In year 812 AD khan Krum conquered the town and Bulgarians and Slavs settled. In the 12th and 13th century AD the town developed active trade relations with the lands of the Mediterranean and Adriatic seas, and also the principalities north of the river Denube. The churches “St. Stephan” and “St. John the Baptist” were build and decorated in the 11th and the 12th centuries which became the prototype of the later build masterpiece churches in Nessebar between the 13th and the 14th centuries. There are a lot of houses from the era of the Bulgarian Renaissance in Nessebar.
