Cathedral Of The Assumption Of The Virgin - Review
This is the largest Bulgarian orthodox cathedral in Varna. It is also the residence of the bishopric of Varna. The cathedral is located right in the middle of the city. The panoramic view of Varna is priceless from up here, but for that you have to climb up 133 stairs of the narrow caracol. The architecture of the temple is modelled after the famous Peterhof temple in St.Petersburg. The religious people will find this to be a very spiritual experience. But it is the architecture enthusiasts who will enjoy the most. Highlights include:
- The 38m high Belfry
- The Bishop’s throne
- The Golden Onion Domes
- The murals
- The colourful Stained Glass windows

Cathedral Of The Assumption Of The Virgin, Varna Reviews
Entrance is free, there is a list of candle prices and postcards available. It was quiet inside and those taking photographs were not charged (as somebody mentioned in their review). The inside size was smaller than expected, however the paintings were intricate and mesmerising. An average visit should take no longer than 10-15 minutes.
You couldn't pass Varna without see this amazing place. The mosaic is amazing and the ambiance in there is unique. I recommend that you should read about history of religions before get there and if you know something about architecture the visit would be more meaningful.
Good ceiling paintings, alter and decor, pretty to look at but it's a bit on the small side
Very nice place, I would suggest to come on the evening since the lights make this place looks even better
Beautiful cathedral. Once you go inside, it's calm and magnificent. :)
