Photographer's Note

The town of Nessebar is one of the oldest towns in Europe. The town was established more than 3200 years ago. Thracians settled there at the end of the Bronze Age. They called it Melsambria, which meant the town of Melsas – that was probably the name of the founder of the settlement. At the beginning of the 1st century AD the town became part of the Roman Empire and in 812 the town became part of the First Bulgarian Empire. The Slavs who settled there called it Nesebar. The town flourished under the rule of Tsar Ivan Alexander (1331 - 1371) – many new churches were built, culture and religion developed.
In the picture you can see the ruins of the city walls from the Roman period.
