From the outside the walls look pretty shabby and there are beggars and people trying to sell you things and taxi drivers convincing you to take a taxi somewhere you don't want to go! But once inside (free entry) it is beautiful. The ceilings were...More

The church is located in the city center and it´s a dominant symbol of the city. It´s huge and beautiful. You must see it!

The Cathedral is right in the centre of the city and it stands tall and proud, when greeting the visitors. Inside, I've seen some colorful, artistic stained glasses. It's worth to see, it's simple but in the same time sacred and spectacular.

We spent a week in varna with kids. Had a great time. However this is not a place to spend time. A neglected cathedral from the outside and very simple inside. There are many other nicer parta in varna.

The building is spectacular, insided and out. The walls are covered with paintings, from the floor to the roof. Many worshipers came to light candles and say a private prayer. Nice peacefull corner for quite reflection, even for non-believers.

One of the biggest landmarks in town, we did not have the chance to look inside but it is stunning from outside

This cathedral is free to visit. It’s a beautiful orthodox church with a lot of wall paintings. When we visited this church there was a ceremony going on. The children really liked it.
