Raided by pirates and later used as an offshore prison camp for communists, the history of St. Anastasia Island belies its peaceful charm. Take a boat out from Burgas and delve into the dramatic past of Bulgaria's only inhabited island.
Explore a medieval monastery and its nearby museum to get a sense of the drama this tiny islet has witnessed over the centuries. Gaze wistfully across the Black Sea waters like a homesick monk, and enjoy a fresh-air picnic with a view!
