Varna, the self-proclaimed pearl of the Bulgarian Black Sea Riviera, is more than just a pretty face. Board a coach for a city tour. You’ll visit the magnificent cathedral whose interior offers a curious mix of ornate frescoes and icons in a solemn and calm atmosphere. Listen to beautiful East-Orthodox chants from the rich tradition of the Bulgarian church. Then, continue by coach to the Roman thermal baths, dating back to the 2nd century. Stroll along the halls of the baths, which were engineered with great sophistication. Next, you will find yourself in a different historical moment, entering the quaint 19th-century house of a local merchant, presently home to the town’s Ethnographic Museum. Enjoy the exhibition of agricultural tools, household utensils and traditional costumes. Visit the museum’s top floor and discover Varna’s style of interior domestic decoration from the 19th century. Complete your visit to Varna with a light folklore show and a treat of local wine at a theme restaurant.
Wear comfortable shoes. Guests who wish to remain on the motor coach may do so.
