The city of Pomorie is perhaps one of the most ancient cities on the territory of Bulgaria. It is located on a small rocky peninsula in the middle of the road between Burgas and KK Sunny Beach. It was established under the name Anchialo in the 5th century BC as a Greek colony of Sozopol.
The beaches of Pomorie are suitable for swimming, and the sand is fine and black. Pomorie also stands out as an attraction center for year-round balneological and spa tourism. The climatic conditions are extremely favorable – long sunshine, up to 2360 hours a year, the average July air and water temperature is 23.6 degrees Celsius. In the morning, before sunrise, the air is rich in ozone and negative ions, in ultraviolet rays from iodine, released in a gaseous state by seaweed. The beach is about 5 km long, with an average width of 30 m. It is covered with dark sand, which is why it strongly absorbs the sun’s rays, which favors the faster acquisition of a sun tan. Its color is due to the higher content of iron and manganese.
The seabed has a small slope, which is why the sea is comfortable for swimming. Slow cooling of the sea water causes a warm and long autumn.
Once you come to Pomorie, you must visit the unique Salt Museum in the city, as well as the Municipal History Museum, which has preserved Pomorie’s rich 2,500-year history.
Other attractions are the men’s monastery of St. George, the Church of the Transfiguration of the Lord, the Thracian cupola Grobnitsa, as well as the architectural reserve of Old Pomorie Houses.
The proximity of Pomorie to two other ancient settlements, monuments of culture such as Nessebar and Sozopol provide its guests with the opportunity to touch the antiquity, as well as to discover the attractions of these unique tourist centers. Lovers of the dynamics of the modern pulse of life can visit the largest Bulgarian Black Sea KK Sunny Beach.
