Sozopol Old Town

Reviewed By Jenny S - Lancaster, England, United Kingdom

Large old town quite separate from the new one with cobbled tree line streets and winding tiny alleys connecting many little roads and churches. Unusual architecture with rough been stone bases and wooden Matchboard upper floors which step out further each level. The place feels authentic with local women selling jams etc made from fruit in their Gardens. There is a street market, a few boards advising on the history, and their EU funded eco-friendly ambition. We spent 3 hours walking round and enjoyed a drink al fresco at one of the many bars on the southern wall

Akra Fortress

Не стоит того, чтобы специально ехать издалека, чтобы посмотреть на это. Разве что если Вы не археолог, историк или просто любите такие места. Живущим недалеко можно прогуляться, очень красивые виды открываются

Sea Garden

Reviewed By mimkaBurgas - Burgas, Bulgaria

Burgas sea garden is very well kept by the municipality, areas are clean. There are many Fountains and green spaces. Of course the view is beautiful as the sea garden itself is a bit higher than the beach because of the denivelation, I.e. you can see the horizon from high perspective which is very nice.
It feels good to be there. There are not too many restaurants and cafes there.

Monastery of St. George

Reviewed By mitzov - Burgas

The Monastery was established in the 7th century in the town of Anchialo /The old name of Pomorie/ but was later destroyed during the Ottoman invasion in the late 14th century. At the end of the 17th century, a Turkish administrator, Selim Bey, who according to a legend, was ill with an incurable disease, settled here and built his own farm in the place of the former monastery. One night, Selim Bey dreamt that he found curative water in his yard. On the morning, he started searching for the place and found a marble bas-relief of St. George. Beneath it, the water of his dream sprang out and after he drank from it, he was cured.
The legend further says that after that Selim Bey and his entire family converted to Christianity. The bas relief that he found in the yard is still kept and can be seen in the monastery. Selim Bey also built a small chapel close to the holy spring that laid the foundations of the present-day monastery. After he widowed, Selim Bey became the first father superior of the monastery. The present-day church was built in 1856 over the foundations of the preceding one. The church preserves valuable examples of the iconography art of the 18th and 19th century.

Beglik-Tash

Reviewed By niki101 - London, United Kingdom

Beglik Tash was a sacred site once used by Thracian tribes for rituals and religious ceremonies from 2nd century BC to the beginning of 4th century AC. The place is unique, with all of its elements preserved in their original form.

As you wander through the site, you encounter an astronomical clock, a marital bed, a throne, a huge rock in form of heart, all made of stone.
Look at the clock. It consisted of 16 slabs - today only seven of them stand in their original place, ending in one another under inclination. It is believed that an earthquake caused a downgrade of the first slab and then, the rest were dragged along, like the domino effect.
Here is also The Kingdom of Hades (the ancient Greek God of the underworld). This is a very narrow slit in the rock. It is said that only sinless people could get through the slit. You might give it a try…
Beglik Tash is located in a forest territory, which used to be part of the hunting residence of the former communist head of the state, Todor Zhivkov. This is why one of the greatest discoveries regarding the Thracian history on the southern Black Sea coast remained unknown to science until 2003.

This is a peaceful place. Sitting on the ancient stones is a beautiful, spiritual moment.

There is a car park by the ticket office. Beware of snakes and lizards. Put on comfortable shoes and enjoy!

Southern Walls of Sozopol

Reviewed By 2PickyTravelers8 - Silver Spring, MD

Walk through the cobble streets, stopping at the various stalls and stores selling Bulgarian crafts along with new clothes and gift items. There are many restaurants to tempt you, many with lovely ambiance as they're by the sea. Explore the many side streets, take a break for a drink and eventually wander down toward the beach area. A very pleasant way to spend a day.

Kavatsite Beach

Reviewed By Yvonne W - Preston, United Kingdom

This is a lovely long beach with many vibrant restaurants that are beautifully decorated to complement beach life. We walked from one end to the other and found it all very clean and spacious. We stopped for a coffee in one of the many modern beach restaurants were you can sit eat, drink, chat with friends or play board games or cards very relaxing. Would defiantly recommend this beach.

Museum of Salt

Reviewed By John W - Douglas, United Kingdom

You park and walk past a mud bathing area. Couldn't tempt my lot. Locals seemed to enjoy. You see the salt flats and pans, and mounds of drying salt. The museum is small, interesting photos and models. Seems that after it was nationalised in communist times production fell. Now back in multiple private hands. Unfortunately the museum shop does not sell Black Sea salt. But mud facials and scrubs and the aforementioned snail extract soap, 2 leva £0.80, for the family member you live to wind up.
