Sts Constantine and Helena
Bulgaria is known for its rich history, which stretches back over 6,000 years and is on display everywhere you look, ranging from sacred religious buildings with beautiful architectural styles and colorful art to the hundreds of fortresses and historic ruins, from which some famous legends and myths were born. Bulgaria is one of the most popular beach destinations in Europe, with hundreds of miles of glittering coastline. It`s also known for its winter sporting opportunities in some of the most glamorous and affordable ski resorts east of Switzerland.
Varna, the third-largest city in Bulgaria, is the largest of the Black Sea resort towns. Varna is well-known for its archaeological sites and finds, such as the 6,000-year-old Gold of Varna, the oldest gold treasure in the world, and the Roman Baths which is the largest of its kind in the Balkans. Many people use Varna as a jumping-off point to explore the rest of the Black Sea Coast, but it is a popular tourist destination in its own right. It is one of the cultural centers of Bulgaria, and it is also home to one of the most vibrant nightlife scenes in the country. Be sure to visit one of the hot thermal spring "sea baths" which dot the coast. Visit and discover the Dolphinarium Varna, Sea Garden, Varna Archaeological Museum, Dormition of the Mother of God Cathedral, Roman Thermae of Odessos, Retro Museum, Butterfly House, National Maritime Museum, History of Varna Museum, Varna Eye, Monument of Tsar Kaloyan, and so much more.
Sts Constantine and Helena
Saints Constantine and Helena is the oldest of the resort towns along the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast, and is located five miles east-northeast of Varna. Decades before Golden Sands and Sunny Beach were developed, Saints Constantine and Helena was renowned throughout Europe for its high-quality medicinal hot springs. These springs still exist today, and are but one of the many highlights in this modern resort town. Be sure to stroll down the beautiful English lanes of the city park, and take a trip to the Sofia University Botanical Gardens, which date from the early 20th century, and see the vibrant local flora. Discover the great Sofia University Botanical Gardens, Sahara Beach, Monastery of Saints Constantine and Helena, Aquahouse Thermal Spa and Beach, Euxinograd Palace, and so much more.
Golden Sands is the largest purpose-built seaside resort on the Black Sea Coast of Bulgaria. It is located ten miles north of Varna and was developed in the 1950s by the Bulgarian government as the country's showcase resort town. By the late 1970s, it was the jewel of the "Red Riviera", a popular vacation destination for people from across the Eastern Bloc. Privatized since the 1990s, Golden Sands now welcomes a large number of tourists from North America, Western Europe, and the Middle East. An explosion of new resorts have joined the original Soviet-era resort complex (since updated with current amenities), all of which are centered around an area of coastline a mile long. Sights in the vicinity include the grotto of Aladzha Monastery, and the Golden Sands Nature Park, a 5-acre forest located just to the west of town. Discover the great Aladzha Monastery, Golden Sands Nature Park, Aquapolis, Nirvana Beach, Hotel International Casino, and so much more.
