Varna

Trip Planner Europe  /  Bulgaria  /  Varna Province  /  Varna

Marine Capital of Bulgaria

Combine historical exploration and seaside relaxation at Varna, Bulgaria's coastal Black Sea city. This maritime hub serves as a resort area, port city, and base for the navy, as well as a historic center. Visit Bulgaria's largest Roman baths and renowned archeological museum, both located in Varna. Enjoy the outdoors and recreation activities along the city's beaches or in its expansive park. Though the original settlement dates back almost 5,000 years, the modern city is now known for its lively restaurant, cafe, and bar scene. Walk through neighborhoods with homes featuring Baroque and contemporary styles. Varna is also a good base for day trips to Sveti Konstantin, Golden Sands, and Balchik. Varna is in Varna Province. Use our Bulgaria trip itinerary builder tool to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Varna.

Where to stay in Varna

As Bulgaria's largest coastal town and the nexus of its burgeoning seaside vacation industry, Varna boasts a wide array of hotels and accommodations. The city center north of the train station features large, upscale hotels ranging from Communist-era concrete block-style buildings to more fanciful boutiques. Many offer swimming pools and plenty of amenities. To cut down on costs, consider staying in a guesthouse or bed and breakfast. Beachgoers will want to check out the range of hotels strung out north of the city, which extend a significant distance up the coast. However, keep in mind that staying right on the water will come with a heightened price tag.
