    Bulgaria. Pomorie. Rather, in 5 steps from the sea. Entire neighborhoods of mansions on the waterfront. But we were in a sanatorium, where the hostess-Russian. Surprisingly, pleasant, almost family atmosphere. I have never seen; somehow heat, mentally. Do not confuse an abundance of people in wheelchairs, all positive. The food is delicious, the animator is active and tactful. In the morning all greet each other, smiling like a native. Very cool. The numbers, though, and shovels, but the sea in 5 steps, literally. The road passed swam, ran, shower room took on the breakfast and procedures. In September, few people, pleasant prices. Attitudes in General, normal. A calm, relaxing holiday for elderly couples. No resounding music at night. Sea air. Tasty food. Interesting excursions. Bulgaria. Pomorie.

    Still has a site dating from the Communist era that's really interesting visit. Top view of the city.
