Pomorie

It is in the midst of a vast expanse, situated on a small peninsula, looking out on the sunrise, where the sunny Black sea town named Pomorie can be found. The ancient settlement of Anchialo was established as a Greek colony at the end of the fifth century BC. A large part of its inhabitants were Thracians. Today it stands before us as a modern town, keeping in itself now that same history and glory it had many centuries ago.

The town of “white gold”, obtained using the same age-old technology, the town known for its wine and music, the town that has outlived the centuries…

Repeatedly burnt down and built again, Pomorie keeps in its lands the memories of Thracians, Romans and Byzantines, crusaders and Turks. Standing before our eyes are the witnesses of that history: The Thracian Domed Tomb, the ancient city Ulpia Anhealeon Paleocastro (occupying part of Pomorie today), the Architectural Reserve “Old Pomorie Houses” and the exhibits of the Archaeological Museum. In 1934 the ancient name of Anchialo was changed to Pomorie. Christianity appeared here as early as the end of the first century, and the story goes that in the seventh century there already existed a monastery named after St. George the Martyr. That is why, every year, on 6th May, a solemn service is held and respects are paid, followed by a three-day fair which gathers worshipers from all over Thrace. St. George monastery in Pomorie is one of the most revered monasteries in Eastern Bulgaria and 6th May is the Day of Pomorie.

The town of Pomorie is situated some 11 km north of the center of the regional city of Burgas and only 7 km away from the international airport. The beach line is 7 km long and it includes 3 differentiated beaches. The average annual sunshine here is the longest and can reach up to 2360 hours a year. As the town is situated on a peninsula, 2 km cut into the sea, Pomorie has cool summers and mild winters. Before the sun rises, the air is saturated with ozone and negative ions, ultraviolet rays and iodine vapours, which has a healing effect on upper respiratory tract infections. The sand is rich in iron oxides and salts and, since it is heated up to 60° C, it is suitable for sunbathing. Water warms up to 20 – 28° C and is perfect for healing procedures for both children and adults.

 

Among the most interesting attractions of the town is The Pomorie Lake. The lake is a super-salty lagoon with an area of 760 hectares. Part of the bottom is covered by healing mud. More than 20 procedures for the treatment of various diseases are applied in the health resorts of the town. The greatest value of the lake, though, is in its ornithological diversity. You can relish the sight of low flying pelicans and white stork. The Pomorie Lake is part of the Via Pontica migratory route. More than 250 000 migrating geese, pelicans and other birds fly over it every autumn. The population of birds spending winter here reaches 10 000.

 

    The following natural landmarks, interesting both as objects of science and as tourist attractions, are situated on the territory of Pomorie Municipality, too:

  • The Koriyata Area - a natural site with an area of 2 hectares, the only age-old oak forest remaining to this day.
  • The Chairite Area – a protected site with an area of 2 hectares, which has considerable resources of the protected swamp snowdrop (Leucojum aestivum).
  • Dobrovanski Gabi – unique rock formations on a territory of 5 hectares, resembling mushrooms.

 

In 1998 the town was awarded the Blue Flag award. It is a European ecology award granted for clean and safe beaches and yacht ports. This is just a fragment of the charming little town.
