The municipal beach, Primorski Park


Primorski Park

The huge Primorski Park F [map], stretching from Varna’s port almost to the pleasant, tiny beach resort of Sv Konstantin, took years to lay out and was finally completed in 1908. It is very popular with local people, who flock here to sunbathe on Varna’s excellent municipal beach or attend pop and rock concerts throughout the summer at the open-air theatre. The numerous terraces, pubs and discos lining the beach front are full most nights all summer long.

The park has various attractions, some of dubious quality. Like the park itself, both the Naval Museum (daily 9am–5pm) with naval hardware, at the far western end of the park, and the Aquarium and Black Sea Museum (June−Sept 9am–7pm, Oct−May 9am−5pm) have seen better days, but both remain favourites with children. Also popular with children are the Planetarium (June–Sept 9am–3.30pm, shows every 90 minutes; Oct–May by prior appointment) and the Dolphinarium (shows at 10.30, noon, 3.30pm, 5pm) at the other end of the park. The Zoo (May–Sept daily 8am–8pm, Oct–Apr daily 8.30am–4.30pm) in the middle of the park features a large number of animals including camels, emus and other exotic birds, spiders, snakes, crabs, frogs, geckos and rodents.
