POMORIE

The town of Pomorie is situated on a narrow, rocky peninsula, stretching out approximately 5 km into the sea, 20 km from Burgas and 18 km from Sunny Beach. The entrance to the town is by way of a long isthmus between the sea and the Pomorie Bay.
There was a Thracian settlement in this site near the salty lake, which was then considered sacred due to its curative powers. The settlement was later colonized by the Greeks and named Anhialo. Under the Roman rule, the town garnered greater glory than even Apolonia (Sozopol) for a long period. Its rise was interrupted by barbarian invasions during the 8th century. It was built up again by the Byzantine Empress Irene. The town passed from Bulgarian to Byzantine rule more than once, remaining more often in Bulgarian territory. It fell under Ottoman rule in 1453. It was restored After the Liberation and now holds primary significance in trade on the Burgas Bay.
