  • A nice place to spend a morning, although not impressive, just good if you are there and you want to spend sometime doing something different than walking along beachside 
  • Don't bother to go. There are better 'nautical sights' on the nearby beach!! lol A collection of scrap displayed in an open museum. 
  • Browsing through the Park of Varna, we stumbled by chance on a former submarine of the Bulgarian Navy (that one can visit a surcharge of BGN 2). The Museum has two parts: the first part is the visit to outside of various vehicles & military objects (sidecar, helicopters, periscopes, anchors, jeep, torpedo, tags, etc); the second part is the visit inside which includes several rooms including military uniforms, medals, various objects such as the sextants, long view, documents of edges, etc), models of boats, a small representation of battle with the sound of guns, and a small room in the basement, featuring a former diver. This museum is very beautiful, which is a shame, it's that you can't take pictures inside.
