What you’ll see on your tour of Nessebar and Sozopol
Nessebar is located on a peninsula and widely considered to be one of the oldest European cities in existence.
In 1956, it was made into a city museum and the old parts of the city are preserved by law. The cobblestones, old wooden houses, ancient churches and all of the remains are protected and the site is considered a UNESCO world treasure.
Centuries ago though, a part of the town was swallowed by the sea. In good weather, it is possible to see those remains if you take a boat a little way out from the shore. The still above-water parts of the town might seem large enough. But this is only a small fraction of the size it used to be!
You’ll visit the well-preserved fortress walls, towers and gates as well as some of the more than 40 surviving medieval churches of the ancient settlement.
What’s more, Nessebar was and still is a craftsman’s town. Even to this day there are craftsmen producing products from metal, ceramics and jewellery.
Sozopol is a beautiful seaside town on Bulgaria’s Black Sea Coast. One of the oldest towns built on the coastline, there has been a settlement here since the Bronze Age.
The modern town was founded in the 7th century BC and these days it is probably best known for hosting the Appollonia art and film festival – as well as, of course, its glorious weather, stunning beaches and extraordinary Balkan-Mediterranean cuisine.
