Varna is a port city and seaside resort on Bulgaria's Black Sea, and the third largest city in Bulgaria after Sofia and Plovdiv.

After a local hotel pickup, walk (slowly) to see some of Varna's notable old Bulgarian Eastern Orthodox churches, like the early 17th-century Theotokos Panagia, the St. Athanasius (former Greek metropolitan cathedral) and the 'seamen' church of St. Nicholas the Miracle Worker.
Also, visit the State Opera house, part of the Opera and Philharmonic Society of Varna; the Stoyan Bachvarov Dramatic Theatre; the State Puppet Theatre; the Festival and Congress Centre; the Seaside Garden, Varna's largest, oldest, and best known public park (and the largest landscaped park in the Balkans); and much more.
Entry fees to the Roman Thermal, a complex of Ancient Roman baths, and the Varna Archaeological Museum, are included. Meals are not included, but a cup of coffee or a glass of wine is provided along the way.
