A bit of history.
In ancient times, there was a cultural center of Ancient Greece, the city of Heliopolis, which is translated from Greek as “City of the Sun” or “Sun City”. Later Heliopolis became part of the Roman Empire, thanks to which it flourished architecturally and “infrastructurally”. The Romans built schools and libraries here, erected temples, and erected fortress walls. During this period, the Greek and Roman intelligentsia, poets, artists, and writers came here.
In addition, Heliopolis was an important trade and strategic point on the way from Western Rome to Eastern Constantinople. After the fall of Rome, Heliopolis was conquered by the Turks and became part of the Ottoman Empire, at first under the name of Güzlu “beautiful”, and later in the 16th century the city was called Gezken “beautiful view”. The city was under the Turkish yoke until the middle of the 19th century, when the Russian Empire conquered the Balkans, and the city became part of the Bulgarian state, receiving its final name, Obzor in 1935.
Obzor, with a population of two thousand people, is located between the Gulf of Nasebar and the mouth of the Dvoinitsa River. So walking along the picturesque streets of this little “Bulgarian Italy”, which are buried in vineyards and peach trees, talking with friendly, welcoming locals, is a separate pleasure for visitors. You can stay here in small family hotels, rent a cottage or a house, or settle comfortably in the private sector.
