On the photo, which serves an illustration of the article, you can see bus station in the old part of Pomorie. At first glance it looks like a few stalls and exchanger, but it is a real bus station or a bus terminal.
In fact, there are two bus stations in Pomorie – in the old part and in the new. This article will discuss what these bus stations are, what schedules they offer and how much the tickets will be.
Where are the bus stations and bus stops in the town of Pomorie?
The bus station situated in the old town is better equipped. There are cash desks (which works up to 5 hours, it seems) and even a man who tells visitors, how is it better to get anywhere they want (although from ordinary vew when standing, everything is clearly seen). Next to the station there is a great market selling cheap seasonal fruits and even a fountain for washing them. This bus station is called “Поморие център”
The bus station in the new city is much more modest. It is more like an ordinary stop. On the other hand, much more buses stop over here and ticket prices can be lower. For example, a ticket to Nessebar is 3 levs while at a bus station from the old city, a ticket costs 3.5 levs.
Bus stations of Pomorie on a map
Finding a bus station in Pomorie is not as difficult as in other cities. The bus stations are both marked on the map to make finding them a lot easier.
If you plan to see the Monastery of St. George, we advise to choose a bus to the new part of the city (on the mainland). But you must remember that it is in a residential area – to the main attractions of Pomorie you will have to walk for about forty minutes under the hot sun (on the isthmus between the island and the mainland there is almost no shade, so bring your umbrella or wear a wide-brimmed hat).
If you want to take a walk through the beautiful city to visit Lake Pomorie (there is a healing black mud, and swans with pelicans in the wild), or to swim in the water at a wild beach – it is easier to do this by choosing a bus station in the old part of the city.
Be sure to note that the majority of buses that go through Pomorie to Burgas, they do not stop in the old town and do not go through it.
Where we advise to go from Pomorie?
Pomorie is a great option for a guided excursion program as well as Nessebar. You can visit Burgas, Nessebar and Varna easily. Balchik, in our view, is already far away. In view of the change of buses you will have to travel for about four hours there and also four hours back.
Theoretically, you can visit Sozopol, but one of our acquaintances aptly said: “Sozopol is like Nesebar, but three times worse.” You can also visit Ravda or Aheloy.
If you plan to for a fun and wild night life at Sunny Beach, think in advance how you will come back. Buses do not go in Bulgaria at nights. And taxi from Sunny Beach will cost at least 100 levs. It requires a diligent and creative bargaining with the taxi driver, so good luck with that.
A bus timetable from Pomorie and back for 2016
The bus timetable in Pomorie (and back) is not 100% precise. There is no a significant part of routes, especially in the case of small irregular carriers. You can use it for reference only – to select a city of departure and arrival, to learn a schedule and approximate cost trip. This will help you to plan independent excursions around Bulgaria.
