Towns and villages - Nessebar (the old town)
The old part of the town, built on the picturesque Nessebar Peninsula, has been declared Old Nessebar architectural, historical and archaeological reserve and was included in the List of the world heritage under UNESCO protection in 1983.

At the very start of the peninsula, what draws the attention is the town gate with remains of fortifications (4th-6th century), built on top of older foundations (5th-4th century B.C.). Impressive traces of Old Greek, Early Byzantine or medieval fortress walls can be seen all over the Peninsula. At the entry to the old Nessebar is the Archaeological Museum, presenting the eventful history of the town.

Kind of an emblem of the town are the churches of Nessebur, some of the remarkable church architectural monuments that have survived to date. According to legend, during the Middle Ages there had been about 40 churches built on this small piece of a peninsula.
