Within 3 days Nessebar becomes the capital of love and wine. Dozens of couples from all over the country join the festival. The city welcomes them with a lot of love and crazy fun. The seventh edition of the most romantic Bulgarian festival proved that the tradition of summer resorts can be broken and turn a peninsula into an attractive destination all year round.

Love is the feeling that brings together in Nessebar couples in love, who came to the festival, which leads to the development of wedding tourism in the Black Sea town in the winter months. There is a specially designed wedding route for those who decide to get engaged here after a wedding ritual based on Homer’s verses.

All three days of the festival are full of romance and mood. The festival tent is traditionally built on Messambria Square in the Old Town, and the newlyweds take part in fun competitions. The trademark of the Nessebar love weekend is the competition in pairs “Love on pedals” and other competitions for lovers, such as the orienteering game and the “selfie”. Love hovers in the air of Nessebar during the festival, when couples in love roll up their sleeves and measure their skills in making cakes. Young couples learn about the secrets of love from sexologists or from Nessebar grandmothers, who give them special instructions about love herbs, potions and ritual breads. There is no lack of a rich cultural program.

The romantic ancient city is preferred by lovers. Many of them choose it as a place for their wedding, and the municipality makes special efforts to make their experience even more memorable. Nessebar is gaining more and more popularity as a place for wedding tourism. For the first time the Municipality of Nessebar united the traditional Bulgarian wine festival – Trifon Zarezan and the day of love – Valentine’s Day in February 2013. The festival gained popularity throughout the country and the event includes local business – hoteliers and restaurateurs who develop special offers suitable for young people.

The exact program of the festival is expected.
