Located 25 kilometers south of Bourgas on a scenic rocky peninsula, this fishing village (tourist resort) art colony is arguably the most charming place on the Black Sea coast and one of Bulgaria's crown jewels.
Founded in 610 b.c. by Ionian Greeks from Miletus and named Apollonia in honor of their most adored god, this was the first coastal Greek colony to be established. It was a thriving and important place, trading with parent Miletus, Athens, and the Isle of Rhodes. The Apollonians acted as middlemen between the Greek world and the indigenous Thracians from whom they acquired copper, honey, grain, and wood in exchange for wine, salt, and textiles. The colony reached its zenith during the 5th century b.c., which coincided with the height of power of the Thracian Odrisae tribe - many of whom gradually came to achieve rank and status in the Greek state. Apollonia in turn founded its own colony of Anchialo (present-day Pomorie) in order to prevent the powerful rival Dorian colony of Messembria (Nessebur) from penetrating into Bourgas bay.Today the area is a favored haunt of artists, writers, and other contemplative types. It also serves as a regular stop-over for tour groups from the large beach resorts as well as being a favored playground for Bulgarians. Consequently, it can get quite crowded and hectic during July and August. The small harbor is an interesting place to while away some time watching local fishermen bring in their small catches of popcheta, karagyoz, safrid and tsatsa, which they off-load to waiting buyers from area restaurants. The old town beach, nestled in a protected, horseshoe-shaped bay, generally offers shallower bathing and more amenities than the new town beach situated a kilometer or so to the south on the other side of the Harmanite (threshing floor) headland.
