Photographer's Note

The old town of Nesebar is located on a small peninsula, it is interesting that there are 41 churches (or ruins of churches).

In my photo you can see ruins of the St. Sophia Church.
St. Sophia Orthodox Church is located in the center of the ancient town. The church has a total length of 25.5 m and a width of 13 meters. It had formerly a two sloping roof which unfortunately has not survived to this day. The interior of the church was once painted with frescoes. The entire floor was covered with a mosaic made of small colored stones. The church was built in the late fifth and sixth centuries. Its present appearance dates back to the ninth century, when the church was rebuilt after being destroyed. The church was abandoned in the eighteenth century.
