View the superb murals, icons, and altars at the Cathedral of the Virgin Mary. Enjoy refreshments and a performance of folk music and dances at an outdoor restaurant.

Varna, the sea capital of Bulgaria is a city with marvelous beaches, lavish green parks, beautiful bays, refreshing summer breeze, archaeological remnants from ancient times and historical sites. Varna, the “Pearl of the Bulgarian Black Sea Riviera,” is more than just a pretty face.

Today you will see the attractive Assumption Cathedral, an imposing landmark, which contains a finely carved iconostasis and a bishop's throne, some interesting murals and stained glass. A ‘postcard’ building is also the Drama Theatre building now housing both the drama theatre and the opera.

Varna dearly cherishes its national treasures, as they reveal a wealth of historical information. Visit to the Archeological Museum which houses gold treasures from the Chalcolithic Period (3000 BC), widely believed to be the oldest gold ever discovered.

A choir performing Eastern Orthodox songs will welcome you in the museum’s back yard. Enjoy the ancient artefacts while listening to the magnificent performance of the choir.
