  • Right at the entrance of the old town, on the right side, is the Church of Saints Cyril and Methodius. As a rule a lot there a crowd of people, but it's worth it to wait a few minutes (I'm not waiting any longer like 15) to see one of the most important relics of Christianity. Finger of John the Baptist is located in okutej gold and peeks out to it by such a special glasses mounted in the trunk.

  • Really difficult to go past the Church, it was built after the Turkish occupation, when the task to "hide" the temples no longer was. The Interior combines old with new icons, some author-artist Ivan Bahchevanov, exhibition of paintings which also works in an art gallery.

Where to stay in Sozopol

As a historical coastal town located partially on a curving peninsula, Sozopol offers an array of accommodations within easy walking distance of the ocean. Most of the larger upscale lodgings sit within the newer, inland part of town. Though these tend to be more expensive, they offer ameniteies like on-site pools and restaurants (and they're still close to both the beach and historical city core). Also check out the private villas and guesthouses scattered throughout the cobbled streets and winding alleys of the Old Town on the peninsula. They will put the town's ancient Greek, Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman sites right on your doorstep.
