This private Varna shore trip visits the charming Bulgarian Summer Capital to explore its main sites including the Roman Baths, the Archeological museum and the Orthodox Cathedral. You will see how ancient, medieval and modern coexist and understand how Varna was chosen as the best place to live in Bulgaria in both 2007 and 2008.
After meeting your guide your first stop is at the Archeological museum. The museum itself was founded in 1906 and is housed in an even older building of the New Renaissance style. You will see treasures from Bulgaria's rich history including the oldest gold found in Europe.
Next is a visit to the Orthodox Cathedral which was built in 1880 shortly after the Liberation
of the Ottoman rule. The cathedral has a wealth of local religious art dating back from the 19th century. Coming to Bulgaria and missing one of the orthodox churches is almost
like visiting Rome without seeing the Vatican, and this tour takes care
of that for you.
Next you visit the Roman Baths which are located in an area of the city that was called Odessus during Roman times. The baths were built in the 2nd century AD and they are the fourth-largest preserved Roman Baths in Europe.
At the end of the tour, you will be brought back to the port.
Mobility: Folding wheelchair OK, however some steps are required (advance notice required)
