This summer, tourists will be able to get information and book umbrellas and sunbeds on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast in real time. Concessionaires of sea beaches have prepared an application, which is expected to be operational before the official opening of the season on June 1. It can be downloaded via Google Play and App Store by anyone who wants to use it. At the moment, there is no other similar application that can inform users about the prices of beach chairs and umbrellas, we learn from an interview with Simeon Tsvetkov, chairman of the Association for the Development of Sea Beach Management Activities for the website bgtourism.bg.

The price rise of beach umbrellas this summer will not exceed 15%. The highest prices for umbrellas and sunbeds are expected to be around 5- 7 euros, which are comparable to those on nearby beaches on the Greek coast.
