Obzor is a small town of 2000 people situated 62 km south of Varna and 70 km north of Bourgas, the resort has the longest beach of Black Sea resorts – 6 km. A few km to the south is where the Balkan Mountain ends into the sea – Cape Emine. During mediaeval times there was a fortress on the cape called Emona; the rocks were a home for many monks-recluses and there are a lot of chapels and small monasteries in the region. The town is rich in cultural relics from the past; the Thracians were the first people to inhabit the region. Homer writes about the people who used to live near Cape Emine in Iliad, the first work of European literature. According to the ancient Greek poem, a village close to Cape Emine was the home place of the Thracian King Rez, killed by Odyssey and Diomedes. The name of the town at that time was Heliopolis – town of the sun. Later in history, the town was conquered by the Roman Empire, I century BC. The Romans renamed the town to Teopolis (city of God) and build a temple of Jupiter, remains of which can still be seen in Obzor.
