Around the year
Apart from being a beach resort, Varna rivals the great cities of Sofia and Plovdiv, in its offering of cultural attractions and historical buildings, museums and art galleries. It also provides access to some of the quieter scenic spots along the coast, including the nature reserve of Kamchiya, the royal palace of Balchik and the hill side monastery of Aladzha.
Varna was an important port and trading centre from ancient times - attracting a truly cosmopolitan population of merchants where influence is still to be found today.
At the seafront you will be greeted by the colourful flowerbeds of Primorski park, modelled allegedly on the Viennese Baroque palace gardens of Schonbrunn and Belvedere. The impressive park also houses various museums including one on Natural History, a Planetarium, zoo and aquarium. If you are lucky you might even catch a glimpse of a pair of dancing bears!
Varna is an 'around the year' holiday destination. Beyond the High season its balneotherapy facilities can help you unwind and enjoy the many sights and sounds in peace.
