We lived in the Fiesta-M hotel and decided to take a bus to Old Nessebar. Very fast (several stops) and quite affordable. I was shocked by the mill, which has been partially preserved since ancient times! I was very pleasantly surprised by the presence of a card for the blind at the entrance to the city - it's very cool! I liked the very atmosphere of the town, its cobbled narrow streets, beautiful houses, a large number of churches - I especially liked the Church of Christ Pantocrator with a swastika ornament.

A small town near Sveti Vlas. We traveled by bus, then on foot across the bridge to the old town. Beautiful old architecture. Bought a general ticket. which I absolutely do not recommend. Since the value is only the first largest museum. In which there are many antiquities. All other buildings are exactly the same inside. Just bare walls. There are fountains with drinking water on the territory. I didn’t like that the old city was turned into a bazaar, there were a lot of annoying traders. Beautiful sea views, you can take a bunch of beautiful photos.

So, as a lover of visiting historical places, I visited this place. I liked it very much, although the accompanying guide was "not very". A beautiful place, it's nice to wander through the streets, go to the sea, by the way, beautiful landscapes open up. During the visit it was very hot, but springs with icy water helped out. We had lunch in a restaurant with a panoramic view of the sea and national cuisine. I advise everyone to visit.

I suggest that you familiarize yourself with the video of my sightseeing tour of the ancient city of Nessebar, whose birth dates back long before our era. There are many ancient churches and other buildings on the territory. In 1983 the city was included in the UNESCO list. https://www. youtube. com/watch? v=es1L0HvG_LI

I really liked the streets of old Nessebar, where past and present, archaic and modern are mixed. The only thing that completely spoils the impression of the city is the crowds of tourists, but what can you do - this is the lot of all the places included in the UNESCO heritage. Tourists flock here like flies to honey: ) There are many church ruins of various centuries on the peninsula, the ruins of a fortress wall, towers, gates, reliefs, beautiful narrow cobbled streets and fishermen's houses made of wooden planks.
