Must-do / Must-see - our suggestions

 

To do

 

  • The Golden Sands seaside resort is famous for its restorative mineral water springs. The area’s balneotherapy centres still offer affordably-priced restorative treatments using the healing powers of Black Sea salts, algae and clay.
  • A walk in the Stone Forest: although at first glance the imposing stone columns may look like temple ruins, upon closer inspection visitors will see that they are in fact ancient tree trunks that are 50 million years old, which probably took their current form when the region was still under sea level. A unique phenomenon which should not be missed !
  • A boat ride along the Bulgarian coastline offers captivating views of chic marinas, natural landscapes and unspoiled bays.

 

 

To see

 

  • In the midst of the hustle and bustle of city life of Varna, the Sea Garden park offers an 80-hectare oasis of tranquillity and relaxation, full of museums, a dolphinarium and a long beach. 
  • The well-preserved remnants of the 2nd-century Roman baths are one of the city’s top attraction but absolute must-see and is the Archaeological Museum, where remarkable gold objects dating from the 4th millennium BC are on display. 
  • The rocky, reddish cliffs of Cape Kaliakra in the northern Dobruja region are almost 70 m high, and are home to a cave which has been converted into a museum of archaeological discoveries.
