Fodor's Review

Founded in the 7th century BC by Greek colonists, Sozopol on the southern Black Sea Coast is both historically fascinating and one of Bulgaria's most important seaside resorts. The former is thanks to its strategic location on an easily defended promontory. The latter is due to the long stretch of fine sandy beach along its southeast edge. Undersea archaeological excavations in the port area have uncovered ceramics and remnants of homes that have been dated to the Bronze Age. Today, the most interesting sites are the many houses and churches that have been standing here since the Renaissance period.
