Sozopol (Bulgarian: Созопол, Greek: Sozopolis / Σωζόπολις) is an ancient seaside town located 35 km south of Burgas on the southern Bulgarian Black Sea Coast.

Sozopol is said to be the oldest town on the Bulgaria Black Sea coast dating back to the Bronze Age, with a very well preserved old town. A favourite place for artists, its bohemian atmosphere, cobbled streets and sandy beaches make it very crowded in the summer with tourists.
