About Obzor

The little town of Obzor is a true paradise, situated on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast, perfectly suitable for family tourism due to the tranquility and unique climate that it offers.

Situated at the foot of the largest mountain in the country, Stara Planina, at the mouth of the river Dvoinitsa, Obzor has a unique combination of sea and mountain. Its placement is great because it's located a short distance from the sea centers of Bulgaria, Burgas (53 km) and Varna (75 km). Nearby are the wild beaches, Irakli close to Cape Emine (11 km south) and Karadere (7 km north), popular with wildlife lovers.

The town impresses with a long beach, the longest on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast (14 km.). There are restaurants and water attractions along the central beach, and for those who want privacy, there are some quiet spots, away from the central part. For those who enjoy walks in the mountains there is an eco trail that reveals beautiful panoramic views of Obzor, whose route passes through a small waterfall and a wide sunny meadow, very suitable for picnics, with built-in BBQ and swing for kids.

Obzor is famous for its rich history dating back three whole millennia. This fact places him among the most ancient Bulgarian seaside settlements. The Thracians settled first in these lands in 510 BC, migrating from the colony of Mesembria, known as present-day Nessebar. They gave the village the name Navloch. After them the Greeks settle here. They rename Navloch to Heliopolis (from greek "Sun City"). Over the centuries, Obzor has borne various names that together describe its unique character.

When the Romans conquered these lands, a strong-walled fortress was erected in place of Heliopolis, playing an important role along the Pontian Road from Byzantion, which crossed the Strandja Mountains off the Black Sea and connected Anhialo (Pomorie) with the lands north to the Danube. They named their city Theopolis ("God's City") or Templum Jovis ("Jupiter Sanctuary"). The remains of the Jupiter Temple still lie beneath modern buildings, and fragments of it can be found in Central city park. In Byzantine times the town was named Kozyak. Later (16th century AD), the Turks renamed it Goseken, translated from the Turkish "Nice View".
