Nessebar is one of the major seaside resorts on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast located about 30km north-east from Burgas. The ancient part of the town, often referred to as the "Pearl of the Black Sea", is situated on a peninsula (previously an island) connected to the mainland by a narrow man-made isthmus and is a rich city-museum defined by more than three millennia of ever-changing history. The original Thracian settlement Menebria was called Mesembria by the Ancient Greeks. Under this name it was still known till the Middle Ages. Nessebar bears evidence of occupation by a variety of different civilisations over its existence. Its abundance of historic buildings prompted UNESCO to include Nessebar in its list of World Heritage Sites in 1983.

Nessebar is a one of the most prominent tourist destinations and seaports on the Black Sea, in what has become a popular area with several large resorts. The largest - Sunny Beach - is situated immediately to the north of Nessebar.

I spent my holidays just on SunnyBeach this year and as usually - one of my RC photo-models had to travel with me there. Original size of the pictures is 11 megapixels. Click to display reduced size 1920x1080 pixels.
