Sea capital

Varna is the biggest city at the Bulgarian Black Sea coast and the third one in the country. I feel Varna as my second home and every summer I come back here with pleasure. And every time I come I discover something new. Love that feeling.

The port

Here is the main port in Bulgaria and also very important at the Black Sea. A lot of cargo and passenger ships moor here as well as rich yachts and sailing training ships from all over the World.

Sea resort

Varna is also one of the most popular sea resorts in Bulgaria. People come here because they wanna learn more about the region and the country because of the many landmarks in and aroud the city.
There are a lot of hotels for all type of tourists. The nightlife is also on high level. You just can't be bored here.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:You can feel the summer here
  • Cons:Very sad in winter time...and windy

    Sadly i didnt get much time in Varna but met the rental car guy who was arranged to pick up my one way rental from Sofia and he took me to a shopping centre to buy a small enough wheelie case for on board use, so i can always remember Varna and Bulgaria when i look at it! i loved my 4-5 days in Bulgaria.

    Love this page Mira. This is what VT is all about - getting different, very individual viewpoints of a place. I must, must, must plan Bulgaria into next year's travels.

      Thank you :))))
      Plovdiv is a must see and of course we have also some beautiful cities like Varna and Veliko Tarnovo, also some small revival towns like Koprivshtitsa, Kalofer, Troyan, Zlatograd, some villages like Bozhentsi, Kovachevitsa, Shiroka Laka, we also have some fabulous monasteries like Rila Monastery, Bachkovo Monastery, Troyan Monastery, not forget some historical mountan resorts like Bansko or along the sea like Nessebar and Balchik. It all depends on how long you wanna stay and what exactly you want to see :))))

    Nice Varna page and it is a very nice city. Just a suggestion - your tips could do with a few more links to make them more informative. Cheers, John.
