Few people know that Sarafovo was originally founded as a place where refugees from the Eastern Thrace found salvation. They began arriving in 1912. It is interesting to note that in Sarafovo, as well as along the entire coast, those refugees who did not have special skills and connections were settled. At that time, living near the sea was not valued as highly as it is now. 

In 1922, the village received the status of an independent settlement, and in 1929 it became officially known as Sarafovo – in honor of an engineer named Sarafov, who projected it. Thanks to him and his ideas, the streets were designed to have houses and cottages built, park areas arranged, and a school open. 

The village stayed independent until 1987, when it was joined to Burgas and became a city neighborhood. From this moment a small settlement began to turn into a unique place, perfect for both permanent residence and as a tourist destination. 

Today it is impossible to find a person in Bulgaria who has not heard of Sarafovo. For many residents of other Bulgarian regions, Ukraine, Russia, the countries of the European Union and England, the neighborhood has become a second home.
