The Sea Capital of Bulgaria
Did you know that the oldest processed gold in the world was found in Varna? Gold ornaments produced as early as 4600- 4200 BC, were found in the Varna necropolis in 1972. The Varna necropolis soon turned into a sensational scientific find, the significance of which surpasses largely the limits of the ancient history of contemporary Bulgaria. As a result of the researches, 294 tombs have been found by now. The golden objects alone, found in the examined tombs, are more than 3 000, and have a total weight of more than 6 kilograms, and their diversity is significant – more than 38 different types. The official year-round exhibition is in Varna Archaeological Museum, where besides the treasure, one can go back in time to the the Hellenistic, Roman and Late Antique epoch.
In 2016 a new "Recreational and Entertainment Zone at the Port of Varna" with area of 2.7 ha was set apart. In partnership between the Municipality of Varna and the Port of Varna this area has been socialised and has been turned into an attractive pedestrian alley with free access for all the residents and visitors of the city.
