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.

On a recent stop in Burgas we used the tour operator Tischner to do a half day tour of Nessebar & surrounding area. First the UNESCO World heritage City of Nessebar. 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.

This is a fascinating area to walk around. The old buildings are well preserved and there is an air of old time feel to it. However, there is an over abundance of 'shops' and in some cases eateries. Possibly because we were there in off season the place was not crowed and the downside was being constantly pestered to enter... More
