Pomorie is one of our favorite Bulgarian resorts. If we had decided to visit Bulgaria again, we would definitely choose Pomorie.

The town is very quiet and peaceful, oriented not only at tourists, but also at local residents. The prices here are much lower, than in Sunny Beach or Nessebar.

The city has a lot of parks, are constantly held various festivals, hither are arrive folk ensembles and singing groups.

Beaches in Pomorie are also very good, we especially liked a wild beach on the foreland with an amazingly clear water and almost no extraneous people.

As in Nessebar, the old part of the city lies on a small peninsula. The new part Pomorie is located on the mainland, where are constructed luxurious 5 star hotels. Do not believe me? We passed by behold this hotel (beautiful and insanely expensive):
