Varna town

thermal pool dragons

The old town itself is worth spending time in, beautiful old buildings, some are a bit neglected which makes them even nicer, pedestrian areas, narrow one way lanes and the very large Sea Garden that sits on top of the cliffs between the city and the beach.

There’s lots to explore and then of course to drink coffee on benches with a view…

Varna, Bulgaria

cathedral

Wtf am I doing in Bulgaria????
hmmmm, there are a few reasons, cheap flights as it’s off season, good priced rooms, it’s on the Black Sea, I miss the sea, and I haven’t been to Bulgaria before, so now it’s the time to have a quick look.

As I had no expectations whatsoever I am positively surprised about how nice it is!

a night coffeeeee

This might be because it is off season and the beaches and resorts are deserted, or maybe it’s the masses of coffee machines!

I stay in Varna very close to the cathedral, everything is within walking distance!

And there are day trips, Golden Sands Nature Park and resort, Balchik, the Stone Forest, or just hop in a hot pool on the beach where the water comes through wide pipes from the thermal springs.
