An attractive town, full of old world charm, on a peninsula jutting into the black sea. Lots of photographic opportunities.

This old... okay, ancient town is neat to wander around. The narrow cobblestone streets lead to a plethora of churches that represent various architectural styles of Byzantine, Bulgarian and Ottoman influence. The locals seemed to be rather friendly and would usually offer a smile or wave.

Nessebar is an old amazing town in Bulgaria, that belongs to the UNESCO list and definitely to the MUST places in here. Even in winter it makes impression (+no turists, streets are so quite and even more special). It cannot be described, it has to be seen...
