While the Old Town itself lacks extensive modern facilities, its proximity to the larger urban area of Nesebar ensures base camps can be easily established nearby. Temporary setups for storage and crew can be accommodated with appropriate planning.

Risk factors

Consideration must be given to the preservation of the area's cultural heritage. The cobblestone streets may be challenging for equipment transport, and specific permissions are required for commercial filming to protect the site.
