How to see the ruins of the ancient city of Nessebar in Nesebar
Nessebar is the oldest city in Europe, whose history begins more than three millennia ago. In fact, archaeologists find new and new traces of the life of ancient cultures and civilizations that lived on the peninsula every day. Nessebar is declared as city-museum, and since 1983 is under the auspices of UNESCO, because there is an uncountable number of ruins, which are considered to be masterpieces of art.

In the Old City, which is almost buried under the water, the last remnant of the land has preserved the unique ruins of medieval churches, the ancient port and fortress walls, ancient houses with wooden bay windows and external staircases. Cobbled streets and wooden buildings of the 19th century give Nessebar a special charm. And in general, churches, each in its own unique style - is the pride of the Bulgarians. It seems there are more churches than people and each of them is unique in its architecture or built on the ruins of ancient temples, and some have preserved valuable old frescoes.

How to do?

1. Go to the old part of the city on a small peninsula, by a narrow isthmus about 400 meters long.

2. The remaining piece of land is not very large, you can easily bypass it for a day, or even faster (or you can rent a bicycle).
3. Rent a boat and swim over the part of the city buried under water, in good weather it can be perfectly seen from above.
