We barely had time to admire the decor outside the swimming pool of our Hotel Dimyat, because this Sunday was our only change to explore Varna. Tomorrow we will spend a full day travelling back to Switzerland so after a swim we were out walking
First a fancy coffee at a nearby open plan restaurant
Welcome to McDonalds, alternate spelling included
Well, a mediocre clothes shop in this instance
Journey to Varna cathedral
Our first introduction at the Cathedral tells us to avoid Pick Pockets!
As we have commented before. Given our religious persuasions we spend a huge amount of time visiting Religious icons. Ah, we like irony.
You can pay money to get a candle which you light and place in some sand. There is a full time candle remover and reorganised walking around due to volume of candles consumed
Just a few of the spectacular views. See full Picasa album for more
Oh yes, we did donate to the Cathedral fund, AND we paid for the photography pass!
Interesting to see the alternative marketing. This is from Nestle Bulgaria.
Streetside coffee machines abound
Are these waste bins a communist standard? We have this design in Poland too!
Our visit to Varna Mall resulted in 0 purchases. But we tried hard.
Time for a spot of lunch at the Fancy Restaurant
We exit the Mall and our goal is to walk to the industrial part of town.
Just close to the Mall is a different world with some pretty basic living accommodation
Arrival at the train yard. It a mixture of current and derelict rolling stock
Ancient rolling stock
Eventually we get back to the beach
Agata takes the opportunity to get barefoot
I still can't decide if this is a genuine or replica F40
More communist relics
The Motorbike wall
In the evening the beaches are manicured
Farewell Dinner to all
Varna Cathedral by night
