I visited here last summer with my boyfriend who is Bulgarian but hadn't been swimming with dolphins. I was so excited... I adore animals. It was my impression that the dolphins would have a much larger area for swimming when not doing their shows but I highly doubt this after swimming with them. The pool was extremely small in which...

I suppose the children found this entertaining, but just had a dated and ex-socialist feel about it. Very amateurish and barely amusing.

Some of the stunts were really good while overall impression is quite average. Duration of 35 minutes only was really dissappointing. Also a cafe on the other side of delphinarium with windows to the pool to watch dolphins was a dissapointment as well - water was so cloudy that you could see dolphins only when they wereright next to window.

Took the family (2 teens and a 20 year old). It was interesting and they had a good time. It was worth going and the lady presenting did a running translation into several languages including English.

If you visit Varna, go to the Delphinium only with your small children. They will enjoy meeting with these beautiful animals!

Recently I did go for the "Play with Kimbo - Dolphin Encounter" individual tour at the Dolphinarium-Varna. It was a great experience, exciting close encounter with a trained dolphin. Perfectly organized by the Dolphinarium crew, very interesting on the educating side, very exciting and unforgetable tour - recommend it to everybody who loves the dolphins and the sea!

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
