It is the oldest church in the city. The building was built in 1853. It has been rebuilt several times in its history. In the 17th century, there was a small Armenian temple on this site, as can be found from the memorial tablet. The architecture of the building is quite concise, but interesting. The interior decoration does not stand out in any special way.

I was born and raised in Burgas although I no longer live here. Being half Armenian and knowing the plight of the community that built it I am closely related to this church. But from the point of view of a tourist, not sure it would be of great interest, unless you are Armenian. Orthodox in general is not glamarous to outsiders.

I enjoyed partaking at last Sunday mass, together with 6-8 locals and the armenian priest and his helper.
It reminded me of a service in Batumi some years ago, the difference being that this beautiful and old church had air-conditioning.

Burgas has had an Armenian presence for at east five centuries and this church dates back to 1673. It also has a monument to the 1915 Armenian genocide. Very moving.

The first Armenian Church I've visited, unfortunately, it was only possible to see it from outside, but it's intrigued, if you are into digging about history and religion, this one is definitively another interesting church to see, hopefully, the next one I see, I'll be able to have full access.

This was one of the first Orthodox churches we visited, being an Armenian Orthodox felt very special along with the memorial to the victims of the 1915 Armenian Genocide standing just on the side of the church. Its simplicity is its strength. A feeling of perseverance permeates the small area. The altar area is beautiful.

This was a real surprise.My wife is Bulgarian orthodox and we went into the building out of curiosity and did not know that it was an Armenian church. It was very simply and beautifully decorated inside with a distinctive style. It is in the old town close to the main square and worth fifteen minutes of any ones time.

It is an interesting example of Armenian church in Bulgaria. The temple is small, and it is not allowed to take photos inside.

This is a beautiful gem of a place. By chance we visited it on the way into the 'Happy Bar and Grill' which is situated, conveniently, next door. This church is a wonderful oasis of prayer and beauty in the heart of an already lovely city, and it is well worth popping into.
