Traveling is one of my favorite things. Though it gets a little bit more complicated with the baby, Ron and I still try to go somewhere for a scenery change. As I told you in my previous post, Nessebar is my favorite spot on the Black Sea. After taking you to the local harbor, today our destination is the old town of this magical place.
Dating back to the 6th Century BC, Nessebar used to be an island, which was later connected to the mainland though a narrow man-made path. Originally a Thracian settlement, it was an important trading centre. Further on, it remained important during mediaeval times when many churches were built. Nowadays it stands as a key site due it its historical landmarks for which it has become part of UNESCO’s world heritage. But saying this has nothing to do with actually seeing and feeling the magnetism of this old town.
Unfortunately, we had some technical issues, so I’m unable to show you much of the town itself in photos. But trust me, you’d better visit and see for yourself. History, food, traditions, and shopping, plus, you’ll be able to enjoy the golden sandy beaches in the town and in Sunny Beach. Lots of things to do in the area!
Have you ever been to Nessebar? Or would you ever go?
