Obzor has a long history - once a Thracian settlement, it then became an ancient Greek town, known as Heliopolis ("town of the sun"), which was later transformed into a Roman city called Templum Iovis ("Temple of Jupiter"). Durring the Middle ages the place was dominated by fortress named Kozyak, which was then destroyed and during Ottoman rule, the town's new name became Gozeken. Recently the resort has been developing as a growing in popularity recreational resort with a number oh hotels, restaurants and entertainment facilities available. The ruins of the Kozyak Castle, and the remains of the Roman temple of Jupiter can be found on the hills over the town.
