  • The park is so good for spending time with the children.You can go walking among the trees which we cannot see in the center of Istanbul. There is a small zoo that you can see different kind of animals with your children. Also taste the ice cream there with a reasonable price.
  • The best place in Varna city for walk, cycling, skating, singing, Tai-Chi, Yoga, bringing your kids for attraction like Zoo and swings.Many bars, restaurants & bars placed next to the beach with parking lot at sea line with panorama, good for dinner alone or with your family or even group.You might enjoy of perfect sea view and gardens for hours.
  • Its a nice place for a rest or a vacation is summer. The sea is making the climate good for living
  • Awesome park, ideal for long walks & caters to every age group. Safe to walk at night, includes various theme parks & places to visit. It could be a little cleaner though, as many locals as well as tourists don't really clean up after their dogs...
  • Absaluitly loved this park so much to do for children. Wish if could have similar parks everywhere.

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.
