We had all the time in the world to walk around and explore the ruins of the church of St Sophia, taking our pictures and enjoying the feel of the old architecture of this magical building from the 5th century. Just as we were finished and sat down for a cup of morning coffee the busses with tourists arrived, but they didn't stay long. I'm guessing their guided tour had them scheduled for another site within just a short period of time. Our luck. We could just sit there, listening to the morning sounds as the old town of Nessebar awoke.

Very busy ruins in a prime spot along the standard tourist trail through Old Nessebar. I sat at a cafe and had a coffee and watched people interact with the ruins. Very beautiful ruins and much easier to photograph later in the day when the large bus/cruise tour groups have left Nessebar.

The remains of an ancient Byzantine basilica, built in the 5th century. Now only the side walls of the basilica remain, but it is still worth visiting the place which is very interesting. It is located in the very center of Old Nessebar.
