Life in Varna: the pros and cons.
Varna along with Bourgas is the most popular city for property buyers from the post-Soviet space. Perhaps, Varna is even more popular than Burgas – this large (third largest city in the country), where there is everything necessary for life … and even a little more. Tourists come here who have chosen to rest the northern coast of Bulgaria; real estate in Varna is looked for by those who fell in love with the country and wanted to come here more often.
A large city with a developed infrastructure. There is everything: museums and theaters, shops and entertainment centers, schools and institutes. In Varna there are exhibitions and various events, life here does not freeze day and night regardless of the season; Varna is the sea capital of Bulgaria. The sea in walking distance – this means a lot for those who during the life had the opportunity to splash in gentle waves only 2-4 weeks per year; The great Russian diaspora and the absence of a language barrier. In Varna, as in many resort towns, almost all speak Russian. Communicate with compatriots is also easy: many live here all year round or come for the summer. There are Russian clubs, special courses for Russian-speaking, Russian “occupied” for children; Mineral springs. Right on the city beach you can take a healing hydrosulfur bath – of course, for free. And this is not the only way to improve your health in Varna; Consulate of Russia in Varna In Varna there is an airport, a railway station and bus stations, the Russian and Ukrainian consulates (the latter, however, is closed): to live here is really convenient. Unlike the resorts, Varna is suitable for year-round living; In the resort city there are many opportunities for business development; Historical monuments and interesting places. It would seem that this is not very important in everyday life, and yet: interesting museums, remains of Roman baths, old churches in Varna. In a word, there is something to see.
Disadvantages of life in Varna:
Crime. Throughout the world, scammers and thieves prefer to “work” in resort towns. Of course, compared to, say, Moscow, Varna is a very quiet city, but here comparison with other Bulgarian cities will no longer be in favor of Varna. It is necessary to travel carefully in buses, watch your things and always lock up cars, including in parking lots in front of supermarkets; Prices. Real estate in Varna and the region is on average 15-20 percent more expensive than in other regions, even in Sofia. The cost of rent is also high. In shops and cafes prices may be different, but in general in Varna to live more expensive than in cities that are at a distance from the sea; Gypsy quarter in Varna Climate. In the summer, a refreshing breeze from the sea gives pleasure. In winter, fresh sea breeze turns into a dank cold wind. Increased humidity is not suitable for everyone: asthmatics, for example, in Varna, it is better not to settle. In addition, high humidity is also wet sheets, mold in the corners and other delights; Many people – many problems. Find a place for parking in the center can be difficult. In Varna there are traffic jams and even – surprisingly, but true! – queues; Varna gives the impression of not very well-groomed and sometimes dingy town. City beaches are not very good, and on the streets garbage sometimes throw past urns. And we are not talking about gypsy quarters, which produce a truly terrible impression.
So is it worth buying an apartment (house) in Varna or not? There is no unambiguous answer to this question. Those who need a drive and a busy life, choose life near the sea in one of the largest cities in Bulgaria. Those who are milder in peace and security prefer neighboring towns, for example, Dobrich, from where you can reach Varna in 30-40 minutes. Those who yearn for communicating with their compatriots, in Varna, there will always be someone to talk to in their native language. For those who dream of a solitary life, it is better to choose cities a little further from the coast.
Of course, everything is known in comparison, therefore, both the advantages and disadvantages of Varna are rather arbitrary. Someone, having hardly seen this city, understands, there is no better place on earth. Someone falls in love with Varna over time, and someone can not get used to this place and is looking for another home in Bulgaria, where he will feel more comfortable.
In any case, do not limit yourself to real estate inspection only in Varna: it is advisable to study other proposals, which, perhaps, will be no less interesting.
Alternative ways to treat us with coffee.
Everything is as it is written. We in Varna also like an active cultural life & # 8212; constantly something happens, and a large number of interesting Russian and Russian-speaking people, and proximity to the sea. It’s nice to visit the sea even in winter. And there are also white swans wintering. And, by the way, the wind more often than not from the sea is cold, but vice versa & 8212; from the hills, from your plateau.
That’s about 100% of car parks. I did not expect that in a fairly small by the standards of Russia, the city would be so difficult to park.
Thanks for the comments. Regarding car parks especially & # 8212; after Dobrich all the time you have to remember that in Varna it is difficult, especially in the center, if for example you go to the consulate.
