Over 20 Bulgarian films have been shot in Burgas. Some of them – in emblematic places for the city. The route was outlined by Petya Rusinova from “Burgas Free Tour”:
“Our culminating stop is at the Sea Station, where we talk about” Dangerous Charm “on the coastal street and stop at several places to tell about the big names in Bulgarian cinema – Rusi Chanev, Georgi Dyulgerov. We won’t miss going to the house of Apostol Karamitev “, added Rusinova.
