General information about Pomorie
Pomorie is situated on a peninsula 18 km north-east of Burgas, and 408 km east of Sofia. The town is the third largest on the Black Sea coast after Varna and Burgas. There used to be a Thracian settlement here colonized by the Greeks in later times. A colony of the metropolis of Messembria was founded here in 5th century BC. The main occupation was fishing, mining and trading of sea salt. The shallow firth presented ideal conditions for that – it was where the first settlers discovered layers of salt in the sand. The ancient town was situated further inward onto the land in the area called Paleokastro where one can see its ruins scattered all over. It suffered barbarian invasions and in 8th century it was rebuilt by the Byzantine empress Irina. The town was intermittently under Bulgarian and then Byzantine domination It fell under Ottoman rule in 1453. After the Liberation the town regained its power but in 1906 the town burst in fire and nearly burnt down. It is known as a salt-mining centre; fruits and vegetables grow here; wine and tin productions are traditional for the place. Today the main occupation of its inhabitants is tourism. The mud-cure lake was discovered in 3th-4th centuries BC and was later called the Holy Lake by Anna Komnina (a Byzantine female writer). The first mud-cure establishment was built here in 1902 after the curing properties of mud unique for Europe had been proved. The mud is good for bone and muscular disorders, radiculitis, rheumatism, sciatica, lumbago, discal hernia, etc. Interesting sights are the old churches – the Transfiguration Church (dating back to 18-19th centuries has a valuable iconostasis and icons) and the Assumption Church (19th century). A stone bas-relief of St. Georgi is preserved in the St. Georgi the Victorious Monastery of Pomorie. A domed tomb-mausoleum (3th-4th century) was found in the area of Kouhata Mogila near Europa Camping.
