Below we mention these cities and towns in order of our preference as we have personally visited:
The town of Sozopol was founded in the seventh century BC, nothing more and nothing less, and is a hidden gem of Europe in all aspects, in our opinion it has everything to be a tourist destination of international fame, however little is known like other tourist destinations in Bulgaria lacking promotion and advertising in the rest of Europe. The town of Sozopol has a population of about 6.000 people are divided into two clearly differences, first in the historical district with quaint nineteenth-century houses manufactured entirely from wood , some of which are offered as guesthouses, and they found in a pedestrian area of cobbled streets that make us think that we are in a village in medieval style, instead of a sun and beach destination. This old part of Sozopol is located on a small peninsula, connected to the mainland by a strip of land one side houses the fishing port and the other the main beach of Sozopol.
This beach is white sand as all of the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast and being very built is not crowded even in summer. Following is the newest part of town with hotels, restaurants and residential buildings, but not too many, Sozopol which gives a very relaxed and quiet yet with enough distractions for the whole family…What more could you want? : good beach, old town, Complete fishing port and tourist services…and also has the advantage that Sozopol you can walk from one end to the other without using the car. Sozopol predominates in local tourism, It has not yet reached the massification of foreign tourists occurs elsewhere in the Mediterranean all come to mind…
Nesebar is one of the oldest cities in Europe, fOUNDED 3.200 years. Currently the old town is a warren of pedestrian streets between houses quaint old village style and is UNESCO World Heritage. It is one of the most visited tourist places in the country. The old town is surrounded by sea it joins the mainland by a strait that connects it with the most modern part of Nesebar where shops and hotels are located and two good beaches, one on each side of the strait linking the old and the new city of Nesebar.
In addition to the sandpipers and wanting festive atmosphere close to Nesebar just 2 kilometers is one of the busiest beaches on the Black Sea Coast, calling itself Sunny Beach (sunny beach). Here is dominated by large hotel complexes, restaurants, bares, terraces on the beach sand, amusement and water parks for children, etc…everything you need to be a typical sun and beach destination, especially among Russian tourists and Central.
