  • Small but full of treasures, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, and Bulgarian icons. Well worth a visit if you are at all interested in history  more »
  • We liked the Museum, it is really small, but in my opinion is an integral part of Nessebar. If you came to this wonderful city, go to the Museum, learn about its past, it captures and creates just the right mood for a stroll through the old streets. So much so that the price of admission is low. From what was remembered most: gravestones, gold jewelry, ancient icons.

  • The Museum is very clearly illustrates 3-thousand-year history of Nessebar, separate rooms for periods-Thracian, Greek, Roman, Byzantine. Instead of the Turkish period, there is a separate room with stunning icons in the basement, showing how developed and surviving Christian art under the Ottoman yoke. Without visiting the Museum of impression of Nessebar is incomplete; In addition it is well air-conditioned, and here you can buy tickets to other churches and museums of Nessebar, which will save time and money.

  • A beautiful place to visit, full of history and charm. It is also great for photos.
  • So much history on such a small spot! Sunny Beach is a joke. The only good thing with that place is that you can leave it and go to Nessebar!
  • Liked very much. Historical items from several thousand years.
  • I didn't go in but was lovely around the place 😊
  • Many artifacts from the history of Nessebar. High level of details was used to decorate jewellery, pottery, building fragments. Beautiful.

Where to stay in Nessebar

Though much of the accommodations in the immediate region are concentrated in larger, nearby seaside cities, Nessebar itself features some affordable options. The city lacks many international chains, but this means you can find affordable places to stay more or less anywhere in town. Grab a spot in one of the many locally run guesthouses scattered around the modern part of the city (just inland from the historical peninsula section but within easy walking distance). To be even closer to the World Heritage Site of the ancient city, consider staying in a guesthouse or bed and breakfast out on the peninsula right among the historical buildings.
