WHERE IN BULGARIA ARE YOU?
It may be one of Bulgaria's most commercialised resorts, but this small town on the Black Sea coast is deserted in the winter months, and we strongly recommend you visit in February to avoid the summertime crowds.
Connected to the mainland via a slender (artificial) isthmus, its "Old Town" is a beautiful spot with plenty of wooden Greco-Ottoman houses and a unique collection of late Byzantine churches. It is rich in history, and is mentioned in plenty of legends in various contexts. Probably the most famous of these are about the Argonauts, who stopped over in their quest for the Golden Fleece, and the Amazons, those wild tribeswomen who terrorised the area around what the Greeks at the time referred to as the Axeinos, the Inhospitable Sea. You are likely to find the sea rather hospitable, however.
