Relaxing to the sound of the sea
Temperatures in Varna are warm from May until September - and thus ideal for relaxing on Varna’s city beach after a night of partying. Unlike Golden Sands, this is where the locals come to work on their tan. If a day at the beach doesn’t suit, there is plenty to see in Varna, including impressive surroundings and some cultural highlights.
Varna used to be the first terminus of the Orient Express. Public transport connections are still very good, making it easy to reach visit-worthy places like Probitite kamani (Stone Forest). The rock formations in the forest contain fossils, mussels and marine creatures.
Read the signs correctly
Steeped in history that goes back thousands of years, Varna’s old town is a place with many interesting sights. The cathedral of Sveta Bogorodiza, for instance, is one of its main landmarks and enchants with wall paintings and hand-carved icons. A visit to the well-known theatre of Stojan Batschvarov, where culture and entertainment become intertwined, is also highly recommended. In terms of body language it is essential to note that, for Bulgarians, shaking one’s head means “yes” and nodding means “no”. Equipped with that background knowledge, a visit to Varna should be fairly straightforward, even beyond the theatre stage.
