Obzor - Bulgaria

Obzor - Bulgaria
Obzor town lies on the skirts of the eastern part of the Stara Planina Mountain with the mountain ridge rising to the west of the city and the Dvoynitsa River bounding it to the north. The long beach by the town extends from the St. Atanas cape to the north to the southern Mona Petra cape to the south. The town's beach is followed by a small nestling cove and a beach named Irakli after an ancient village.

The beach of Obzor has been developed over the last three years and now offers an excellent selection of bars, cafes and restaurants, and the large hotels can offer daytime visitors a great range of spa, health and beauty treatments if you are in the mood to pamper yourself.

The town of Byala, which once hosted an ancient Greek fortress, is situated not far to the north of Obzor. In addition, the village of Emona at the Emine cape, is located a few kilometers to the south of Obzor. Emona is a picturesque settlement, famous for being the birthplace of the Thracian king Rez.

The origins of the town, which the ancient Greeks knew as Heliopolis ("town of the sun"), can be seen in the small park which is lined with columns and statuary fragments from a Roman temple to Jupiter which once graced the spot. The Romans also built a fortress in the vicinity to protect their sea trading routes between Constantinople and the Danube. Medieval Bulgarians constructed their own Kozyak fortress nearby.
