Don’t forget to walk under this arch to receive health and prosperity in the future. Both sides of the arch are beautiful and getting pictures is easy as everyone else just passes it by.

Well..it really depends what kind of person are you. Yes, the arch is beautiful, but that's all. Go there, make a picture, read the sign and go on with your plan :)

Since St. Nicolas is considered to be the defender and patron of the city of Burgas, this arch is the place where on December 6 every year people of Burgas give him their respect.

Not easy to find because its only just been erected and you won't find any directions or signposts pointing the way. If you head up the main pedestrianised street across from the new bus terminus you'll find it approx. 100 metres down a side street...More

This is one landmark that is not hard to find and is worth stopping for several minutes to examine the workmanship and symbolism in the detail of the top of the arch. A place of pride for the locals.
