    Varna Things to Do

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...

    Shumen Things to Do

    You can see this gigantic monument already from far away. It was inaugurated in 1981 to commemorate the foundation of the First Bulgarian Empire in 681. It's situated on a hill-top and can be reached via a staircase which starts behind the History Museum. Honestly, I was too lazy to climb up the 3km.... But well, a reason to come back.

At the nose there is a tinny small church (it's just a room with several icons). It's a great spot for a panoramic view as it it's right at the edge, on top of the waves and you see a wide open space. There is a stone bench one can...

    by Bica29 Written Nov 1, 2007

    If you walk along the beach from Kranevo to Zlatni Pjasci you will get to the authentic fisherman village. There are couple of cheap taverna's there and you can also meet real locals not summer workers whom you can see for example in Albena.
    Also keep in mind that Black sea is not as solty as you may expect so do not be surprised if you see threes not tipical for seaside.
