map Ancient town of Sozopol

Sozopol is the oldest town on the Bulgarian Black Sea shores. The first settlement here dates back to the Bronze Age. Undersea explorations in the region of the port reveal relics of dwellings, ceramic pottery, stone and bone tools from that era. Many anchors from the 2nd and 1st millennium BC have been discovered in the town's bay, a proof of active shipping since ancient times. Later on, emigrants from Asia Minor of Greek origin founded the city of Apollonia, which grew to be the largest port on the Black Sea and established itself as cultural and trade centre.

Today, Sozopol is one of the popular sea-resort destinations in the country. It is attractive both with the cultural heritage and its golden sand beaches. The Renaissance architecture of the Old Town has been preserved creating a romantic atmosphere for its visitors. In 1961 г an archeological museum was founded in which the history of this ancient town is told by remarkable artifacts displayed in its hallways Ц collections of rock anchors, ceramics, amphora, coins and other products of ancient art.
