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

  • Beautiful cathedral. Once you go inside, it's calm and magnificent. :)

  • Well worth a visit. An atmosphere of calm prevails once inside. The architecture and frescoes are impressive and it was quite moving to see people showing their devotion.

  • The cathedral is the prominent attraction of the tourist city of Varna.. It is considered as one of the symbols of varna city.. It is said to be the second largest Orthodox church of Bulgaria.. Church has some really amazing architecture. The painting inside are really marvelous. The dome have some glass work to give light inside the building.. There is a souvenir shop inside the cathedral.. Note: If you are a tourist some money local guys can approach you for currency exchange, dont deal with them , even if they offer unbelievable rates, you may end up with fake currency. There are some sellers in street selling vintage souvenirs, and old Russian medals, most of them are fake. There Just opposite to the Cathedral there is a tourist information centre, You can get a good map of varna free of cost from this place.. this map will be helpful in roaming around in the area..

  • Looks nice, but it's the only good thing about churches. It doesn't feel holy, unless you're really into this stuff. Everything is paid from small icons to baptisms and marriages.

  • Lovely building. Nice and calm atmosphere. Good murals. Free!
