About Varna

Varna – is the third largest city in Bulgaria. It is known as the capital of the Black Sea in Bulgaria and it was chosen as the European Youth Capital for 2017. Varna is located on the Black Sea coast, and there are always various events here. In addition to its bright summer life, being the European youth capital of 2017, Varna has become an even more attractive place for young people. And if you are a history lover, it is worth knowing that the Archaeological Museum of Varna is home to the oldest Gold in the world, dating back to 6000 years ago.

Among the tourist attractions in the region are also the Royal Palace in Balchik (the former residence of Queen Maria of Romania), the Botanical Garden in Balchik (with a remarkable collection of plant species from around the world), the Aladzha Monastery and the Natural and Archaeological Reserve Kaliakra.
Varna University of Management is based in Varna.

Dobrich is one of the ten largest cities in Bulgaria. Its proximity to the Black Sea makes it a preferred destination for many students. In addition, Dobrich is home to eight national and international festivals. Varna University of Management (VUM) campus in Dobrich is located in the very center of the city, which means that our students are one step away from art, history, various activities and entertainment in Dobrich. The beach is only 30 minutes away.

VUM is located not far from the largest Black Sea bay, formed between the cape Kaliakra and the cape Galata. The Black Sea resorts of Albena, Golden Sands and St. St. Constantine and Elena, the tourist villages of the Riviera, Sunny Day and the Rusalka, as well as the tourist towns of Balchik and Kavarna are located in this area.

Albena is a major Black Sea resort in northeastern Bulgaria, situated 12 km (7 mi) from Balchik and 30 km (19 mi) from Varna. Albena is served by Varna Airport. Albena is one of the purpose-built resorts on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast and has a uniform and unique architectural style. Although it was built on an empty ground in the 1960s, now this is in fact a small resort town with its own downtown, streets, squares and even internal public transport — dedicated little “trains” circulate on schedule along their routes within the resort.
