As we mentioned above, Varna is a city with a very interesting and rich past. The first traces of living in these areas come from 580 BC. The first settlement was a Greek colony, followed by the Roman Empire and Byzantium. Over the centuries, these settlements were destroyed several times, and in the 7th century AD, after the battles of the Slavs and Avars, the settlement was again destroyed, but later rebuilt by the former and called Varna. The next fate was also not kind to the city, as the city passed into different hands, so that from 1878 it would remain within the borders of Bulgaria forever. To this day, we can admire the remains of other cultures in Varna, which largely influenced the formation of this city. So you can see there, among others:
- ruins of a basilica from the 5th century
- uines of Roman buildings
- Byzantine ortifications
- monuments of Turkish architecture and many more.
