Small dolphinarium with a strong smell of stale water. Five dolphins and a baby are in the water; however, only one dolphin, an 18-year old female, Ioanna, actually did the work, occasionally accompanied by another dolphin. The show is overpriced and lasts 45 minutes, out of each 20 minutes was wasted on a talk about dolphins (which by the way... More

I was on holiday with a group of my friends and went to the Dolphinarium because we wanted to see the dolphins happy. this was not a good experience. The dolphin which you can see from the glass window by the café is terrible. the dolphin was on its own in a small tank with dirty water, and he had... More

This was a great show with very friendly performing dolphins. We have been a couple of times with different friends. The host translates everything in all attending languages (which can be time consuming depending on visitors) Reasonably priced at about 15 - 20 leva (£6 to 8) and clean and modern building. There are some fast food bars and a... More

A lovely place to visit although on the expensive side. Complex close to beach. Nice to see dolphins under water at the cafe. Show was very good and you sit quite close as small venue.

Sea life viewing is always a good experience , but thats about it, no real shows or displays of Sea lions , whales , pinguins, or dolphins doing spectacular acrobatic stunts like you would see in Sea World back in the States. Although they do offer live interaction with the dolphins where your able to swim with them.

My personal opinion is that animals should be free and live in their natural habitat, but.... So the Dolphinarium in Varna may not be the fanciest and the most modern one, but it is very nice. It is one of the best attractions in the city. It has traditions and I think the dolphins are well treated. They make a... More
