Tsarevo (Vasilikou, Vasilikos, Vasiliko, Michurin) is a port city, situated on a small bay 65 km southeast of Burgas, on Highway E-87.

The earliest mention of the settlement is as a port during the 15-16th century. During the Ottoman rule, the city was known for the production of wine and cereals and, mostly, for its fishing and shipbuilding, which was made easier by its sandy coastline and the abundance of wood from the Strandzha region. During the first half of the 20th century, Vasiliko had a fleet of 42 boats. The demographic collapse after the signing of the Odrin Peace Treaty, which ended the Russo-Turkish war on September 2, 1829, affected greatly the commercial life of the village. After the Liberation it was left on the periphery of the Ottoman Empire. Its final liberation came after the First Balkan War in 1912. The current name of Tsarevo is a translation of its old Greek name.
