This cathedral is not only impressive from the outside, but it repays a visit to the inside. The walls are covered in artwork in glowing colours, the various icons and stations are sumptously carved and it all presents a glorious picture of faith. Even for...More

I like to walk in and see the icons. This is a big cathedral, quiet place where you can seat and pray. Clean and well organized. There is a gift shop in front.

The cathedral is in Varna centre .My religion is Christian -orthodox.Some people believe when you go in the middle of church that you will get pure energy.

Being an Orthodox, I really liked the Cathedral. We spent some time during a morning liturgy and it was a nice change in the pace of the rest of our time there. Highly recommended.

Do not leave Varna without going inside this building. Due to its central location you will find it impossible not to find or miss it. So much to do within 19 minutes of the church.

Big building, & very dark inside. Nothing much happening- fresco's nothing to compare to say St. Peters.....

Varna is full of churches but the Cathedral of the Assumption is one of the most beautiful churches in Bulgaria perhaps Europe.

I didn't go in, but it is beautiful from the outside! This is a couple blocks from the Archaeological Museum and visible from just about everywhere along the pedestrian street.

Centre of Varna stands the amazing architecture of the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin. This standing Church represents the symbol and the main emblem of history in Varna.
