It is located in the middle of the beautiful park in Varna. But the contents are quite poor and old. Most of the information is in Bulgarian. The didactic projection is very good but again, only for Bulgarian speakers. Interesting if you like astronomy.

As a lover of physics and astronomy this was a must see for me. I was very happy to visit the planetarium in Varna for the first time. I was impressed by the lecturer as she kept my attention during the whole hour.
