largest city in Bulgaria. It is a major economic, administrative, and cultural centre and a key logistics and transport hub. Situated on the Black Sea, in the South-Eastern part of the country, Burgas has 210,000 inhabitants and boasts an exceptional biodiversity. The city encourages entrepreneurship and is home to several universities. Burgas is a fast developing city with increasing potentials and needs. The Orient/East-Med corridor axis means the city is a major and growing logistics point in the country for sea, air, rail and road.
The planned smart parking system and the introduction of e-mobility solutions will greatly benefit the city’s growth. Burgas encourages digital entrepreneurship through its business friendly strategies. The city faces recurrent environmental and sustainability challenges of flood risk management. The city’s key priorities include: transport (ITMS, electric vehicles, data management); energy efficiency (smart management of urban areas, including street lighting, waste management, rainwater re-use, flood management); integrated infrastructure (waste, water, traffic etc); and citizen participation.
