Known as Messembria by its founders, Dorian Greeks, Nessebar was founded in the 6th century BC. Under the Romans the once-influential trading colony declined in importance in favor of neighboring Anchialo (Pomorie) and it became a remote outpost in the empire's northern reaches. In the 7th century, the Bulgarians under Khan Kroum managed to capture the fortified settlement from the Byzantines after a long siege. Nessebar's many churches and monasteries were granted special privileges, some of which were continued under the Ottomans.
Today, the narrow peninsula (an island in antiquity, it was later connected by a causeway) is one of Bulgaria's most delightful tourist spots. Designated a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sight in 1983, the tiny town attracts nearly a million yearly visitors. Narrow cobblestone streets wind amongst quaint 19th century wooden houses, their tiny courtyards filled with smokini (fig) trees and vine trellises. Although once graced by forty churches, Nessebar's dozen remaining medieval churches are the remnants of both Slav and Greek Orthodox communities that thrived here during the middle ages.
What To Do
The entrance to Nessebar is via a narrow gateway in the fortress wall that once encircled the town. The earliest foundations were laid by the Thracians 2,800 years ago, and later were fortified by Hellenes and Byzantines.
The best-preserved church, with its colorful exterior of red brick, white marble and glazed polychrome ceramic inlays, is Christ the Pantokrator; it currently houses an excellent art gallery. Another sight not to be missed is the archaeological museum, with its superb collection of antiquities.
The central plaza around the Old Metropolitan is believed to have been the site of the ancient agora, or Roman market. Today, the entrepreneurial spirit of the agora lives on with a plethora of sidewalk vendors hawking all sorts of art work and tourist souvenirs.
As the major historical site on the coast, Nessebar does not lack for restaurants.
New Nessebar, located on the mainland, houses most of the local population and modern facilities.Also, new Nessebar has both a seaside wooded park and a sandy beach from which sunbathers can contemplate old Nessebar's charming shoreline. The beach also features a gentle slope from shallow to deep water as well as chair and umbrella rentals. few minutes walk up the road is the mega-resort of Sunny Beach.
