Short history

Sozopol is the oldest city on the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast. The first settlement here dates back to the end of the 4th and the beginning of the 3rd millennium BC. Undersea explorations in the region of the Sozopol port reveal relics of dwellings, ceramic pottery, stone and bone tools from the Bronze Age. In 610 BC, the Ancient Greeks established a Hellenic settlement (“polis”) and named it “Apollonia Pontica”. In 72 BC the town was conquered and plundered by the Romans, and the city wall was demolished. In 4th century the town blossomed again and became known as “Sozopolis” - Town of Salvation. Sozopol had been a traditionally Byzantine town and fortress, placed in the economic region related to the capital Constantinople. Only for a short time, Sozopol was included within the borders of the Bulgarian state, after Khan Krum’s conquest in 812.

Churches and many old-time houses dating to the 18 century are preserved today giving the unique architectural outlook of Sozopol nowadays. Ancient icons and magnificent wood-carved iconostasis represent the remarkable achievements of the arts at that time.
