The town of Obzor is an ancient settlement with numerous architectural findings, ceramic fragments, remains of fortress walls, etc. The ancient Greeks called the town Heliopolis (town of the sun). Its origin can be seen in a small park lined with columns and statuary fragments from a Roman temple to Jupiter. The Romans also built a fortress in the vicinity to protect their sea trading routes between the Danube river and Constantinople. Kozyak fortress was constructed nearby by the Medieval Bulgarians.
South of Obzor, a highway courses for 14 km through open vineyards and wooded Balkan mountain range to Cape Emine that overlooks the Bay of Nessebar. The stormiest cape in Bulgaria features a lighthouse, a monastery and ruins of a medieval fortress. But today, the only remaining structure is a deserted church. The nearby hamlet of Emona had a Thracian sanctuary and, later, a temple to Jupiter.
