Holidays to Varna take you to a cosmopolitan maritime city with history coursing through veins that run under the surface of a very modern skin. The third largest city in the region, Varna captures the classic soul of Bulgaria and gives it a seaside twist.
History and modernity collide in the most forgivable way in this glistening Black Sea gem...
Holidays in Varna – the capital of Bulgaria's coastal resorts - are both rich in heritage and shimmering with style. So whatever you are looking for out of a holiday, Varna's sights and attractions – including its lovely beaches – are sure to satisfy.
You'll be walking across the footsteps of time as you stroll through history in this remarkable city; the Romans left their mark here and many of the impressive remains are regarded as some of the most important outside of Italy. The Roman baths complex, for example, is not to be missed, while the enthralling archaeology museum is excellent and delivers a fascinating insight into Bulgarian life 2,000 years ago under Roman rule. The Romans, Phoenicians, Thracians and Greeks all put their stamp on this remarkable port, and much of that heritage can still be seen.
There's no chance of you missing the comforts of the modern age on Varna holidays, though, as the historic sights are surrounded by an ultra-modern, but thoughtfully designed metropolis. And you won't be short of places to eat. Fashionable restaurants sit temptingly along the coast, beckoning you in with local dishes. So be adventurous and sample Bulgarian delights such as mekitsa, a delicious variety of donut, washed down with the national tipple of rakia.
Sun worshippers won't be disappointed either as the powdery sands – lapped by the calm ripples of the Black Sea – are vast and welcoming. And neither will shoppers, who will love getting lost in the emporiums and boutiques hidden in the streets behind restaurants, bars and estate agents.
Flights to Varna from UK airports are plentiful in the summer months. You can fly to Varna Airport (VAR) or Bourgas Airport (BOJ), which is just an hour away.
