This coastal city of Varna is particularly famous for its cathedral with golden domes, the Dormition of the Marty, and especially for the reputation of its nightlife! You can also enjoy the Black Sea over there.
It is true that the party animals will find enough nightclubs in the resort Golden Sands to spend a great night! In reality, this resort is located a few kilometers from Varna and is only about hotels and nightclubs. It has been created only for tourists and therefore has nothing to do with the real Bulgaria.
Varna, on the opposite, has a charming town center buzzing with major streets and parks where it is good to take a walk.
The city also has some other beautiful buildings such as the Opera, with its Neo-Baroque dark red facade on Nezavisimost Square (Independence Square), the Marine Garden and the Roman Baths.

Stop wondering where to sleep and book with closed eyes at X Hostel! The atmosphere is guaranteed! The manager and his wife are paying attention to you and do their best to ensure you have a great time! We spent only one night but would have loved to extend our stay!
