The Quaint Town of Nessebar

Hi guys! Apologies for being M.I.A the past few weeks. To be honest with you all I haven’t been doing anything worth blogging about other then studying for exams and working. But my exam period is over and my summer holidays have begun! The plan is for there to be one blog post weekly that will be published every Monday between eight and nine in the evening U.K. time. However, depending on where I am and wifi connection this may change. If you don’t want to miss a post then you can subscribe via email and trust me, i have lots of fun things planned that ARE worth blogging abut this summer that you wont want to miss so stay tuned!

Anyway, onto the actual post…

For the past few days I have been in Sunny Beach, Bulgaria! We’re in a resort so there’s not a lot to blog about, however we did take a trip to the old town of Nessebar. Sunny Beach is a man made resort area on the east coast of Bulgaria. From here you can see the old town of Nessebar that sticks out as if it’s it’s own little Island.

The quaint town is covered in cobbled streets and churches. We took a walking tour around the town and saw five churches but there are several more in the town. The first church we visited had lots of posters outside the entrance which were dedicated to the people who had passed away. We wondered through the grand entrance and no photography wasn’t allowed so I pretended to take a mental picture and a woman walking past me yelled ‘NO’ at me. Inside, the church was full of gold and silver valuables. There was an area for candles where you could light them and place them on one of two shelves. One was dedicated to the living one was dedicated to the dead. We didn’t go inside the other churches but each one had a story.

The town is built on sand dunes which makes it significantly more hilly than Sunny Beach. This makes the evenings in Nessebar much warmer because there is less wind blowing through the buildings from the coast. While walking around, certain areas reminded me of ski resorts in Sweden and Switzerland because of how nordic they looked. There were hardly any cars driving around the streets which made the streets feel quiet and peaceful.

At the end of the tour we headed into a restaurant by the port and had traditional Bulgarian food of yogurt and jam. The town is very quaint compared to Sunny Beach which is just touristy. It’s a good way to escape the hustle and bustle of busy Sunny Beach and well worth a visit.

Peace Out Guys x
