Varna to Constanta

by s_a_i_l

How can I get from Varna to Constanta. I am planning on flying from Prague to Varna since I can get a cheap flight. I thought I would then head up to Constanta for a couple of days before heading to Bucharest. Unfortunatly I can't find any public transportation to get from Varna to Constanta. I saw some old posts that said there used to be a ferry but it no longer was in service. Any suggestions??? Thanks!

Travel Tips for Varna

For An Afternoon Out - The Aladzha Rock Monastery

by johngayton

Bulgarian rock monasteries were mostly established during the era of the Second Bulgarian Empire (12th to 14th centuries AD). As an alternative to the rich mainstream monasteries these would have been inhabited by particularly pious, hermit, Orthodox monks and used as retreats.

One of the most famous is the Aladzha Monastery, about 17 km north of Varna. This is situated on top of the Perchemli Tepe (hill) in the Zlatni Piasatsi Nature Park overlooking the Golden Sands seaside resort.

The name "Aladzha", meaning "colourful", referred to its religous frescoes and mosiacs. Unfortunately most of these have not withstood the centuries of disuse following the Ottoman period but a small museum on the site has preserved enough to give one an idea of their magnificence.

What is well-preserved though is the original structure. The Monastery was built on two levels set into the 40 m high limestone cliff. The monks cells, on the lower level, would have been spartan, simple caves in the rock face, and their communal areas equally basic. On the upper level is the chapel which contained the religous ornamentation and as well as being a daily place of prayer was also, probably, a place of pilgrimage.

Although the site is no longer sanctified many modern-day visitors still regard it as a pilgimage and leave token offerings.

The site is open to visitors 10am to 5pm, 6 days a week in the summer (closed Mondays) and closed Sundays as well during the winter (although I'm not sure when winter begins as we visited on a November Sunday!). Entry fee at time of writing was 5 Leva which includes the museum.

To drive to the Monastery from Varna take the main E87 coast road heading north - there is signposted car park just after the Zlatni Piasatsi fork.

By public transport take either the 109 or 409 buses from the stop on Maria Lousia, opposite the cathedral. These run about every twenty minutes with a journey time of about forty minutes, the fare is (Nov 2009) 3 Leva which you pay on the bus. The Nature Park entrance is opposite the resort's main bus stop. From there it is a pleasant forty-five minute woodland hike up the hill (take the "yellow route" up) - see my Golden Sands page for more about the Nature Park.

Lunch With The Locals

by johngayton about Trops Kushta

If you're looking for a cheap, healthy and wholesome bite to eat in the city centre then visit one of these places. Trops Kushta is a bit like a factory canteen with all the dishes presented in either heated or refrigerated displays. There's quite a dazzling array of Bulgarian fare on offer, all of which is appetizingly laid out, with soups, salads, main courses and desserts plus all the other bits and bobs you could think of.

Prices depend on what you order - a simple soup lunch will cost about 3-4 Leva.

Dishes are freshly prepared in batches and topped up throughout the day as required. For the really budget conscious they start discounting by 30% sometime in the evening as they start to wind down for the day. A simple sausage and pea soup with a bread roll was exactly what I was after, with plenty of meat in a natural broth. Delish it was too. I also tried a little nibble of Marina's pumpkin pie which was tooth-rottingly sweet but also tasty.

Varna's Sea Garden

by johngayton

It may be a bit of a cliche to say that "the best things in life are free" but it is, in my personal experience, quite often the case. Here in Varna one of my favourite places is the magnificent Sea Garden which sprawls northward from the city centre for several kilometres following the Black Sea coast. The Sea Garden (sometimes referred to as Primorski Park) is one of Europe's largest city centre public parks with an area of about 90,000 square metres and is an eclectic mix of both formal and informal cultivation.

Many of Varna's main tourist attractions are situated within the park including the Dolphinarium, the Observatory and the Varna Aquarium as well as several cafes and restaurants. What I especially love about the place is that when you get off the main promenades, with their sculptures and monuments, pleasant though these concourses are, you really can just escape from the city and surround yourself with birdsong and the vegetal scents mingled with those of the sea.

On one of my meandering wanders I had a bit of the park pretty much to myself until I came across another like-minded guy. This guy was just standing on the dirtpath, transfixed in his own solitude, listening to the birds and breathing deeply. This was one of those times where you don't need to have a shared language in order to be able to communicate as he greeted me and said (in Bulgarian) what I would assume was "Isn't this beautiful, listen to the birds..." I stopped and we stood a while in silence before I replied (in English) "Yes it is..."

We shared a smile and parted company having shared a small moment of humanity and each set up for the rest of our day with the shared smile and the birdsong as our day's highlight.

Roman therms

by mirchica

The situated in the South-Eastern part of Varna Roman therms are the biggest ancient public building found in Bulgaria by now. The comparatively well preserved walls outline an impressive structure, built on more than 7000 square meters.

tartanski's new Varna Page

by tartanski

Varna is a very special place to me as I have had many enjoyable and romantic times there. My first visit to Varna, and Bulgaria was with business but later when I travelled there for pleasure I discovered just what a great place Varna is.

In short a very friendly and comfortable place to be.
