Sozopol

The town of Sozopol is situated on a picturesque peninsula in the southern part of Burgas Bay, approximately 30 kilometers to the south of Burgas.

Its population is around 5000. It is one of the most ancient towns along the Bulgarian Black Sea coast and one of the most renowned sea resorts in the country. The beautiful Old Town and its romantic atmosphere attract lots of tourists from all over the world. Archeological studies reveal more than 7 millennia cultural tradition in Sozopol.

The Old Town of Sozopol is now a museum. About 180 houses from the middle of 18th and beginning of 19th Century shape up this protected area. The houses in the Old Town are made up of stone and wood and belong to the so-called Black Sea house architecture type. The Old Town is favoured by many for romantic walks for its stone-paved narrow streets and old houses. The numerous taverns provide specific Bulgarian Black Sea cuisine as well as diverse specialty meals.

Tourists that want to go sight-seeing should visit the Museum of Archeology and Art Gallery. In 2010, upon archeological excavations in the nearby Island of Saint Ivan, the holy relics of Saint John the Baptist have been found. Today, this precious artifact is stored in St. St. Cyril and Methodiy church in the town and attracts pilgrims from around the globe. The ancient Sozopol with the relics of St. John the Baptist has been the winner in the contest “The Miracles of Bulgaria” in 2011 г.

Some of the major events in Sozopol are the Arts Festival (1 – 10 September) and meeting July Morning (practice inspired by the eponymous song of Uriah Heep, spending the night on the beach and waiting for the sunrise of 1st July to come).
