When exactly Pomorie was founded is hard to determine. The recently discovered remains of an ancient village (year 3100) are flooded and it is hard to be studied. There is written data, that in the middle of VI century B.C. Apollonians built at the northern end of the Burgas Bay Frurion Anhialos. The exact location of this fortress is currently unknown, but it implies the hypothesis that it was located in the sea southeast from today's city in a region called gremism (ruin).
Anhialos is one of the many cities on the Balkans which was concurred by the Ottomans. On the 30th of July 1906, Anhialos is in ruins. The city recovers difficultly but not his signature image of a wonderful city with "wooden houses, nested on a bare hill" (A. Strashimirov, 1901). In 1934 Anhialos was renamed to Pomorie. Until today the city is developed as an important salt producer, wine and other agricultural works, main republican centre for balneological treatment.
