VARNA

Overnight in quiet coastal city and seaside resort on Bulgaria’s Black Sea. In the morning, before going to Golden Sands beach, we have scrolled around the Old Town and a bar-lined waterfront promenade in 19th century Primorski Park. The town was established in the 6th century B.C. under the name of Odessos by emigrants from the town of Milet. It’s famous for the “Gold of Varna,” 6,000-year-old Thracian jewellery discovered in a necropolis, which is displayed inside the Archaeological Museum, along with Greek, Roman and Ottoman antiquities.
