Overview of Nessebar

Set on Bulgaria’s coast and known as the ‘Pearl of the Black Sea’, Nessebar is full of surprises. On one hand you’ve glorious, long, Blue Flag beaches, backing onto friendly souvenir shops and delicious fish restaurants. On the other, there’s the old quarter which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The spectacular old town, visible from the coastline, has cobbled streets, wooden merchants’ houses, frescoed churches, ruins and fortifications that trace over 3,000 years of civilisation. And with just a 30 minute drive from the airport, your holiday to Bulgaria starts practically the minute you land.

Things to do in Nessebar

Of course, don’t miss discovering ancient worlds (from the Romans to the Ottomans), in the old town. Here, you’ll find endless, age-old churches, an acropolis, Apollo’s temple, Roman ruins, traditional Bulgarian houses, Thracian fortifications, and a couple of great museums.

Resort Summary

As you’d expect of a city of such antiquity and culture, the restaurants of Nessebar offer fantastic meals, and most of them are pretty affordable too.

You might be surprised to learn that Bulgarian food shares similarities with the kind of meals you’d enjoy in Turkey or Greece. You’ll also enjoy more than traditional tastes during your visit, because Nessebar’s connection to the sea makes it something of a hotbed for seafood of all shapes and sizes. What’s more, the increase in tourism to Nessebar over the decades has made it rich in international dining options, so those of you with a soft spot for French, Italian, Indian and Chinese meals will find plenty to offer.

Largely, you’re going to find that Nessebar offers a good selection of restaurants that are divided between two parts of the city, namely the coast and the inland cobbled streets. While the latter option gives easy access to inner city nightlife, where live music and rustic bars are frequently the order of the day, you’re going to also have plenty of options for eating with a sea view. Many of the vistas offered by these clifftop cafes and beachfront restaurants have to be seen to be believed.
