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 - Write a Review

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

  • 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.

  • The most beautiful church where we got married, lovely memories❤️peaceful place🙏

  • It's a beautiful place and all, but it's also filled with micro transactions from the entrance to the exit. Even as you enter you are bombarded with all sorts of commercial products. You have to pay for everything in this church. The outside facade is also unclean.

  • The most amazing place in Varna. When you enter the cathedral it takes your breath away. Truly magnificent.
