It is an old cathedral in the heart of Varna with amazing architecture specially from outside. There is a beautiful park out there and also a walking street nearby.

It was very beautiful but there was construction going on inside and we couldn't fully enjoy the view. Keep in mine it is open until 6 p.m.

Right in the center of the city. This East orthodox cathedral is right in the city center and is free to visit.

it's a part of bulgarian history and it's really well preserved , it's small and its view from outside is more beautiful than inside, so simple but rich in history. but it's totally free to visit and take photos and also see some religious ceremony.

Definitively worth a visit, also for those who are not religious, since it's part of the Bulgarian cultural heritage. Not always a good place to rest in silence because people walk around in the church.

It's worth a visit and if you have a chance to see it at night from the outside don't miss it-the lights are very good.

I like churchs because of their paintings and secret story behind of them but we were wondering is it possible to take photo or not seems it was ok

Middle of the Cathedral was under construction but it was still a nice visit. The icons are beautiful and it's very central so definitely must see.
