Of course, limiting yourself to only one place, no matter how popular, will only ever furnish you with a narrow window into the wider textures and qualities of a region. So be sure to set aside enough time to explore Bulgaria's other cultural and natural attractions. If you're looking for other places to check out, you'll find Balchik, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southwest, and Dobrich 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the south.
If you're a sports fan, you'll love seeing the PFC Cherno More Varna, doing battle at Ticha Stadium. Ticha Stadium is in Varna, 2 miles (3 kilometers) from Varna. On match days follow the river of green and white, to the stadium, then after the final siren sounds, join local soccer lovers at a nearby pub, bar or cafe and relive the games finest moments over a few cold beers.
When it's time to leave this special place, bid a fond Doviždane (farewell) to the local characters you have met and the great places you've seen.
