About Sozopol


Sozopol is one of the oldest Bulgarian cities, located on a picturesque peninsula in the southern part of the Burgas Bay, 34 kilometers south of Bourgas.

Sozopol (Apollonia) is the earliest Greek colony on the Black Sea, founded in the 6th century BC.

Today it is a popular seaside resort, famous for its sandy beaches, ancient stone and wood houses from the 19th century and a romantic harbor and coastline.

With its cultural and historical past, preserved architecture from the 18th - 19th century and the annual Apollonia Arts Festival, the city today attracts many tourists. Sozopol is divided into two parts. The "old" town, located on a peninsula, and the "new" - called "Harmani" because of the existence here once of an abundance of mills.

For many decades, the narrow and steep streets of Sozopol, its old wooden houses with bay windows, vines, wine cellars, old churches and chapels, museums and fishing boats have attracted artists and writers.
