    Beautiful!
    We loved walking around. Especially the part where the restaurants are located at the seaside (you actually walk through the restaurants). We were there on a Monday afternoon, and it was really quiet and cosy. Especially when compared to Sunny Beach! Parking is 2 Lev per hour, quite expensive.

    Traditional wooden houses
    We took a one-day trip from Burgas (35kms) and visited this nice town, which is the oldest settlement on the coast of the Black Sea. The Old Town consists of 200 traditional wooden houses. They were built between the middle of 18-19th century. They are two-three storey buildings. We walked in the narrow streets and enjoyed the special vibe.

    Lovely, friendly place with plenty of places to eat out.
    The old town is the place to go for restaurants and shops or just a wander at night. Mainly Bulgarian tourists with a few Brits and Germans. All ages are catered for, there are even play parks for kids. There are stalls selling locally made jewelry and pottery, street musicians and buskers creating a really nice atmosphere. As you walk up the slight hill to the old town proper, the street surface becomes old stone blocks which are.a little uneven in places, wear sensible shoes. During the day try a walk around the marina followed by an ice cream treat (excellent) from street vendors in the town and sit and watch the world go by.

A very peaceful (compared to the other towns), bust compact preserved old city with easy walking routes and nice atmosphere. You don't see modern buildings much and can enjoy the view onto the sea. I find it even nicer than Nessebar.

There are a few ruins with a little info about them but much has just been left to crumble and become derelict. Not as busy as Nesebar and the old traditional buildings can be seen. Worth a walk just to say you have been there

We were in a daily trip around Sozopol and we spent a few hours in the center, inside the walls. Nice place , full of shops, some small museums and good restaurants. At a bit more than one hour by bus from Sunny Beach, recommended!!

Compared to Nesebar, Sozopol has not much to offer except its beautiful houses constructed of stone on the ground floor and wood on the first floor. Otherwise it has no beautiful ancient churches unlike in Nesebar,
