Osteuropa & Russland
is the capital city of Bulgaria. Its traditions are based on the 800 year old war between Bulgarians and the Turks. Now the Bulgarians are busy reconstructing their country and to be a part of the European Union.
Varna is about 6 hours away (by train - maximum 30 leva) from
. It has clean beaches and lots of character - lovely people and very cheap. Varna's night life is great, eating out is very cheap.
is one of the best cities in Europe, it has variety of interesting places to go and party. Girls are nice, if not the best, and I'll go to visit again for sure!
I went to
in the winter and it was pretty boring from a young person's perspective, as well as quite gloomy (and freezing). But there are a few sights, although they looked totally deserted. It was somewhat depressing.
I'm a Bulgarian living abroad and every time I go to
I'm amazed by how fast the city changes in a positive way. Bulgaria's citizens still don't receive European salaries and local people can't still consume import products, even if there is a real hunger for that. Otherwise Varna is a very nice holiday place with nice beaches, very nice walking central area, and intense night life. Last but not least, the prices are still very low compared to countries from the region like Greece and for the same quality, if not better.
I really like
and had a great time. It was good to get out of the city and I would throughly recommend it.
