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.

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.
