In the course of salvaging archaeological excavations, organized by the National Museum of History, at the centre of Sozopol, on the territory of the national Ancient Town of Apollonia Archaeological Reserve, some grand architectural remains from the facade defensive wall of Apollonia Pontica were discovered, along with the main entrance of the fortress. Very impressive ruins of the wall were preserved. They reached heights of up to 12.50 m., and thus Sozopol Fortress appeared to be among the best preserved fortresses on the Bulgarian lands.
The discoveries, funded by the National Museum of History and Sozopol Foundation, offer to the citizens of Sozopol and to its guests another attractive cultural landmark, which reveals big part of the town’s history. The site is to be appropriately reformed into a tourist destination through conservation and restoration, and through public works under the project, and accessible environment is to be ensured for people with specific needs.
