Varna is a great city that is visited by hundreds of thousands of tourists each year. It has some of the best clubs and discos in Eastern Europe and prices are generally moderate.

Do not miss visiting the Aladzha Monastery (a cave monastery less than ten kilometers from Varna), the Naval Museum, the Cathedral near the Central Post, Euxinograd (a palace), the Archaeological Museum, the Drazki torpedo boat, the Ethnographic Museum, the Planetarium, the Aquarium, and the Ancient Roman baths.
There are hostels in Varna in the center, near the train station, and in the outskirts of the city on the way to Golden Sands. The price range of Varna hostels is from very low to very high. You will have no problem getting a hostel in Varna during the summer, but a lot of them are not open in the winter. Public transportation is not great (it's overcrowded and not very cheap) -- you'd better walk to your hostel in Varna.
Trains go regularly to Sofia and Plovdiv. The airport offers great connections to many European cities and there are many flights during the summer. There are many buses that will take you to the city from the airport, which is less than ten kilometers away. Do not risk taking a taxi on your own! It may cost you more than your flight ticket and can significantly hurt your budget. There are cheap taxi companies, just ask your landlord about them.

I'm from Florida but travel the Black Sea Coast a lot in Romania and Bulgaria. In addition to interesting museums and historical sites, there is great shopping from oil paintings in the center to good buys on the latest electronics at Technopolis and several modern malls.
I really like Varna and had a great time. It was good to get out of the city and I would throughly recommend it.
I am Bulgarian and live abroad, but I come every summer to Varna where I spend my summer holiday. I've always loved Varna and will always love that beautiful, gorgeous city full of life and offer everything I need for enjoying my time there. Varna for me is the most beautiful city in Bulgaria! It has amazing beaches and nearby resorts, nice greenery, a lovely Sea Garden, and is just a fantastic place to be. I love you Varna, you are the best!
