About Nessebur

The ancient town of Nessebur lies on a small, rocky peninsular in the Black Sea, connected to the mainland by a narrow isthmus. Truly picturesque, its narrow cobblestone streets, period wooden houses and medieval churches tell the story of its rich history, which dates back two millennia.

Be seduced by the romantic atmosphere, as you explore its UNESCO protected old quarter. At almost every turn you will come across one of its many beautiful churches, whose ornamental facades decorate the town. One of the oldest sanctuaries is the Basilica, which dates back to around the 5th century, whilst the most impressive is the 25 metre long Old Bishop's Residence.

As well as churches you can also see the remains of the fortress walls, admire its blend of architecture from different epochs, as well as explore its beaches and museums. Nearby, visit the town of Burgas, set on the shores of the largest bay on the Black Sea coast.
