Abstract

The article offers a short overview of the underwater research in Bulgaria with special emphasis on investigations carried out in the Nesebar aquatory. The research has started in the late 1950s. A special attention is paid to the first Bulgarian diver-archaeologist – L. Ognenova.
The underwater investigations in Nesebar proved particularly instructive for both – the long-term transformation of the settlement from late prehistory to modern days and the coastal preservation. They were also an invaluable contribution to the listing of Nesebar in the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage since 6.12.1983.
