Discover Nesebar, famous for its churches, and Sozopol’s Old Town, which includes more than 180 residences, constructed from the middle of the 18th century to the beginning of the 19th century.
What to Expect
You will be picked up from your accommodation/hotel in Varna at about 9:00. In about an hour and a half, you will reach your first destination, Nesebar, where you will stay for a few hours. Today, a total of forty churches survive, wholly or partly, in the vicinity of the town. Some of the most famous include: the Church of St Sophia or the Old Bishopric (Stara Mitropoliya) (5th–6th century); and the Basilica of the Holy Mother of God Eleusa (6th century). Whether built during the Byzantine, Bulgarian or Ottoman rule of the city, the churches of Nesebar represent the rich architectural heritage of the Eastern Orthodox world and illustrate the gradual development from early Christian basilicas to medieval cross-domed churches.
After lunch in a fish restaurant you will continue to Burgas and Sozopol, your next destination. You will spent the whole afternoon enjoying the Old Town and the beach at Sozopol. Houses in the Old Town are built of stone and wood and conform to the so-called Black Sea school of architecture. The best known are The Marieta Stefanova House, The Kreanoolu House, The Todor Zagorov House, The Kurtidi House, and The Dimitri Laskaridis House, among others. In the late afternoon you will set off back to Varna, where you will arrive at about 19:30.
