Venue

Flag of Bulgaria Flag of European Union

Bulgaria is located in Southeastern Europe, in the northeast part of the Balkan Peninsula. It is an European, Balkan, Black Sea and Danube country. This geographical location places it on a crossroad between Europe, Asia and Africa. The country’s favorable climate and natural attractions provide the basis for the development of its 142 resorts, 26 of which are marine resorts, 56 — mountain resorts and 58 — balneological resorts, not including the numerous balneological and spa centers. There are international airports in Sofia, Plovdiv, Varna and Burgas. Direct charter flights are available to the Black Sea airports in Varna and Burgas during the summer season.

Elenite is a vacation complex, situated by the sea shore, in the southern slope of the easternmost Balkan Mountain. The resort is located in a beautiful bay in close proximity to Cape Emine, 4.5 kilometers from Sveti Vlas and 8.5 kilometers from Sunny Beach. The international airport of Burgas is only 40 km away from Elenite. The complex is designed so its exposition is entirely southern. It consists of villas and hotels, situated among the fresh greenery of the Balkan mountain and it offers its guests peace and luxury, combined with beautiful nature and fresh air.


Hotel Royal Castle is a design, five star hotel with stunning sea view, located in Elenite Holiday Village. Several restaurants, various bars, indoor and outdoor pools, gym and SPA center are available to the guests as well. The conference room has a capacity of 300 people and is equipped with air conditioning, sound system and multimedia projector.
