Sozopol is one of the oldest Bulgarian towns. It is situated on several small peninsulas in the southern part of the Burgas bay. The first name of the town given to it by the Greek colonists at its creation is Anthea. It was later changed to Apollonia in honor of the ancient Greek god Apollo. From late antiquity, Apolonia is known as Sozopolis, translated from Greek "the city of salvation." From the antiquity to the XVII-th century, Sozopol is a thriving shopping center. It is known as a fishing and wine center and an important marketplace for grain from Thrace. The town evolved as an important church center with many medieval monasteries. With its cultural and historical past, with its preserved XVIII-th century architecture, its beaches and the annual Apollonia Arts Festival, today Sozopol attracts many tourists.
Medieval Sozopol was surrounded by a fortress wall and towers, built during the time of the Emperor Anastasius, about the year 511. They were used in the following centuries, and in many places they were rebuilt and built. Significant fragments of the fortification system, up to a height of 3-4 m, are preserved and can be seen today. Since 2003, the fortress walls have been reconstructed and preserved, revealing segments of the South Fortress Wall and the Watchtower.
Along with the South Fortress Wall, another symbol of Sozopol is the Architectural and Archaeological Reserve “Ancient Sozopol”. It covers over 180 residential buildings with authentic Renaissance architecture from XVIII-XIX century. With its first floor, built of stone and second floor of wood, the buildings are a typical representative of the Black Sea Renaissance houses. Some of them also have elements similar to the Renaissance houses of the Strandja and Stara Planina type of house construction.
From the archaeological point of view, the Thracian strongholds in the area of the Meden Rid (Copper Ridge) are of interest. The Meden Rid is a mountain ridge, encircling the arches and the low hills around Sozopol. In XIII-XII before Christ Thracians built a defensive line, consisting of strongholds on almost all the high peaks of the ridge. The most interesting are the fortresses of Mount Atia, Mount Bakarlaka, Lobodovo Kale and Malko Kale. On the heights of Meden Rid and the hills around the coastline there are many burial mounds with traces of the Thracian funerary rituals. In the past, their total number was about 1500. Today some of them have been archaeologically researched.
Sozopol is also famous for the Necropolis of the Ancient Apolonia Pontica, the most famous of which are the Necropolis in the Sea Garden and the Necropolis in the localities of Harmanite, Budjaka and Kalfata.
We recommend visiting the island of St. Ivan, where in 2010 was excavated the medieval monastery "St. John the Baptist" and found a reliquary with the inscription "John the Baptist".Get the full listing »
