This is a one day guided tour that takes you to the ancient towns of Nesebar and Sozopol.
Nesebar is sometimes said to be the town with the highest number of churches per capita. 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); 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.
Sozopol’s Old Town was declared a museum-reserve on September 7, 1974. The reserve includes more than 180 residences, constructed from the middle of the 18th century to the beginning of the 19th century. 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.
