  • Varna’s Archaeological Museum is really impressive. The museum is well structured and easy to follow. The gold treasure is great and the icons room is in my opinion the best part of it. Thank you, we really enjoyed the visit. The Archaeological Museum is a must-visit place in Varna.
  • Not so many people have heard about the pre-ancient Varna civilization. If you happen to have taken a tour in Bulgaria this museum is a must-see: you will be overwhelmed by the historical fact which it will reveal to you, the Oldest gold in the world being just one to mention! Yet my recommendation is to double check on its website the opening times as they have winter and summer options. As well as pay attention to which days of the week they have for non-working.
