Being an Orthodox, I really liked the Cathedral. We spent some time during a morning liturgy and it was a nice change in the pace of the rest of our time there. Highly recommended.

Do not leave Varna without going inside this building. Due to its central location you will find it impossible not to find or miss it. So much to do within 19 minutes of the church.

Big building, & very dark inside. Nothing much happening- fresco's nothing to compare to say St. Peters.....

Varna is full of churches but the Cathedral of the Assumption is one of the most beautiful churches in Bulgaria perhaps Europe.

I didn't go in, but it is beautiful from the outside! This is a couple blocks from the Archaeological Museum and visible from just about everywhere along the pedestrian street.

Centre of Varna stands the amazing architecture of the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin. This standing Church represents the symbol and the main emblem of history in Varna.

Small, beautiful interior which seems to have had some renovation. Takes no more than 1/2 hour to walk around. Cathedral lovely when lit up at night.
