    I visited this museum as was fairly interested in the car collection there. The museum is on the first floor of Varna's 'Grand Mall' which you can get to easily enough by busses including the 409. The...  more »

    Will not upload photos, as they already have been published many times in this and other resources. I want to describe my sensations and emotions. The Museum is uniquely wonderful. This is a return to an excellent era of childhood. Yes, the era before the year 1989 cannot be called a truly excellent-had problems, the horrors and stuff, but childhood is the best time and it is great! I came to the Museum empty-handed: gave "Olympic transparency" 1980 g. Hope he'll Museum hosts. Owners-big Fellows: have done a tremendous job on accumulation of exhibits, restoration of cars, motorcycles. You can see that this is such a collection-the meaning of life of these people. Bravo! In the Museum you can see cars from the USSR and countries of socialism, motorcycles, baby toys, televisions, with street name plates, portraits of Communist leaders and much more. All this is accompanied by the music of the era. I felt old. I lived in that era, I know the names of the leaders of the countries without information labels and brands of machines without having to examine the information. I have lived on this planet, "and for young people-it's a new world, another era. By the way, my five year old son has very carefully studied the exhibits (toys, cars), did not want to leave, and the gift shop was asked to buy a mug with a picture of "Trabanta" and the magnet on the fridge with "Skoda". Now the House requests tea in this circle. There is one drawback-in the summer it is very hot in the room.

    It's ok, by the way it's IN the mall! We didn't know it so kept going around the Mall looking for the museum (which is a bit unusual place for a museum, isn't it..;)

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.
