Sit back and enjoy the scenery during a panoramic drive from Nessebur to the relaxed seaside town of Pomorie. The town was founded in the 4th century BC near the salty lake, which the ancient Thracians called "sacred" for its curative mud. The saltpans surrounding Pomorie Lake, one of Bulgaria's main sources of salt, are nowadays renowned for their therapeutic mud baths.
The Ancient Thracian Tomb of Pomorie dates back to the 2nd century AD and is remarkably well preserved. Step inside the vaulted tomb, which is recognized as a national cultural monument for its unique beehive construction.
The Salt Museum opened in 2002 and is the only specialised Museum in Bulgaria and Eastern Europe which presents the technology for producing salt by solar evaporation of sea water. As you walk around the Museum, you will see a unique collection of photographs from the 20th century, old topographical maps, models and authentic salt equipment and instruments.
If the Salt Museum has made you thirsty then a visit to the Wine Cellars of Pomorie should fix that. The Cellars were built in 1932 and are where famous Bulgarian wines mature.
Enjoy a tour of the Cellars and sample some wine, brandies and snacks as you are entertained with some traditional Bulgarian folkloric music and dancing.
This excursion will operate by coach and on foot. There is approximately 1½ hours of walking on the tour. There are ten steps at Pomorie Wine Cellars and three steps with gravel ground at the Thracian Tomb.
