Old Nessebar is one of our favourite places in Bulgaria! The old town is very charming and beautiful. There are a lot of shops and street vendors, but they don't try to haggle you. You can walk around freely and look at the local goods (honey, spices, embroidery, cooking pans) without being harassed. The ruins are enchanting; very often, you... More

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...

Very nice little town , well preserved and some parts of the city are very interesting ... But ... visit it out of season , otherwise you will have a lot of tourists and a lot of shops everywhere ... also during the season , a lot of people who will try to make you enter their restaurant ...

Beautifully sited on a small peninsular across the sea from the madness that is sunny beach. Old cobbled streets wend their way around the town. Usual touristy shops, but a few nice restaurants to sit and enjoy the local cuisine. Old churches and buildings are in abundance, a real journey back in time.

Small and nice town just next to one of Bulgaria's biggest beach resorts. Since we visited in September it was not too crowded and it was nice to walk around, seing the nice buildings and streets.

It is located on the cost of the Black Sea, it is very well persevered & has people living in the old city. It has many shops & restaurants,... More

10 years ago, this place was charming, exciting and Bulgarians were pride that it's part of the UNESCO herritage. Now... oh well, not anymore part of UNESCO... just hungry for the tourists money people.
