EXCURSIONS FROM VARNA PORT

HALF DAY CITY TOUR OF VARNA, DURATION: 3 h

Varna is Bulgaria's third largest city. It was an inhabited place even before the Greeks established the colony of Odessos there about 580 B.C. Later, under the Romans and their successors, the Slavs, Varna became a major port trading with Constantinople, Venice and Dubrovnik. In 1393 it was captured by the Turks, who made it an important military centre. Nowadays it is the main port for both naval and commercial shipping and, adjacent as it is to the coastal resorts of Golden Sands, St. Constantine (Drouzhba) and Albena, it has a cosmopolitan atmosphere. The main sights to visit are: the Ancient Roman Baths, The Catholic Cathedral dating from the seventeenth century, the Museum of History, The Sea Garden, etc.

Nowadays the monastery is inactive and it’s a historical and architectural monument. It is located in 40 m high rock and consists of a complex system of cells, churches, chapels and other premises connected with passages cut in the limestone.  Its name “Aladzha” comes from the Turkish word for colourful - "aladjha" and was given to it due to the impressive frescoes next to the main entrance.

EXCURSIONS FROM NESSEBAR OR BURGAS PORT

HALF DAY CITY TOUR OF NESSEBAR, DURATION: 2 h, NO TRANSPORT IS NEEDED IN CASE THE DISEMBARCATION PORT IS IN NESSEBAR

Drive to Nessebar - one of the oldest towns in Europe, well known for its impressing monuments from the Antiquity, fascinating architecture from the Middle Ages and the National Revival period. The town is situated on a small peninsula and on the land jutted out into the sea. Its beach is considered to be the best along the Black Sea Coast. The churches of Nessebar are 41. Not all of them have preserved their full brilliance but even their present condition strongly impresses all visitors. One of the oldest sights is the Basilica situated on the sea-shore, built most probably at the beginning of 5th century. The Old Bishop`s Residence located in the centre of the town, is probably the most imposing one of all churches in Nessebar. The Old Town is part of the UNESCO World Heritage List.
