Nesebar is located on a small peninsula on the Black Sea coast between the cities of Varna and Burgas and is some 20 km away from Burgas international airport. Having been established around 3000 BC, it is one of the oldest towns in Europe. It is successor to the ancient Thracian town of Mesembria, which means the town of Melsa. Mesembria became part of Bulgaria in 705 AD by virtue of an agreement between the Bulgarian Khan Tervel and the Byzantine emperor Justin II. The churches and monuments in the old part of Nesebar are examples of the architectural and artistic influence of the Greek, Roman and Byzantine ages and attract thousands of pilgrims and tourists every year. This was the reason why Nesebar was included in the List of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage in 1983.
The climate is humid continental and it is strongly influenced by the Black Sea as well as the airflows coming from the Mediterranean. The temperature of the air rarely goes over 30°C – the average daily temperature during the summer months is 28°C. The average temperature of the sea water is 23°C without huge temperature fluctuations. The light breeze blowing from the sea makes the air fresher and the nights cooler.
