The consulates    EN

Author: ROUSSEV IVAN

Greece: The Greek consular agency in Burgas was established in 1850 with unsalaried holder Ioanis Apostolis. After 1856 it was elevated to the status of a Vice Consulate.

Austria: The Austrian Vice Consulate in Burgas surely existed in the beginning of 1854 because it was mentioned in a report from February 15, 1854 of tradesmen Barthélemy Medan addressed to French ambassador in Istanbul[1]. It was created to look after the interests of Austrian vessels and tradesmen passing through the port of Burgas, mainly vessels of the Austrian “Lloyd”.

Italy: Probably the Italian consular office was established in Burgas during the Crimean war (1853–1856). Initially was created a “Pro-consulate of Sardinia”. In the beginning of 1854 it surely existed because it was mentioned in a report from February 15, 1854 of tradesmen Barthélemy Medan addressed to French ambassador in Istanbul[2]. We know the names of some of the holders of Italian consulate in Burgas in the 1860s and 1870s. The Catholic cleric Galabert who visited Burgas in 1863, noted that the majority of Catholics in the city at that time were Italians and Dalmatians. They were those who sought protection from this consulate[3].

United Kingdom: A British Vice Consulate was established in Burgas after the Crimean was (1853–1856). We know the names of the holders of this consulate in the 1860s and 1870s: Stanislas Saint Clair and Charles Brophy[4].

France: The French Vice Consulate was opened up in Burgas by a decree of the government of the Third French Republic on December 21, 1878[5].
