Bulgaria is blessed with a stunning collection of up-and-coming resorts, but the most historic and relaxed setting you'll find among all the pearls along the Black Sea coast is at Nessebar.
Built around an old town which, with origins going back 9,000 years, certainly lives up to the name, Nessebar holidays will find you located on a small peninsula which seems a world away from the much faster-paced and more modern attractions of Sunny Beach, yet it's less than two miles distant.
The choice of accommodation on offer has been greatly expanded with the development of the New Town area, which has hotels offering Nessebar all-inclusive holidays, as well as catering for those looking for a more relaxed setting, who will find a Nessebar package holiday right up their street.
History-lovers will find a great deal to explore in the region's many ancient churches, of which Christ Pantokrator and St John the Baptist date back the furthest, to the 10th and 11th centuries. Despite their age, they are beautifully preserved, and excellent examples of the 'picturesque' style.
Heading into the old part of town on your Nessebar last-minute holiday, you'll find much of the old romantic ambience still intact, as you wander along narrow cobbled streets and discover tiny squares boasting stone lower floors with later levels built of wood.
Nestling among these are a sprinkling of gift shops, and just a handful of bars, meaning that the evenings on your Nessebar holiday will be perfectly relaxing.
For a more upbeat atmosphere, head towards the beach itself, where there's a greater concentration of bars and eating places to be found, ranging from quiet restaurants to more upbeat bars, and a few discos for those for whom holiday time means stretching out your days as far as you can.
If you want the trappings of a modern resort complete with every facility you could wish for, but you also want to keep all the hurly-burly at a respectable distance, then a holiday in Nessebar will be for you.
