At Nessebar, see how traces of numerous civilizations have merged into a distinctive cultural whole over 3,000 years of history. This World Heritage site is also called the "pearl of the Black Sea" and Bulgaria's Dubrovnik. Explore the ancient city's remains, which date mostly from the Hellenistic period. Highlights include the acropolis, a temple of Apollo, an agora, and a wall from the Thracian fortifications. Enter one of the many churches to discover examples of ornamental ceramics--the painted decorations characteristic of the Byzantine period. Walk among 19th-century wooden houses, typical of the Black Sea's architecture of the period.

  • A magical and beautiful town on an island. Monuments, churches, ancient houses. All this is overrun by commerce and tourism. Damage. Where are the old days?

  • Really nice place. People are lovely. It could take about 2 hours to visit the hole old city. I recommend
  • Chose this restaurant based on rating but subsequently have discovered that many scores are for the town Old Nessebar rather than the restaurant. The setting of the seaside terrace is lovely but there the pleasure ends. The food is at best mediocre, overpriced and the portions are small and the service is erratic. I would not recommend it.
  • Charming medieval town, nice coffee shops and good restaurants. Very pleasant. Also, lots of wine tasting places.
  • Very nice old town with lots of ruins and nice restaurants as well as beautiful greenery. If you are close to Nessebar I preferred Nessebar though which is why I can only give 4 stars
  • It's time to see Old town- in the early summer is beautifully.
