Varna | Варна

Varna ( Bulgarian: Варна ) is the third largest city in Bulgaria after Sofia and Plovdiv, with a population of 351,552(10.01.2006) . It is the capital of Varna Province and an important port in the eastern part of the country, located on the Black Sea coast close to Lake Varna.

Varna, the biggest city on the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast is commonly referred as the Sea Capital of Bulgaria. The city was also the base of the Bulgarian Navy. Currently, there is a Naval Museum with a museum ship torpedo boat Drazki. The archaeological museum contains some of the finds from the so-called "Gold of Varna", a cache of Chalcolithic grave-goods which are the oldest gold treasure in the world.

I love this city!

Hey Bulgarians, you should really take better care of this thread. There is so much more to see from Varna.

Varna has no skyscrapers but it nonetheless has a good skyline when you come from the west on the highway, or when you're at Galata, mostly because it's on a plateau above the sealine
Great city, hope they take care of it so that it develops well

It's a good questions. Many countries on the same latitude as Bulgaria, Croatia for example, have palm trees, but we don't. Our winters are too harsh unfortunately.

But it you look at it from a positive point of view, we have a booming ski industry.

Black sea is not Mediterranean, It's open to the north , there are no mountains to protect the influx of cold air from Siberia . That's why there's no Mediterranean vegetation . Some spots on Black Sea like Sochi in Russia for example have microclimate and it's milder than elswhere so they can have palmtrees.

Why are you quoting me?
But yeah, in some winters the cold artic air just rushes in along the coast like a funnel, and it gets freezing cold, but otherwise it's not Quebec, even though harsh winters are always spectacular with the ice along the sea, etc.

They have palms in pots that they take out in the seagarden during the summers.
