If you are in Bulgaria, you would be doing yourself an injustice not to visit Nessebar. The town and people are great and their is fantastic old streets and property as well as some places of historic interest.

The nicest part of Nessebar and one of the best old towns in Bulgaria. I have been in some old towns in Bulgaria, but the old town Nessebar I like the most.

Left won and we walked 5 mins to the start of the old town.... More
