Varna has a good historical district but I wouldn't call Varna a great city or fantastic lifestyle. You cannot drink the tap water holes in the streets a quarter size of a Volkswagen beetle irregular transportation options and high crime.

Been to Bulgaria twice to Sofia and Stara Zagora - both trips was amazed at the friendliness of everyone we met. I enjoyed the relaxed way of life and the countryside was picturesque. People there are cool and it is inexpensive. Looking forward to getting back to check out Varna, as I prefer areas near the water.

Varna is an awesome place to call home.I've lived here for 9 years and still enjoy my full time living here being a retired American.To the haters out there who think Varna is a bad place.Just keep on hating everything especially your miserable existence.Varna is a vibrant city full of warm wonderful people.To those who hate Varna don't visit, because Varna is too special for haters.
