Traditionally, Burgas celebrates St. Nicholas Day with a rich program. After the solemn holy liturgy in honor of St. Nicholas, a prayer was held in memory of the fallen sailors and fishermen in the church of "St. Nicholas the Wonderworker" in the "Meden Rudnik" quarter of the city.

The festivities in Burgas began with a ritual of raising the national, the European and municipal flags on Atanas Sirekov Square. The culmination of the holiday in Burgas was marked by ship sirens that greeted the residents and guests of the city for the holiday.
