Google Earth Pomorie

Pomorie situated on a peninsula projecting 5 km into the sea has clean beaches covered with soft sand.

The peninsula is 18 km north-east from Burgas, and 408 km east from Sofia. Before entering Pomorie one passes through a long and narrow isthmus between the sea and the firth.

The firth of Pomorie borders the peninsula and this gives the impression of jutting out into it.

A Thracian settlement was located on the place of Pomorie, later colonized by the Greeks.

A colony of the metropolis of Messembria was founded here in 5th century BC. Pomorie was called Anhialo being at the same time a colony of Apolonia as well.
