What you’ll see on your private day tour of Varna

Varna city tour

Varna is the third largest city in Bulgaria, second to Plovdiv and dwarfed by Sofia. But, while it might be lagging behind in population, in terms of unmissable sights to see it is near the top of the pile.

You’ll visit the Roman Baths, the unmistakable cathedral in the city centre where the Episcopal Throne is located, the Archaeological Museum and many others.

Plus, you’ll be travelling in comfort and style, at your own pace, aided by insights from your fluent, expert guide.

Visit the Shumen Monument

The Shumen Monument commemorates the creators of the Bulgarian State and over 1300 years of Bulgarian history.

Set over 450 metres above sea level, this cyclopean structure can be seen from 30 km away!

The Stone Forest

The Stone Forest – known in Bulgarian as “Pobiti kamani” – is a unique natural phenomenon. Situated around the Beloslav Lake, a huge arrangement of limestone pillars, cones and rocks dot the local landscape.

A protected area since 1938, it is one of the strangest and most impressive sights in the country, and thus one of the first to be given this official status.

The Stone Forest definitely isn’t man-made. But its true origins remain a mystery.

Aladzha Monastery

This Orthodox monastery of the 12th century is built into caves in the cliffs and surrounded by a beautiful national park.

On the monastery’s grounds in the evenings you’ll often be able to witness a show. But this ancient site is worth the visit at any time of day.
