Sozopol Old Town, Sozopol

(4.6/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
At Sozopol Old Town, experience the beaches, history, culture, and cuisine of an ancient seaside town. Walk the town's narrow cobbled streets alongside sun-dried brick walls and old wooden houses. Older women sit in front of the houses, chatting, knitting, and selling freshly picked figs and homemade jams and jellies. Watch fishermen on wooden boats pulling nets from the sea, then stop at one of many traditional restaurants for Bulgarian, Greek, or Turkish cuisine. You'll also find fish stalls, coffee shops, snack bars, and campsites. The town is famous for its lively cultural scene, especially the Apollonia art and film festival.
