Intangible cultural heritage

The MP draws the attention also to the intangible dimensions of the historic urban landscape (not evaluated by 1983) that enrich and extend the content of its outstanding universal value:

  • urban traditions, holidays and customs, as the Epiphany (6th January); The Procession for health and well-being (11th May); The Day of bread (22nd June); The Day of Nessebar (the Assumption); the Day of St. Nicolas, etc.;

  • legends, as a manifest of the local folklore related mostly to the churches on the peninsula;

  • traditional living, crafts and skills, as fishing, boat building, local cuisine, production of wine, small home-made produce, etc.
