Sozopol is a place of much depth. It’s deep because of the sea; the town’s millennia old history, as well as the lives of its idiosyncratic inhabitants.
One such remarkable individual is the Doctor. He arrived in Sozopol in the late 1960s as a young military doctor, but soon became the emergency contact for all Sozopoli-ans. The locals came to love Dr Nanyu Manafov and helped him build his own home by the rocky beach. Yatros (or ‘Doc’ in Greek) as the locals would fondly call him, spent more than a decade in the small seaside town before moving to Sofia to contin-ue his medical career. Yet Sozopol would always remain his haven.
