Did you know that one of the most ancient cities in Europe is located in Bulgaria? Emerging as a Thracian settlement almost 3200 years ago, today Nessebar attracts thousands of tourists not only for its beautiful beaches, but also for its history. Part of it was declared an architectural and historical reserve of national importance, today it is under the protection of UNESCO.
