Bulgaria - The Black Sea Coast

Famed for its delightful medieval churches, nineteenth-century wooden architecture and labyrinthine cobbled streets, Nesebar’s old town, 35km northeast of Burgas, lies on a narrow isthmus connected by road to the mainland.

Greek colonists founded it and grew into a thriving port during the Byzantine era; ownership alternated between Bulgaria and Byzantium until the Ottomans captured it in 1453. The town remained an important centre of Greek culture and the seat of a bishop under Turkish rule, which left Nesebar’s Byzantine churches reasonably intact. Nowadays, the town depends on them for its tourist appeal, demonstrated by the often-overwhelming stream of summer visitors. Outside the hectic summer season, the place seems eerily deserted, with little open other than a few sleepy cafés.
