ancient village Anhialo was formed in VI-V century BC, as a Hellenic colony on the Black Sea Coast. Its strategic location
near important roads determined its prosperity, and its proximity to a salt lake determined the development of the ancient
craft - salt-producing. The sea gave charm to another ancient craft - fishing, and the wine-growing remained from the Bacchus
pilgrims, although it is not certain if they were native Thracians or Hellenic settlers.

of Roman, Byzantine, Crusaders and Turkish raids, and the exhibits of the archaeological collections are silent witnesses to
them. In the years after the liberation from Ottoman oppression Pomorie kept and turned its ancient crafts into

If you go to Bulgaria, the medieval city of Nessebar
is a jewel and a must. It was founded as Messambria in the 6th century B.C. by Greek colonists and has been on the World Heritage
List of the UNESCO since 1983. Located on a small peninsula in the Black Sea the delightful tourist spot yearly attracts a
million visitors. A small street, which connects the peninsula with the mainland, leads through the narrow gateway in
the ancient fortress wall right to the quaint, tiny historic down town area with
numerous well preserved buildings (mainly mediaeval churches) and narrow cobbled lanes, winding amongst wooden houses of the
18th and 19th century. Nessebar's typical houses have stone foundations and broad, overhanging wooden superstructures.
Today the spirit of the ancient market lives on with
a multitude of sidewalk vendors, hawking all sorts of art work and tourist souvenirs, such as fine crochet works, knitwear,
pottery, wood-carvings, paintings... Idyllic restaurants on the steep coast or in the middle of the old town invite you to
rest. The most appealing are located on the peninsula's scenic southern tip.
