SozopolThe town of Sozopol is among the most frequented and most beautiful Bulgarian resorts. It is located 32 km south of Bourgas, on a peninsula, connected by a narrow isthmus to the mainland, where the new part of the town has been built. The present-day look of Sozopol has been directly associated with the Apollonia Festivals of the Arts, annually organized in the month of September. Sozopol is one of the oldest Black Sea settlements in Bulgaria. It came into being during the 7th century B.C. as Apollonia. The ships of the flourishing commercial town traveled to the cities of Hellas, exporting wheat, honey and wax, hides and cattle, and importing Greek wine, olive oil, deluxe fabrics and exquisite works of art. In Antiquity the town was famous for the fact that as far back as in the year 520 B.C. it minted its own silver coins. In 330 Apollonia began to be called Sozopolis (Town of Salvation). In the quiet and protected bay, seafarers found here the dreamt of shelter. Some specialists associate the name Sozopol with the spread of Christianity in these lands. The intensive Black Sea trade turned the town into a busy centre. The buildings of that time were solid, which is evident to this day from the partially preserved walls along the southern coast of the peninsula.
