Sozopol is at its most lively during the summer period that runs from Spring until Autumn. Temperatures tend to reach the high 20s throughout these summer months. Prices are usually a little bit cheaper outside of these months from Autumn to Spring as temperatures begin to drop off. This off-season might be the ideal time to visit if you want to check out some of the hiking trails outside of the intense sun of summer. However, most of the tourist activities take place during the summer months so we recommend a visit within this period.
Visitors to the region can find two main sites that are worth exploring: the town’s archeological museum and art gallery. Excavations in 2010 unearthed some holy relics of St. John the Baptist and there are many other fascinating artifacts and exhibitions to see here. The beaches are Sozopol’s other main attraction.
