St Stephens Church, Nessebar
(4.6/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
At the coast of Black Sea, see 16th century iconostasis at St Stephens Church, the UNESCO Heritage Site. The eastern part of three-nave basilica dates from 11th century, and presents its oldest part. In 16th, and 18th century, the church got murals of over 1,000 New Testament figures. As you walk through the church, you will walk through centuries of incredible art, and religion. Later on, organizations, and government renovated the church in order to preserve iconography, carved bishop’s throne, and a pulpit. See well-preserved interior frescoes, rare examples of wall art of central Europe.
