Nicopolis ad Nestum (Ancient Greek: Νικόπολις ἡ περὶ Νέσσον) or Nicopolis ad Mestum is a ruined Roman town in the province of Thracia (Thrace) near to the modern village of Garmen on the left bank of the Mesta river, in Garmen Municipality, Bulgaria. Although "ad Nestum" is the more commonly used alternative, "ad Mestum" (which is what appears, in Greek, on the coins of the city) is the correct form of the name during the Roman period.

  • Got some great photos of the old Roman Fort. Will spend more time there when we are next out in Gotse Delchev.
  • Absolutely amazing. I really hope they get funding to uncover the whole place. Tickets are too cheap though - you can't be charging 1.5 euro for a guided tour through a city, which is two thousand years old.
