Summary

Saint Vlas is a town and seaside resort on the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria, located in Nesebar municipality at the foot of the southern slopes of the Balkan Mountains, in the northern part of Burgas Bay.

A settlement was founded at the present place of Sveti Vlas in the 2nd century AD by Thracians and Greeks, then called Larissa. It acquired the name Sveti Vlas in the 14th century after Saint Blaise, a monastery dedicated to whom existed in the region, but was burnt down in the 14th-18th century by consecutive pirate raids. During the Ottoman rule of Bulgaria, it was known as Kücük manastir or simply Manastir ("monastery"), while the name Sveti Vlas became official after 1886.

Until 1920 the population of Sveti Vlas was predominantly Greek. After 1920 as a result of the exchange of population between Greece and Bulgaria less than 10 Greek families remained in Sveti Vlas and many Bulgarian families emigrated from Greece, predominantly from Greek Macedonia and established themselves in Sveti Vlas. The settlement became a climatic sea resort in 1963 and a town on 2 February 2006. Sveti Vlas is the only place on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast where the beaches are facing directly south.

There are numerous hotels of different categories and prices in the resort. Most of the hotels offer all inclusive accommodation. The resort is famous for its Yacht port "Marina Dinevi" with a capacity for 300 yachts and excellent facilities.
