The second largest city on the Bulgarian black sea coast, Burgas is an important cultural, tourist and industrial center in the beautiful Burgas Province.

The Sea Garden, known locally as Morska Gradina, is one of the country's most-loved parks, and is considered a national monument of landscape architecture.

A great deal of forward thinking, planning, financial restraint and bravery goes in to making a move abroad, and the InterNations website is there to take some of this strain away. As well as the extensive international network of global minds, with forums, discussion groups and forum threads, there is also the Expat Magazine. The publication deals with pretty much every aspect of international living, whether you need assistance with finance, legal aid, or culture shock. Articles about performing key financial tasks, such as setting up a bank account when you arrive at your new home, how to go about getting a tax reimbursement (or check that you're eligible for one), and how you can get to grips with foreign exchange rates, all appear in the magazine. Some of the articles are even written by members of the platform who want to share their experiences with others around them and therefore make moving to Burgas or elsewhere much easier.
It might be that you've moved to Burgas in the hope of setting up your own business, you might be looking to take part in some voluntary work to boost your CV, or you might be on a work placement through your previous employer - whatever the reason, acclimatizing to work in a new country can be very difficult. InterNations has worked hard to build up a global network of expatriates so they have a platform to share their experiences, socialize and help one another out. The Expat Magazine is also part of the InterNations site, and has articles written by the in-house team about working in a new country and other expatriation-related topics. The articles for example explain in detail how to learn about business etiquette while abroad, what to do if you're looking for voluntary work, the kinds of salary you can expect, and what visas or permits you might need to continue work. Additionally, forum posts from other like-minded expatriates can help you find working in Burgas a breeze.
