    Fishmarket in Nessebar

    by timada Updated Oct 13, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From Marieta Palace Hotel we walked to old Nessebar about 15 min. First arriving in old Nessebar we saw the fishermen in the wright part of the road . They were selling all kind of fish products : plaice , cod - fish , salted fish , tin fish . Salted fish were hanging on and the wind rotated them with a considerable speed . Cats were all around trying to get some fish :-)

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The merchants from Old Nessebar keep their goods in some " wardrobes " front of their houses .You can see them all over the streets ! They open them every morning , when the tourists come , and close them in the night .

    The old town of Nessebar is known for it's ancient monasteries and lace making.Its cobbled streets and a lot of spots of hand made lace shopping make you feel in another century . Some ladies are making lace sitting on a chair right in front of their houses !

    A local woman at the doorstep

    Somehow every time I get the chance to witness old local women around the narrow streets, it's a special moment for me....Wondering what their life looks like... And I can't help making references with some photos I've seen from the greek islands of old fisherman or locals.

    Bulgarian Customs

    by Fen Written Nov 5, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Every year on the 1st of March, the Bulgarians give each other 'martenitsas' - small figures made of white and red threads, a symbol of the awakening, of spring, health and happiness.

    In late May and early June every year, the rose-picking season starts in the Valley of Roses which stretches between the Balkan Range and the Sredna Gora Mountains.Rose-picking starts at dawn, before sunrise and before the rose fragrance has had a chance to disappear. The Bulgarian oleaginous rose yields 70 percent of the world's attar of roses used by every well known perfume company as an essential component of its products. This is the time of the Festival of Roses, celebrated with carnivals, processions, folk songs and dances in Karlovo and Kazanluk on the first Sunday in June.

    The man with the banjo

    by desert_princess Updated Mar 18, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I only saw him once... First there were these notes in the air ,as I was climbing the stairs to the church. Than the music became distinctive, and as I entered - there he was , sitting on my right, playing a nostalgic melody on his banjo.
    I stood there and listened....than I talked to him. He was very nice and humble.
    He offered to sell me a hand made banjo by him for a reasonable price - a small copy of his own.He said he doesn't give it to everyone. I still have it home and it even makes sounds when you touch the strings:)) price for the memory - 12lv

    Alternative Restaurant Usages!

    by johngayton Written Feb 15, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant overlooking the bay to the north of the old town is obviously shut for the close-season. Its owner seems to have found a winter use for it though - enlarge the pic and you'll see what.

    Amazing the little things you notice when you've got a town all to yourself!

    Have a look at The Church of Christ Pantocrator. The best-preserved church at Nesebur, with its colorful exterior of red brick, white marble and glazed polychrome ceramic inlays. It currently houses an art gallery.

    Most of them sing and play different types of music trying to earn some extra money.

    The old man in the picture can be seen playing the bagpipes at the main gate of the old town.

    Fishing

    While strolling round Old Nesebar we saw this old fisherman mending his net. It was such a pleasant site that we had to stop and admire the work. He didn't seem to mind.
