What currency should I take?

by krfcuk


I have been advised by various people to take Euros, US Dollars or Sterling. What is preferred?

RE: What currency should I take?

by CliffClaven

Euros are the most common foreign currency in Bulgaria. But as in most parts of the world, local taxi drivers, store owners, etc, will take any hard currency - and, of course, give you a bad rate for it. The simplest solution is to withdraw local currency from ATMs.

RE: RE: What currency should I take?

by lsammut

i would suggest euros. that is the most popular forgein currency there. but as said by my friend here above, happens just the same as all over the world, you would be given the wrong change. so i would suggest either changing the money at a bank or official exchange buereu (don't try to exchange them with people in the street, they will cheat you) or else get money from an atm.

Hi
We’ve been to Bulgaria a few times and we always take Sterling. We change just enough for the first few days (£50) back here in England and then change the rest when needed, as the exchange in Bulgaria is a little better than here. As previously stated only change money at a bank, hotel or one of the exchange booths with the crown on top, never change money on the street.

Travel Tips for Varna

Where To Top Up Your Mineral Water Bottles

by johngayton

According to http://news.guide-bulgaria.com on 3rd April 2009 the Municipality of Varna is seeking bids for the commercial concession to extract 157,680 cubic metres of mineral water annually.

However if you just want to fill your own bottle for free you can tap into the mineral spring down by the new bathing complex on ul Primorski. It doesn't look as if there is any limit to the size or number of bottles you can fill!

Good Old Bulgarian Taxis - Part #2

by johngayton

Whilst Varna does have its share of "rip-off" taxi drivers it does also have perfectly honest ones. On my last visit (Nov 2009) I'd arrived at the main bus station from Veliko Turnovo. I was running late and when a touting taxi pulled up as I got off the bus I decided to get in anyway, fully expecting to have to pay over the odds.

Not to be though. I gave the driver my hotel address and off we went taking the most direct route. The meter was on and perfectly readable and when we arrived what it read was the sum he asked for. It was just over 4 Leva for the twenty, or so, minute journey and so I give him 5 quite happily.

I forgot to note which company it was but concensus has it that OK Taxi's are usually pretty good. Number below:

The Cathedral

by zlatiq

The Cathedral is the main hallmark of Varna. It's named Uspenie Presvyatiya Bogoroditzi or the Assumption of the Holly Mother in honour of the Russian empress Maria Alexandrovna who was aunt of that day bulgarian ruler, prince Alexander I Batenberg.

The Cathedral was meant to symbolize the separation of the bulgarian church from the greek one and to show our close ties with the russian church after the Russo-Turkish war ( that led to liberation of Bulgaria from the Ottoman empire). The history behind its building is very interesting, as material was brought from all over bulgaria and europe. The first stone was laid in 1880 and it took only 6 years to be finished.

Another interesting thing we came across while looking for the Roman baths besides the roman chariot was this interestingly painted house, which actually is the facade of a restaurant. It is on the street that leads straight to the Train station if coming from the city center.

Varna - our sea Capital

by desert_princess

Varna is an important administrative, economic and cultural center, the Largest Bulgarian seaport and a well known international resort. It was fonded in c.6 BC as a Greek city-state under the name of Odessos , which means "city by water". It soon became one of the most signigicant ports and trade centers of the Black Sea region. It was annexed to the kingdom of Alexander the Great for several decades and regained its independance after his death. The city was annexed to the Roman Empire in15AD. This was the time of its economic and cultural flourishing. The name "Varna" came into use after the Slav invasions in c.6-7 AD. The city was part of the Bulgarian kingdom by the end of c.8 . After numerous wars between Bulgaria and the Byzantine Empire , King Kaloyan permanetly annexed Varna to the Bulgarian kingdom in 1201 and the city became an important fortress and seaport untill the Ottoman conquest.
Varna was officially proclaimed a seaside resort in 1921.
The climate is similar to the Mediterranean and is suitable for balneological treatment.
