Other sights in Sozopol
- Sort by:
Housed in a scruffy concrete building on a lane running down to the port, this museum is a little disappointing given Sozopol’s long and rich history, but the artefacts and dry English texts at least give you some insight into the town’s past. Anchors, amphorae and pottery take up most of the space, including some painted 5th-century-BC vases, tableware imported from Greece and terracotta figurines of actors unearthed at the Apollonia necropolis, on Harmanite Beach.
Scarcely bothered by the passing tourists, this museum occupies a typical old wooden house and holds an exhibition of provincial costumes, jewellery and household knick-knacks, as well as a display of old photographs of Sozopol. It’s worth a quick look, though the historic house itself is probably of most interest.
