Varna is the largest city and the most interesting, cosmopolitan seaside resort on the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast.

The area has a rich selection to offer for both sea-lovers, as well as sightseeing tourists with its lengthy beach to lounge on, the enormous and beautiful Seaside Garden to amble round, the historical places and the finest archaeological museums to discover the Bulgarian culture. Besides Bulgaria’s largest Roman baths complex can be found in the city center, the town is also famous for the oldest gold jewelry in the world, belonging to the Varna culture, that was discovered in the Varna Necropolis and dates to 4200-4600 BC.
