Nesebar Ancient City
Due to the coronavirus epidemic, which influenced the whole world, people started to turn to different tourism areas. Wildlife destinations have started to attract attention rather than hotels and sea tourism. The historical Nesebar region, built on the cliffs in Bulgaria, is also a remarkable and must-visit.
B.C. At the beginning of the 6th century, the city became a Greek colony. Among the ruins of the city, mostly from the Hellenistic period, there is an acropolis, Temple of Apollo, a wall from the agora and Thracian walls. Among other monuments, the Stara Mitropolia Basilica and the castle are from the Middle Ages. These structures were built in the period when Nesebar was one of the most important Byzantine towns on the west coast of the Black Sea. Wooden houses built in the 19th century are typical examples of the Black Sea architecture of the period.
Nesebar Ancient City, one of the biggest coastal villages of Burgas today, is a unique example of the synthesis of centuries-old human activities in the field of culture. The city is a place where countless civilizations leave tangible traces in a single homogeneous whole in harmony with nature. The different development stages of residential local architecture reflect the development stages of the architectural style in the Balkans and the entire Eastern Mediterranean region. The urban structure contains elements from the 2nd millennium BC, Antiquity, and the Middle Ages. Because of all these features, it was declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1983.
The town, which was dominated by the medieval religious architecture, which was replaced by the imposition of traditional Byzantine forms, has served as a remarkable spiritual heart of Christian culture for thousands of years.
