Nessebar Weather in Nessebar

Nessebar was founded nearly 3,000 years ago. The old town recounts the history of the people who lived in these lands. It was declared an architectural reserve and in 1983 it was included in UNESCO’s World Heritage List. 

The old part of Nessebar is located on a small patch of land barely 850 m long and 350 m wide. It is connected to the mainland by a narrow isthmus. Over the centuries almost one third of the old town has disappeared into the sea. Today parts of its fortification wall still remain standing underwater and can be seen at about a hundred meters away from the shore. Many buildings from the Bulgarian Revival have been preserved - typical representatives of the Bulgarian Black Sea-type of Revival house. There are also old windmills and drinking fountains. A lot of history about this region can be found by visiting the Archaeological Museum, St. Spas Church and St. Stefan Church. The rich history of Nessebar and the beautiful mix of modern and ancient make it one of the most romantic places at the Black Sea.

Set on a rocky peninsula, Nessebar’s beautiful old town is densely packed with historic houses and churches. The site was first settled by Thracians, who founded a town known as Mesembria. It was later taken by Greeks and then by Romans, to whom it capitulated rather than suffer destruction. In the 9th century, when Mesembria was renamed Nessebar, the town became part of the First Bulgarian Kingdom, but it was in the 13-th to 14-th centuries, as a powerful city-state, that it reached its commercial and cultural zenith. Today, as a well publicized World Heritage Site, Nessebar is popular with visitors. Because of this it tends to become very crowded in the summer season.
