I didn’t know that it does exist and I found out this summer. Our friends took us there and we had amazing time. The area is huge and you can have barbecue there, also a rose garden and a small waterfall and many others that we could not see…next time.
It is on the north side of St. St. Konstantin and Elena resort.
My favorite restorant in Varna...
My favorite restorant in Varna was 'Restorant Galata' on
the peninsula.I liked the folk music with the drum and
other instruments.We went there from Varna by electric
boat.The food was excellent,'Salad Sopska',potetoes with
Okay, I'm a sucker for these! I really enjoy teaching music and dance at school and so these are always a 'must' for me!
A group of musicians and a troupe of dancers entertained us in a restaurant near to where our coach had dropped us.
I sat next to the dance area ---of course!
The dancers were great! They were amateur enthusiasts from a local village ---but they were so entertaining. There were two youngsters too ---learning the ropes! A girl sang traditional songs beautifully and the instrumentalists supported the whole thing with tremendous skill.
At times some of us were grabbed by the dancers and we had a chance to try some of the simpler steps.
Would I go again? YES!

5er's new Varna Page
Varna is Bulgaria's third largest city. It was an inhabited place even before the Greeks established the colony of Odessos there about 580 B.C. Later, under the Romans and their successors, the Slavs, Varna became a major port trading with Constantinople, Venice and Dubrovnik. In 1393 it was captured by the Turks, who made it an important military centre.
Nowadays it is the main port for both naval and commercial shipping and, adjacent as it is to the coastal resorts of Golden Sands, St. Constantine (Drouzhba) and Albena, it has a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Sailors on shore-leave in unfamiliar ceremonial uniforms, mingle with foreign tourists and locals as they promenade along shady boulevards, lined by dignified 19th and early 20th century buildings.
The gem of the Bulgarian Black Sea is situated at the end of the big Varna Bay, with a convenient and well conserved water area. The city's peculiar sea charm is sublime and moving. Ancient, medieval, renaissance and modern cultures mingle and coexist throughout the city. Varna lies on the same latitude of the famous Atlantic resorts Bayonne and Biarritz in France, on a large, flat and high terrace on the northwestern most curve of the bay which juts some 7 km inland. During the holiday season, July and August, the sunshine allows 10-11 hours of sunbathing. There is nothing of the cold Baltic wind or the summer Riviera heat. The sea is amazingly calm and free of dangerous tides.
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 hillside monastery of Aladzha...
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.
