    The football playground

    This is the newest and biggest mall in Varna. The difference with Mall Varna is only the size and the football court on the top of the building. At the underground floors is the parking and supermarket Carrefour. On the first 2 floors there are shops and at the last one you can find the food court and the kid attractions. Arena cinema has placed the biggest cinema in Varna there.

    Mall Varna is almost as every mall - a lot of shops and entertainment you can find there. There are playhalls, cinema, food court, supermarket and of course many little shops for clothes,suvenirs and home stuff. If the weather is bad and you have already been around the museums, it's a nice place to lose your time

    Local Off-licences: When You're On A Budget

    by johngayton Updated Feb 24, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Here it is!

    On my first visit to Varna I wasn't really there as a tourist as such but rather just having a bit of "time-out" and catching up with myself. I also used my time there to catch up a little with my VT pages and so spent quite a few evenings in my little hotel room bashing the keyboard of this old laptop. It is actually physically impossible for me to write without a glass in one hand and a cigarette in the other and so this little 24 hour off-licence on the main square, about 100 yards up from my hotel, became my number one favourite shop here.

    I always got a warm cheery welcome from the young guy serving when I dropped in most evenings and the beer in the fridge was always cold. The prices very reasonable and they even stocked cigarette papers!

    What to buy: Beer of course! Plus cigarette papers and spicy paprika Pringles - Yep, all the necessities of life!

    What to pay: I can't remember the exact price but the 2 litre bottles of Zagorka were a couple of leva, similar price for the Pringles and maybe 50 ct for the papers - this is the way to do Bulgaria on a budget!

    Optic: Where To Get A Pair Of Reading Glasses

    by johngayton Updated Feb 24, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Frontage

    One of the things that's often a problem when travelling is buying things that are relatively common but usually only found in certain shops. Back home you know exactly what shops to use but abroad its not always obvious who stocks what.

    For instance, here in Varna I broke my reading glasses. In the UK I would just go to the nearest pharmacy and pick up a new pair. In Bulgaria though it seems pharmacies don't stock reading glasses, or at least the couple that I tried didn't.

    I thought there'd be no point in going to an opticians as they normally only do prescription glasses and the couple of general shops that I thought might stock ones for reading turned out only to stock sunglassses.

    I'd been wandering the city for over an hour when I found a little bookshop which seemed to stock all sorts of general purpose things asssociated with books, such as stationery etc. In I popped holding my broken glasses and miming that I was looking for a new pair (I still don't know the Bulgarian for "reading glasses").

    Fortunately the assistant spoke reasonable English and explained that they didn't stock them but that the opticians across the road probably would.

    And so it proved. When I first went in, doing my miming bit again, the guy running the place, who also spoke good English, offered to have a pair made for me. I said that I actually needed a pair now.

    He replied that he didn't normally stock them but it so happened he might have a pair and so after a little rumaging he found them.

    Saved the day! And although a little expensive at 15 leva were pretty good quality and he threw in a freebie case.

    City Centre Market: Where To Get Your Healthy Stuff!

    Varna Market

    Bulgarians certainly enjoy their fresh fruit, vegetables and saladstuffs. The local produce is as good as any I've tasted, both at home and on my travels. Everywhere I've visited in Bulgaria (even in Sofia!) I've usually found excellent markets. Here in Varna the main city centre market is tucked behind the Opera House just off the main square. Well worth a visit if you are self-catering.

    What to buy: Not just local produce but also imported exotics such as bananas ;)

    Many estate agents: Buying property

    by deeper_blue Written Aug 17, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Property is a thriving market at the moment in Varna, with prices steadily rising, so come to beautiful Varna and find a excellently priced pad.

    What to buy: Apartments in Varna or in another large city or land by the sea.
    Don't buy in a remote village.

    What to pay: Depends on size, area and conditions.
    Don't pay more than 3% commission to the agent
