Nessebar is a magical place!

 

 

Warm sea, caressing sun and ancient culture merge here…


Nessebar is a lovely Black Sea resort, enclosed by the sea and connected to the continental part with a narrow strip of land.
The peninsula measures around 350 metres wide and 850 metres long. The town of Nessebar is among the most popular Bulgarian sea resorts and is under the protection of UNESCO.
The Old Town of Nessebar is a cultural monument enclosed in UNESCO's World Heritage List. The old town carries a romantic spirit with its churches and monuments. Nessebar (also known as Nessebur) is one of the few places on Earth where you can eat a tasteful meal of lobster under the heavy walls of an ancient Roman fortress and also feel the breeze in your hair from the sea nearby. How about a glass of beer in front of an old Bulgarian church.
The spirit of past times is woven into the narrow coastal streets and you can nearly hear the sound of the galloping Byzantine horses that used to race on the lands of Nessebar years ago.
There is a mystic touch to the ancient spirit of the seaside – one that has been attracting tourists from all over the world for decades.
The Roman thermal waters, the stone amphitheatre and the 40 ancient churches are just some of the historical spots that pull and locals tourists towards the Old City of Nessebar like a magnet.
Tourists can enjoy the majestic fortress walls that used to encircle the ancient city. Of these, only the western gateway, which used to protect the town on ground, remains preserved. The other gates can be seen under water at about 80 metres from the coastline.

Closeby are numerous restaurants that offer quality seafood dishes and Bulgarian food – some entertaining with tales and myths of pirates and mermaids, while others offer an exotic experience among jungle vines. Popular places for couples are the restaurants built on the rocky sea coast, offering unforgettable panoramic views of the sea coupled with beautiful sunsets.

Closeby to Nessebar sitsthe village of Kosharitsa. Adventurous tourists will enjoy the attractive safaris that take place over the weekends. From Nessebar, tourists get in 4×4 vehicles and head for the foot of the Eastern Balkan Mountains. Occasionally, during defined periods, hunting is allowed also.

• the Church of St Sophia;
• the Basilica of the Holy Mother of God Eleusa;
• the Church of John the Baptist; 
• the Church of St Stephen or the New Bishopric;
