Bulgarian PM Roasts Popular Sea Resort's 'Cheapness'

Date: 25 Jun, 2011
Bulgaria's largest sea resort, Sunny Beach, looks too cheap, the country's Prime Minister Boyko Borisov has stated, comparing it to a "chicken coop".

"Sunny Beach should not look like a chicken coop with panties and socks being sold all over the place. This is not a resort and this does not look like Sunny Beach," the Prime Minister said Saturday.

Borisov noted that the potential solution of the conflict between the resort's hotel owners and the company managing Sunny Beach depends on whether "panties and panty-hoses" are removed from its streets.

On Tuesday, some 500 hotel and restaurant owners, taxi drivers and salespeople rallied in Sunny Beach against regulations set by the company managing it.

The protesters demanded the immediate resignations of the management of the shareholder company owning Sunny Beach, disgruntled over what they claim are illegitimate fees for services and access to local infrastructure.

The protest was triggered by the increased fees imposed by the management for access to the eastern area of the Sunny Beach resort.

Sunny Beach hotel owners also claimed they pay double fees for the construction of temporary trade facilities to both the municipality of the town of Nessebar and the company managing Sunny Beach.
