Sozopol Old Town Photos

The city of Sozopol is located on a scenic bay along the southern Bulgarian coast, about 35 km south of Burgas.

The city, which has a population of 5,000, is one of the oldest on the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast and one of the country’s most popular seaside resorts. The romantic atmosphere of the city’s beautiful old town attracts visitors from all over the world.

Sozopol’s Old Town was declared a museum-reserve by Ministerial Decree № 320 on September 7, 1974. The reserve includes more than 180 residences, constructed from the middle of the 18th century to the beginning of the 19th century. Houses in the Old Town are built of stone and wood and conform to the so-called Black Sea school of architecture. 

Here are a few of the photos taken on our recent holiday, showing the stone and wood houses.
