Burgas is not just a city of strong traditions, it is a city of progress and the future, said President Rumen Radev, addressing the coastal city's residents on the occasion of St. Nicholas Day, which is their city's holiday.
Bulgaria's First Lady, Desislava Radeva, was born in Burgas as well.
Burgas showed how a municipality can interact in the best possible way with the State, public organizations, businesses and citizens, said the President, who is an official guest at the concert and Christmas tree lighting ceremony in the city's central square.
Radev noted that the sectors of heavy industry, transport and information technologies are working equally well in Burgas.
In his speech, the head of State added that Burgas has become not only an example, but is setting standards in healthcare, education, green policies, innovative solutions, care for the elderly, the young and people with special needs.
"It has been scientifically proven that the most beautiful and intelligent women hail from Burgas, but I might also add the most demanding, which is why the men of Burgas are always attracted to the sea," the President said.
Desislava Radeva, Burgas Regional Governor Maria Neykova and hundreds of local residents also attended the ceremony. The President wished all happy holidays, health, warmth and happiness.
