20 km north of Burgas at the end of the bay, Pomorie was founded by the ancient Greeks under the name Anchialos, probably 4th or 5th century BC. Like most of the ancient cities on the Black Sea it too has seen its fair share of turbulence over the centuries. In 1934 it changed to its present day Bulgarian name. These days the town is known as a spa town - mainly because of the curative mud and lye baths at Lake Pomorie, the northernmost of the Burgas lakes. Pomorie is home to the Black Sea winery which produce excellent quality wines and brandy, so be sure to try some local wine. Pomorie boasts the only Salt Museum in Eastern Europe, where you can not only see how salt is being won from the sea but also gain lots of additional information about the history of salt and the region. Via special cameras you can also watch the birdlife in the salt pans on large screens in the museum (open daily during the summer months 08:00 - 18:00)
