Amazing Church, icons frescos, and architecture. Fascinating history of this and other Nesebar churches that have stood through centuries of various empires and epochs. Definitely worth a visit !

This church holds amazing art work which is so vibrant. Well worth a visit and so surprising as this is not the prettiest of the churches from the outside bug holds wondrous treasures inside.

Dating back to 11th century and bit different from other old churches in Nessebar as it has many stones in the structure while most others have bricks. Entrance fee is 3 leva but unfortunately we did not go inside as it was closed.

This one is on the main road heading towards old town, you cannot miss it, I like old architecture, so I enjoy it every time we walk by it.

Small church with not many information and not a lot for seeing- just a few icons. If you have to pay for entrance I think that inside of it there should be much more. I was a little disappointed from it.
