You could fly to Sofia and then either get an Air Bulgaria flight from there or the bus or train. Buses and trains are very regular, bus is slightly faster (about 6 hours) and will cost about 30 Leva (15 Euros). Alternatively you could fly via Budapest - Malev has daily flights to Varna.

In Varna an avarage beer will cost about 2 Leva, a good meal out about 20. For cheap eats you can get a decent lunch at the Bulgarian Kitchen places, such as Trops House, for about 5-6 Leva. You can live it up for about 30 Euros a day!

Have a good trip and if you want some restaurant suggestions visit my Varna page.

From the web page of Sofia Airport http://www.sofia-airport.bg/default.aspx

"TRANSPORT FROM/TO SOFIA AIRPORT
The transportation to/from Sofia Airport is easier than one can imagine. The regular bus service and the convenient road will make a good start or finish of your travel.

From Sofia Airport it is easy to access Sofia centre or the Central Railway Station by using the services of the city bus or a route taxi minibus. The bigger hotels will also provide a shuttle bus to/from the Airport. Taxi cabs are also available."

The Sofia Airport website is wrong. The airport buses (84 or 284 depending on your terminal) don't go to the Central Bus/Railway station. The closest you'll get is the Most Orlov (Eagle Bridge). You need to change buses to get the 213 or 313 services. The easiest correspondance is at Hotel Pliska. Here's an up-to-date schematic of the Sofia transport - http://www.stud.uni-karlsruhe.de/~uwarf/home/pic/sofia.jpg

There might be a route minibus but I have no idea where that picks up from at the airport.

Travel Tips for Varna

Take a walk round Varna...

by Natallie

Take a walk round Varna center. Varna is called a pearl of Black Sea. And that's true!
I think it's the best place on the Bulgaria's sea coast. It's population: 300 000. And it is situated in a wonderful place among green mountains. Independence Square is situated in the center of the city. Here stands red building of the Varna Opera House. You can start your walking tour here. Varna is typically southern city. Southern flora, southern buildings and southern temperament.

by Axel-M

The exceptional view of the town Balchik from the sea impressed the great
Ovid who exclaimed: 'O white stone town, I salute thee for thy inimitable
beauty!' The Milesian colonists believed that the goddess of beauty.
Aphrodite was born there out of the sea foam. The spouting karst springs
gave the town its first name Krunoi (meaning spring or source in Old
Greek). The next name was Dionysopoili During the Middle Ages the town
was named after the local feudal lord, Balik.
The first destination is the Quiet Nest palace, tile former summer residence
of Queen Marie of Romania, and its famous gardens of more than 35 ha.
The gardens are the 'residence' of 3000 or so plant species of which cacti
alone are over 250, and thus Europe's second most important collection, The palace park is an imitation of the
Famous Cretan labyrinth. Each stone for the church therefore was brought from the island of Crete. The Carden of
Allah is the prettiest. The Silver Well and the alleys paved with mill stones are also very interesting The earthen
jars were brought from Morocco.

Street Food at its Best!

by johngayton about Hmmm???

I could never work out from the riot of signage of this little place on the main square whether or not it actually has a name - the main sign above the window reading: "Always freshly baked...Specialities from Pleven". It certainly is, however, a very popular Varna institution and has a pretty much permanent queue of a dozen or so people from mid-morning until late lunchtime.

To say that there is a permanent queue isn't to say that that service is slow, in fact quite the contrary, but rather that the place is so popular that the queue never dies down. Forget about MacDonalds and others of its ilk, if you want good fast food at really cheap prices this is the place!

I must admit to having been pretty impressed with this as a slick operation and moreso impressed by the fact that the woman serving managed to do it with a smile. Just as an off-the-cuff estimate I reckon this place must serve at least a couple of thousand people a day from a simple menu of pizza slices and savoury pastries with everything being freshly baked in batches throughout the day. The place seems to be staffed by only two women, one doing the batch cooking and the other serving and taking the money, and boy do they work hard!!

This is where having learnt to read Cyrillic came in pretty handy as the pizza and pastries are served from behind a long glass-fronted heated counter with the items signed in Bulgarian. By the time you've got to the till to order your chosen item it is probably a couple of metres away and so my "Point and Edna Molya" technique would have only caused confusion. Confusion being the last thing that the woman serving would need with a permanent queue of people to serve! Well it has to be Bulgaria's other Nationl dish: the pizza slice, which I probably had 2 or 3 times and at 1.15 leva made for a real value-for-money snack lunch. On the couple of other times I grabbed a quick bite from here I tried the "Balaton" (sausage in pastry) and the "Budapeshta" (ham in pastry) and both were equally up to the task of lining the stomach before the day's serious business of beer drinking began!

Morska Gradina/Sea Garden

by bijo69

The Sea Garden stretches for about 8km along Varna's coast. It's a beautiful park and it's always full of people. Inside the park you've the zoo, an aquarium, a delphinarium, a terrarium and a planetarium. So the perfect place to keep you busy, even if it's raining.
The park was designed by the Czech architect Anton Novak and opened in 1862.
