Must see in Varna. Very close to the center and then you can walk around there. There are many taxis in front of the cathedral but a lot are with crazy high prices. Always check the prize before you go, price per km should be no more than 1 bg lev. I recommend to not take any taxis standing there.

It's a very large cathedral in center of Varna. Very nice interiour and located just across tourist info center. There are parking around (but payable). Must see if you like churches. Entrance is free all the time.

Visited the Cathedral with my Mum during our holiday and it was one of the things we looked up before arriving for something we wanted to visit.

We certainly were not disappointed, it was not the biggest cathedral but the inside is absolutely beautiful. The entry is free and we definitely recommend visiting.

The cathedral is a beautiful and impressive building, nicely situated in the city centre of Varna. Entering the cathedral is for free, but it doesn't provide any information in English.
