A visit to the oold town on the peninsula is really worthwile.A lot of interesting old buildings, history galore, nice old houses, a fine marina; shops of all kinds. For me the only drawback is that the hawkers persecute you and don't permit you to enjoy the town on your own.

I travelled specifically here to visit and stay in the Old Town but found nothing particularly special, or maybe it was that there were so many tourist-oriented shops that the town had no appeal to me really. I was going to stay in a hotel here but finally decided that the prices were a bit steep for what I was... More

The ruins was nice to see,but too many shops and inthrowers made my experience a bit uncomfortable. Not much to say here really. Go and check it out yourself. Weather was sunny and good. And it was really close to the hotel.

Took a walk down here in the evening (we were only staying in sunny beach for 1 night) looked very pretty lit up at night, we stayed out of season so it was lovely and peaceful - I can imagine it gets a lot busier in peak season! There are some lovely views from the ruins and many restaurants for... More

Hi, Every time when i here, in Nessebar i mean, my condition become better. Good place to relax and eat an ice cream:)) April and May i think the best months: not so big crowds around, prices not so high as usual and no one is trying to "drag" you into a restaurant.. Lovely town, for sure.

Olod Nessebar looks like an old Greek mountain village that someone took it from northern Greece and misplaced in the Sea. I was so happy going there, so prod of the Greek heritage of the are and very happy that the new residents love the area and taking it up to the next lever. I fell in love with this... More

Old Nessebar is situated on a tiny island which is connected to the mainland by a causeway. It is its seaside location which gives it most of its character. As you wander through the Old Town you will catch glimpses of the sea at the end of laneways and hear the cawing of seagulls overhead. Apart from this, the town... More

It's a great place and it has to be seen during day and during night. It's like 2 different cities. They have a lot of terraces where you could drink something and talk and have a big taste of local culture. But be aware, if you ask a waiter for your check and they shake their heads, it means yes.... More
