This article discusses about the prices for stay, accommodation, food and souvenirs at the Bulgarian resort of Pomorie. Note that Pomorie is not only an ordinary resort, but also a health resort of Bulgaria.
Holiday in Pomorie – why this resort is better than others
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. There are lots of festivals here which mostly consist of 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 of Pomorie is located on the mainland, where you can find luxurious 5-star hotels, which, as expected, are insanely expensive!
There are spots that are worth seeing in Pomorie. These include the monastery and the Old City.You can also visit the Museum of Salt and the Historical Museum in the old part of the city, as well as a famous brandy company.
Shopping in Pomorie
Shopping in of Pomorie is definitely a good idea. There are a lot of choices like Burgas, but everything is much cheaper. Here is an example: a set of cosmetics Bulgarian Rose on the main street of Pomorie costs about 7.5 levs, while in Nessebar and Burgas costs from 10 to 15 levs, depending on the place of purchase.
Everything else such as clothing, food, fruits, souvenirs as well as eating out at restaurants — are cheaper in Pomorie than in any other resort towns in Bulgaria. If you are about to buy a lot of souvenirs to take back home, we highly recommend Pomorie.
Prices for souvenirs in Pomorie
Souvenirs in Pomorie are considerably cheaper than souvenirs in other resort towns of Bulgaria. In most cases the price difference is about 30%, and that is very good.
As for buying made-in-Bulgaria products, we would like to recommend:
- A variety of cosmetics made of Bulgarian rose (prices start at 3 levs).
- Bulgarian spices and herbs, which cost much less than ours – 35g glass container of spices cost 0.84 lev.
- Lace tablecloths which Bulgarian pensioners knit and sell on sidewalks.
- Good quality silver jewelry (average price per gram is 10 levs).
Of course, the list of interesting souvenirs is not over, but buying these things makes sense when you go to Bulgaria.

Prices for clothing in Pomorie
In Pomorie there are quite a lot of clothing stores. They trade mainly imported Turkish things, a lot of imitations of brands at low prices.
It is good to know that 3 out of 4 (75%) of the clothing stores in Pomorie are geared for women.
We have stayed in Bulgaria during the end of August and the beginning of September. During the summer, most of the best items were sold out and we had to be satisfied with leftovers. Here are the approximate prices for clothes:
- Shirts with long and short sleeves cost 26 levs;
- Quite good jeans cost 30-35 levs;
- Light sweater costs about 30 levs;
- A tie costs at least 10 levs.
Everybody recommends to go to Burgas for shopping, as it is reputed to be the “shopping mecca” in Bulgaria. While the choices there are wider and more varied, the prices are otherwise high. There are also a lot of counterfeits. So for us, don’t go to Burgas — we don’t recommend it.
In the Internet is often recommended to go for shopping to Burgas. The choice there is really much bigger, but the prices are high, and quite a lot of fakes. So we would not recommend to our friends shopping in Burgas.
