Abstract :
[en] Tourism is a booming economic sector. Tourism in Bulgaria has undergone intensive changes since its beginning in the late 19th century, but especially after the Second World War when it started to become a mass product for sunny beach tourism along the Black Sea coast. Since the early 1990s when Bulgarian tourism started to transform into a market oriented economy, the economic sector has changed again. Tourism suffered from out-dated, giant hotel complexes, ecological problems, inadequate quality of the hotels and gastronomy and poor investments as well as crime. But it still remains to be a mass product spatially concentrated along the Black Sea coast and seasonally concentrated during the summer months. Nowadays it develops new types of tourism products like cultural tourism, ecotourism, spa tourism, sport tourism, congress tourism or rural tourism.
