Beautiful Varna

Varna is a beautiful city on the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast, Varna is one of the major ports in Bulgaria and is the third largest city in Bulgaria after Sofia and Plovdiv. Varna is the Bulgarians choice of summer resort, it has two beautiful beaches, many bars, cafes and restaurants a beautiful city garden and is full of history.

I have personally been to Varna twice to visit my wifes baba (grandma), I adore the city so much. In the summer you have temperatures of 40 degress upwards and the people are friendly and hospitable just like the rest of Bulgaria, and unlike the golden sands resort which is built specifically for foreign visitors Varna is full of character which sets it apart from many other sea side cities and towns.

There is an archaeological museum in Varna which holds some of the oldest gold in the world which is called the "Gold of varna" and there is also a beautiful old cathedral called the Dormition of the Theotokos.

Below is a photo I took of the Dormition of the Theotokos cathedral
