Summary

Often referred to as the Pearl of the coastline, the Ancient City of Nessebar is located on a small peninsula in the Black Sea. Famed for its delightful medieval churches, nineteenth-century wooden architecture and labyrinthine cobbled streets, Nessebar is designated as part of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites since 1983 for its abundance of historic buildings. Founded 3200 years ago, the place emerged as a fortified Thracian settlement also known as Mesembria. During the years, traces of the Roman and Ottoman empire as well as Byzantine footprints can still be found. Today, the old part of the town has regained a romantic atmosphere and left a historical buzz for those that seek to explore the land.

The new part of Nesebar also offers various accommodation opportunities. The buildings of the town administration and many institutions are situated there. The north and the south beaches of Nesebar lie in the new part of the town. There is a beach in Old Nesebar, but it is a small one. Those who seek more excitement and entertainment can have a helicopter tour over Nesebar. In addition to that boat rides and various opportunities for water sports are available at the beaches of the resort. The numerous restaurants in the town vary in category and price. The romantic souls would prefer the restaurants in the Old Town, while young people would have more fun in the new part of Nesebar and the nearby resort of Slanchev bryag (Sunny Beach).

Today the old and the new part of the town are connected by a narrow isthmus. The old town lies on a small peninsula. Because of its exceptional cultural and historical value Nesebar was declared a museum, tourist, and resort complex of international importance by virtue of Ordinance No 243 of the Council of Ministers of 18 July 1956. In 1983 Old Nesebar was included in the List of World Cultural Heritage Sites of UNESCO.

Various events and concerts are held at the ancient theatre in Old Nesebar in the summer. Behind it lies the Nesebar Port where during the active summer season one can often see cruise ships which have stopped by the UNESCO town. Visitors who want to capture the spirit of the town can stay in Old Nesebar – there are many accommodation opportunities that vary in type and price – family hotels, private rental rooms, etc. There are numerous restaurants in the vicinity that serve delicious sea food.

In the summer the two resorts are connected by bus services which also operate to and from other destinations in the region. St. Vlas Resort, Elenite Resort, and Ravda Resort are not far away from Nesebar.
