Varna has served as a major seaport community throughout multiple eras of human history. Today, it is a beautiful seaside resort on the Black Sea. In the past, when the city was called Odessos, it served as a major influence for the Thracian culture.
The oldest gold jewelry ever discovered belonged to the culture of this city. Found at the Necropolis, it is believed to be over 6,000 years old.
The age of this city has created a foundation where some amazing experiences can happen for a visitor. Everything from the ancient to the modern is available to explore.
It all begins at the sea baths, which are the city beaches, as they have naturally heated mineral water springs. Head up to the bridge for bungee jumping or over to the botanical gardens run by the local university to have a casual stroll.
The promenade along the waterfront is home to a thriving music scene. Clubs, pubs, and cafes offer almost anything you could want when a craving strikes.
One of the oldest open-air parks in the city, called the Sea Garden, offers an aquarium, dolphinarium, observatory, planetarium, an amusement park, boat house, and plenty of other attractions to enjoy. You may also wish to tour the Medieval cave monastery or go see Pobiti Kamani, which is a natural rock formation that looks anything but natural.
Varna offers plenty of relaxation opportunities, whether you prefer to kick your shoes off or wear your shoes out. That is what makes it such an exciting holiday destination.
