Weather in Varna

by Saayeh

Hi, my husband and I are travelling to Varna next week on july 8th, I've been checking the weather during the past couple of days and it seems it's been raining all this time in Varna. I was wondering if it really is a good time? anyways we have booked the hotel and bought the tickets so I guess it's to late, but it's good to know how the weather's gonna be like and what clothing to bring.

Weather is always unpredictable, but you can get a rough idea from the 9-day forecast here:

I very much doubt it will rain all day every day and temperatures seem very pleasant indeed. Just pack something to keep you dry in showers......and maybe a light sweater or two in case the evenings turn a bit chilly.

No one is very good at predicting weather. We just take a couple umbrellas in our luggage and go sightseeing in the rain unless it is a major storm. Some places (like Paris) are almost prettier in the rain.

It's only in Bulgarian.

No matter it's shown it will be raining,at the black sea it doesn't rain too much. If it's raining in the morning you'll find it sunny in the afternoon and the opposite.

have fun

Weather in Varna is always excellent, especially on a holiday!
Please check the 10-day forecast, follow the pictures & dates, all rest is in Bulgarian
July was always a great month for beach holidays in Varna, not too hot. You will always find 3-4 hours with a sun shining, PM rain is healthy and there is so much to do outside the beach areas - sports, jeep safaris, cultural tours, spa & wellness, sightseeing....... Enjoy your stay!

Don't worry - you will get a tan, the weather forecast for the next 10 days is wonderful, lots of sunshine. Enjoy your holiday!

Travel Tips for Varna

Varna at glance

by cold_dead_bunny

Varna is sooo alike any other ex-soviet Black Sea resort. I basically didn't see any much difference with Crimea resorts (located in Ukraine). Though center mostly is well renovated and clean, it still feels like most of city have stucked in 80s.



Chaika (or Kabakum as it appears to be better known) is a few miles north of Varna, and is a genuine local beach which retains its true Bulgarian character. About 1.5km long, good sand, beach bars, great atmosphere. Any bus ending in 9 will get you there (stop at "Horizont" and walk down the steps) Superb seafood restaurants too!

Feast For A Fiver!

by johngayton about BMS Bulgarian Kitchen

Our lunch bill here came to exactly 10 leva which, at the present exchange rate, works out less than £5 for two main courses, bread, fried potatoes, salad and beer. Back home I couldn't have bought the ingredients to cook it myself for that!

The BMS Bugarian Kitchens are a small group of canteen-style restaurants, similar to Trops House, where the food is prepared trays at a time and set out in heated and chilled display cabinets. The one we ate at was opposite the railway station and here service was cheery and helpful; there was a good choice of dishes, including vegetarian options, and although the ambience was that of a factory canteen it was like a happy factory's.

My only minor complaint was that the food was lukewarm but I put that down to the fact that it was a slow day. Rather than keeping everything piping hot, which would have dried it out, the staff had decided to just keep it warm - it's always a compromise in that situation and so it wasn't a major problem. For mains Marina opted for the Bean Stew whilst I had Stuffed Cabbage - both of which were tasty and fillling. The spinach salad was zingingly fresh, the chunky fries interestingly seasoned with a touch of turmeric and herbs, the bread suitably wholesome and the beer nicely chilled. Best "fiver" I spent that day!

Museum of History of Varna

by tpk2

The Museum of History of Varna exhibits the way the town look liked back in the days, by authentic craftsmen's workshops, ateliers, shops, pictures etc. You can have your photo taken sitting behind the major’s desk.

Although it maybe not one of the top things to see in Varna, I'd recommend the museum to someone who stays in the town for some days.

The museum is open Tue-sun 10-17 (2007).

Varna's Gold - The Archaeological Museum

by johngayton

Varna's Archaeological Museum is housed in the city's former Girl's High School on Maria Luiza Blvd. The building is itself noteworthy, being a perfect example of the functional Neo- Renaissance style. The exhibits are presented in a logical timescale and the multi-lingual explanatory notes for each section are interestingly informative.

The museum presents Varna's history (known as "Odessos" during the Greek and Roman periods) from 6,000 BC by intelligent presentation of locally-discovered artifacts. All the expected museum stuff is here - weapons, jewellery, sculptures, pottery etc and the coin collection is particularly impressive (and displayed chronologically in such a manner as to allow the visitor to relate the city's developement in context with the region as a whole).

What makes the collection unique are the findings from the Varna Necropolis, dating from the 6th Millenium BC. These are some of the oldest pieces of evidence of human civilization ever found and add a bit of history to an era usually regarded as pre-history. The burial ground was discovered around the Varna Lakes in 1972 during commercial excavations. The subsequent archaeological work has yielded an amazing variety of artifacts showing that as far back as 6,000 BC there was an advanced metal-working and pottery-making culture in the area.

The Necropolis finds, as a whole, are of worldwide archaeological interest but it is the 3,000+ pieces of worked gold, weighing over 6 kg, found in the burial chambers that catches the general public's attention.

This is a fascinating, well laid out and educational museum but personally I thought the 10 leva entrance fee a little on the expensive side, especially since photos aren't allowed. By all accounts the washrooms are pretty good tho'!

Website has details of opening times etc and makes up to some extent for the prohibition against photography by providing a comprehensive selection of pics.
