Antique Beehive Tomb in Pomorie

The Antique Beehive Tomb is located west of the town of Pomorie, near the road Pomorie – Burgas. The tomb dates back to the 2nd – 3rd century AD. It is believed to have served as a heroon (mausoleum) of a wealthy Anchial family in which religious pagan rituals were carried out.
The tomb consists of a 22 m long corridor (dromos) and a circular chamber with a diameter of 11.60 m and a height of 5.50 m. It is made of stone and bricks. The tomb is arched with a semi-cylindrical vault in the center of which there is a hollow column with a diameter of 3.30 m, which extends upwards and merges with the outer wall. From the inner wall of the hollow column there was a spiral stone stair that led to the surface of the mound. There are five niches in the tomb of the tomb, in which the dead of the dead were placed. The walls are supposed to have been painted, but visitors can see only traces of green plaster today.
The tomb is the only one on the Balkan Peninsula. Its architecture and design impress us today with the perfect performance. Many architects from all over the world study the tomb to unravel the mystery of her mushroom dome.

Monasteries and churches in Pomorie

The St. George Monastery was founded in the 7th century AD by Byzantine settlers. As many other religious centers, the Monastery was burned down and destroyed by the Ottoman invaders. The present construction was built in 1856. There are not many wall-paintings because of the relatively new architecture of the temple, but the precious icons from 17th and 19th are attracting a lot of visitors. The Temple of St. George is the only male monastery in Southeast Bulgaria which still operates.
