    A great idea to create throughout the years this immense green oasis right above the sea side walk. It provides for the fresh air we all need and for a variety of distractions for all ages and tastes. Had some lovely walks through it, both during the day and in the evenings and appreciated how clean and well kept it is.

    Highly recommended!

    Place full of history in every detail. Take your time, make a tour with a guide from the park, have a meal and you will be extreme happy!

    The museum itself is really good. many older cars in better condition than when they left the factory. The paint finishes really are stunning.

    We spent over an hour and really liked it.

    Wear a jacket in the winter as it is set on one level of the car park, so no heating!

    They do a deal on the wax museum, some are better than others in that part, but its "half price" if you are visiting the museum anyway.

    The stone forest near Varna is not a petrified forest however it is petrified coral. Still worth the visit though: it is an extremely eerie place

    Visited the Cathedral one morning and found a beautiful big church with a lot of beautiful icons inside, both painted directly on the walls or on display for dedicated prayers. From what we read, it was finished around 1865 , so it is fairly "new" as compared to other orthodox churches.

    Well worth a visit if you want to spend some time in prayer or just gather your thoughts in a holy and tranquil place. Access is free.

    Very interesting area. The caves and underground section were very cool. When the other tourists who were talking loudly on the phone and doing selfies left the caves, it was very peaceful and created a feeling. I appreciated the English information the museum, including a few short video presentations on the history of the monastery and the history of Orthodox Christianity in Bulgaria. Also of note are the black and white religious drawings. I have never seen black and white iconography in Orthodox or Catholic places, so that was new and curious.

    The spring water is drinkable and tastes very good. We brought empty bottles and drank the water for the duration of our trip as Varna municipal water tastes very bad.

    We spent another two hours hiking through the forest area. Lots of trails and interesting rocks to check out.

    We brought a lunch and had a picnic in the forest.

    Before travelling to Varna we researched its points of interest and the Archeological Museum was at the top of the list.

    Museum is filled with artefacts displayed in chronological order and illustrate a vast historic period for Varna and its surroundings. The oldest forged gold artefacts are truly the highlight and are well worth the time. There are exhaustive historical facts and details regarding the diggings presented in English.

    A must if you are a hobby historian or just want to find out more about our days Bulgaria and the Black Sea area.

    All the experience ruined by the car parking policy. On arrival we parked close to the building in which seemed a... parking! Went out after the show and we could not find our car. Asking people around we found that was lifted by a company for illegal parking. The only thing is that we could not find a sign. Investigating we did found one sign turned with the back facing the parking. There were two policemen overhere (I think was not the National Police) which just looked at us, let us park and then called the company. Looking at them later, we did noticed that they were anouncing that parking is not permited mostly to the locals.. We felt robed. Needless to say that the process of recovering our car was difficult, my wife stayed with a small baby in front of the building untill I got the car back. Never again to come back. Sorry for the people working with dolphins and for their hard work. The show was really nice. PS: There is a sign with a lot of writing right at the entrance. To read all you would have to stop all the traffic... It there says that parking is not allowed on the roads, nothing about the space where we parked., which was not a road.

    Really small, quite a few animals which didn't look that happy in the small environment. Ticket is cheap so I assume they don't afford much.
