Photographer's Note

The windmill, built in the middle of XVIII century, is the symbol of the Old town of Nessebar. The town is located on a small peninsula in the Black Sea wich is linked with the land only by a long and narrow isthmus. It has existed for more than 3,000 years. It emerged as a fortified Thracian settlement (the Tracians gave the town its original name Messimbria), afterwards it was a Greek polis, then a Roman colony. In the 1956 the town was announced an architectural and archeological reserve of UNESCO. Now has 2 parts - the Old Town and the New Town.
