Photographer's Note

Nessebar (often transcribed as Nessebar and sometimes as Nessebur) is an ancient city and one of the major seaside resorts on the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast. Often referred to as the “Pearl of the Black Sea”. Nessebar is a rich city-museum defined by more than three millennia of ever-changing history. The small city exist in two parts separated by a narrow man-made isthmus with the ancient part of the settlement on the peninsula (previously an island), and the more modern section on the mainland side. The older part bears evidence of occupation by a variety of different civilizations over the course of its existence.

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

Nessebar has on several occasions found itself on the frontier of a threatened empire, and as such it is a town with rich history. Due to the city's abundance of historic buildings, UNESCO came to include Nessebar in its list of World Heritage Sites in 1983.
