Less Noise in Bulgaria's Summer Resorts

Anyone who's ever been on a vacation along Bulgaria’s coastline knows that the resorts are incredibly noisy during the late hours. While the active nightlife is one of the major draws for young tourists, some people don’t like it as much. One of those people is Valeri Simeonov, the leader of the United Patriots parliamentary group. He said: “The noise anarchy and terror must stop!” and proposed harsher punishments and more frequent checkups.

The remarks were made during a meeting of the tourist branch in Bulgaria. Nightclub and disco owners said that this will kill their business and push away younger visitors, who make up 25% of all tourists on Bulgaria’s coastline. The official laws concerning noise pollution put a tight restriction on the noise levels outside closed doors between 11pm and 7am. These laws will be enforced more strictly. Previously, health inspectors were responsible for that enforcement, but now the police will also take part.

It's an interesting situation, as the nightlife is a major draw to Bulgaria’s resort, but the loud music makes it unpleasant for other types of tourists. It's unlikely that a 60-year-old German tourist would appreciate listening to trashy pop music at 5 o’clock in the morning. In any case, Bulgaria is trying to clean up its act when it comes to summer resorts by tightening regulations. The tightening of regulations also lead to the demolition of many buildings on Sunny Beach, which is the country’s most famous resort.
