Sozopol is the oldest of Bulgaria's coastal towns. Founded in 610 BC by Miletian Greeks, their colony of Apollonia thrived as a middleman between the Greek world and the indigenous Thracians. Today, this charming place is a popular tourist resort best known for its casual ambiance, two sandy beaches, and distinctive nineteenth-century stone and wood houses, some 45 of which are designated national cultural monuments. While Sozopol is a bustling place during July-August, in the off-season it reverts back to a sleepy fishing village and is a favored haunt of artists, writers and other contemplative types. A stroll along the old town's twisting, narrow cobblestone lanes reveals a host of National Revival-era houses, their stone foundations and overhanging upper stories of weathered wood topped by Mediterranean-style red-tiled roofs. Sea-facing Morski Skali and Milet streets are lined with small restaurants and cafes, ideal for taking in the views while digging into a plate of tasty locally-raised midi (mussels). Notable sights in the old town include the 17th-century Sveta Bogoroditsa (Holy Virgin) Church, built partly below ground in accordance with prevailing Ottoman dictates. Also, Sozopol's archaeological museum features a collection of amphorae, stone anchors, and model ships representative of the Phoenicians, Cypriots and other ancient mariners who sailed into Apollonia harbor. Relative to the old town, the new town is somewhat colorless although it does feature the better of Sozopol's two beaches, located on the southern side of the Harmanite ("threshing floor") headland. There are a number of cafes and thumping discos on the main drag, Republikanska street, and along the beach strip.
