Very old historic town with cobbled streets and beautiful old port. The small shops and unique houses with there overhanging front make the streets cool and peaceful. Wonderful places to eat with great views.

UNESCO World Heritage Site.
This is a lovely place to spend time enjoying the relaxed atmosphere, old architecture and pretty cottages. There are some fabulous restaurants and great shops which are remarkably inexpensive for the quality of goods and all within a walk or a road 'train' ride of Sunny Beach centre.

Playa de Gandia

One of the pearls of the Black Sea of the Bulgarian coasts, which for something earned him the title of Unesco Heritage. It is an island that was formerly separated from the coast, but is currently linked to it by an artificial bridge. It keeps in its interior remains of the 1st century. Among the buildings to visit, the Archaeological Museum and its churches stand out. It is easily covered in four or five hours. Very close to Nessebar is the famous Sunny Beach, with great moves among young people.

Nesebar is a Unesco site for its historical and cultural heritage. It is an island of the Black Sea linked to the continent by an artificial isthmus. The city was founded by the Greeks under the name of Mesambria and many pieces from around the 1st century BC have been found in excavations that are on display in the Archaeological Museum.

The entrance to the old town is free but both the closed churches (not the basilica) and the museum are paid and there are combined tickets from 10 cams.

In addition to many people if you go in summer, it has been filled with many restaurants, food and souvenir shops. Although we had anticipated that it would be expensive, we did not find it that much.

We walked through the cobblestone streets (quite uncomfortable with a baby cart), admiring the wooden facades of the houses and the marbque always peeked in the background.
