The first visit of the day will be to Roman Thermae, the largest baths in the European part of the Roman Empire, dating from 2nd-3rd centuries. En-route, admire the Assumption Cathedral, Eastern Orthodox church in operation, which graceful lines are the inseparable part of the cityscape. The interior is decorated with beautiful murals and woodcarving. Continue your tour to Archaeological Museum, that houses the finds from the Varna Calcolithic Necropolis. There is also a permanent display of icons and church items. Proceed for a picturesque drive along the coast northwards of Varna for a visit to Aladzha Rock Monastery - one of the hundreds mediaeval (13-14 centuries) rock monasteries found in the North Eastern part of Bulgaria. The monastery is located amidst lush greenery creating a mysterious atmosphere. The premises of the monastery are arranged on two levels and have been cut in an almost 40 meters high sheer limestone rock.
