History

Hotels

Obzor is situated in a cove between the St. Athanasius Cape and the Emine Mount, by the mouth of the Dvoynitsa River. There are no large industrial enterprises within 50 km away from the town, and owing to this fact it is an exceptional place with landscape combining in a magnificent manner seaside and mountainscape. Obzor is a peaceful and quiet seaside resort with a 10-km long beach, forests, spa and beautiful scenery.

It is situated on the -79 international motorway. The nearest airports are those of Bourgas - 60 km away, and Varna - 70 km away. The town of Varna is 60 km away, and the town of Bourgas 75 km away, whereas the nearby resort of Sunny Beach and the town of Nesebar are only 37 km away.

The favourable location of the town was appreciated by the ancient Greeks who founded the colony of Navloch in this place. During the period of the Roman Empire the fortress of Heliopolis (Town of the Sun) was erected. Some remnants of a temple of Jupiter, some Roman baths and a water conduit can still be seen. Here lay the border between Bulgraria and Byzantium, there was a protective bank and the fortress was called Kozyak.

The development of Obzor as a resort started in 1925, when the first summer villas and holiday homes were built. Nowadays the town's guests can opt for the mountain or the seaside. The beach is about 10 km long and 60 m wide. The sand is finely grained and golden in colour. The mountainous area beside the town with its spas is the ideal place for outings, walks, picnics, children's games.

Obzor affords facilities for student recreation. It has a football playground, a tennis court, sports playgrounds. During the high season, cultural and sports events take place. In the end of July, the traditional Neptune Festival is held. The Culture Centre organizes a host of different cultural programs in which outstanding Bulgarian actors take part.

The town of Obzor is constantly developing and changing. New hotels, attractive places of entertainment and recreation are built. The rapid modernisation of facilities, as well as the hospitality and initiative of its citizens are the prerequisites for the town to be an exceptional and unforgettable holiday destination.
