1.0
#8 of 8 in Zoos & Aquariums in Bulgaria
The Aquarium and the Black Sea Museum features freshwater and marine flora and fauna, a collection of clams, and a number of preserved fish species. You'll recognize the antique-looking building that houses this aquarium and museum because of its bas-relief images of creatures from the Black Sea. Inside, the exhibits are divided into three sections, where you'll see stingrays, long sturgeon, and sea wolves, among other animals. Browse through displays of oceanographic research and see glass casings with preserved water organisms. Finally, check out an exhibit of mammals, birds, and sharks at the site. The Aquarium and the Black Sea Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Varna Edition.

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.
