Beautiful artwork and decorations. Definitely worth a few minutes of your time if you usually enjoy visiting churches and cathedrals.

This is in my opinion the number one attraction in Varna. It is an essential part of a visit to the city. The interior's design is spectacular and will be long appreciated. '

Besides Stone Forest, the Cathedral is might be the only attraction in Varna. Huge and gorgeous is a landmark right in the center of the city. ... just another church...

Very central spot of varna, looks better outside than inside and is worth entering and seeing, but in fact i ve seen better ones. The most precious for me is vibe around it. Rag sellers, gospel singers, etc.

Impressive looking on the outside but did not meet my expectations on the inside.Somehow expected it to be larger and more grander. You can buy a candle for 1 lev to light in memory of your loved ones.

Very nice cathedral in the center of Varna You can not miss it, if you go to the center of town. It is very impresive from the outside.

You can get there from golden sands with bus #409 for 3 lev. There is a bus every 30 minutes. It's so close to clock tower and beautiful walking street. The paintings in side the cathedral are so beautiful.
