What travellers are saying
- A small, simple, working monastery with 4 monks, but still beautiful and peaceful.
It won't take much time to see it all and English translations are scant, but we enjoyed it just the same.Written 13 August 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Pomorie Lake is a coastal lagoon separated from the sea by a natural sand spit and an additional artificial dike. The place is beautiful and the spit is good for a nice relaxing stroll which can bring you as far as the village of Aheloy. The spit is suitable for those who prefer secluded beaches but should not forget that it is not guarded.
The lake is also very good for bird-watching as it is on the Via Pontica route and lots of migratory birds from the whole of Europe can be observed.
The sand of the spit is black in color which is due to the healing mud extracted from the lake. The mud is unique, different from the kinds of healing mud found in other places around the world, very rich in sulfur and iron, and it heals so many diseases of the musculoskeletal system and the peripheral nervous system, skin diseases and diseases of the reproductive systems.Written 22 July 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- I found these few houses at the end of the village, near the fishing harbour. The old church is there too. I stumbled upon these houses by accident, and I was thrilled. People still live in these houses. It is a living part of history. I have visited Nessebar and Plovdiv houses in the past. I believe that these types of housing are in other parts of Bulgaria too.Written 19 May 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- I imagine this will be closing soon as hardly anyone there as unfortunately surrounded by empty hotels. We are used to going to waterparks with 200 plus people, we were one of 4 families and had the place to ourselves. Feel very sorry for those that work here as nobody is visiting. Such as shame as its a super park, really clean and some great rides. We felt like millionaires having the place to ourselves and going on slide after slide with no queues. Can't imagine it lasting the season which is a real shame. If you're in the area, please visit as it's a great park and they currently have 20% off to try and attract more visitors. Think they run several free buses too so look out for those.Written 19 June 2023

- The Ancient Beehive Tomb near Pomorie is one of the best preserved archaeological monuments of the late Roman Empire on Bulgarian lands. Scientists identify the monument as "heroon" and date it from the period II-IV c. Although the term "Thracian domed tomb" is also in use, the date of the monument, and especially the brick construction, characterizes it more as a Roman building and inside it wasn’t found traces of burials as well funeral urns. One cylindrical, hollow column with a height of 5.5 m and a diameter of 3 m. rises in the middle of the chamber expands mushroom-shaped toward the vault and merges into the walls of the hall. The camera is spacious about 12 meters in diameter and has five niches in its walls. It can be reached by a 22 m long corridor (dromos). Such a unique construction of rotunda with a majestic mushroom-shaped central column is known only from the Mausoleum of Emperor Maxentius on the Via Apia Antique in Rome, also known as the Tomb of Romulus in the name of his son Valerius Romulus who is buried there (Mausoleo di Massenzio o Tomba di Romolo). Maxentius himself suffered a defeat by Emperor Constantine the Great in the Battle of the Milvian Bridge and found his death probably in the waters of the Tiber. The incredible similarities of Bulgarian "tomb" to that of Rome make it even more unique as an archaeological site, bearing in mind the lack of other similarly preserved facilities from antiquity. This archaeological monument could be called a Roman mausoleum, even more so, that at the time of its dating the lands near Pomorie (Anhialo in antiquity) are completely Romanized as part of the Province of Thracia of the Roman Empire.Written 21 October 2018
- Interesting and inexpensive museum with various exhibits. Free WiFi and air conditioning with entrance fee family of six only costing £7. However, there were few English translations for exhibits.Written 13 August 2019
- After waiting to get in way after the opening time we had to knock on the door to get the mans attention to unlock the door. We paid to go upstairs on the viewing balcony and after approx an hour we were ushered out the building by the non english speaking man pointing at his watch. I have no idea why we had to leave as there is no mention on the signs of any time limit and it was way off closing time. Don't waste your money here, just view the lake from outside the building. We stood outside regularly as we were stopping in the area and many a time the doors were kept locked even when it was meant to be open, all seemed very ad hoc.Written 29 September 2019
- We had 45 minutes here which was just enough for a walk around. A typical market - cheap clothes and fake brands, honey, more honey, fruit and veg. Worth going but didn't buy anything except a Coke and a burger for 3.5 Lev.Written 5 September 2019
- As a group of alchohol consuming grownups we had great fun. Animators did a good job, were entertaining through the whole experienceWritten 26 July 2023
