THE VARNA REGION Bulgaria is also sub-divided into 28 regions which are further divided into Municipalities, the basic local administrative unit in Bulgaria. Each Municipality is autonomous with its own budget and property. Varna Region consists of 12 municipalities. Bulgaria is divided into 6 planning regions. Varna is the centre of the North-Eastern Planning Region, which includes also the districts Dobrich, Shumen, Silistra, Targovishte and Razgrad.


Varna is Bulgaria's third largest city. It was an inhabited place even before the Greeks established the colony of Odessos there about 580 B.C. Later, under the Romans and their successors, the Slavs, Varna became a major port trading with Constantinople, Venice and Dubrovnik. The name of the town (Odessos - a settlement on water) is not Greek but of an earlier linguistic origin, which suggests the presence of an older village on the same territory.


Successor to ancient civilisations, survivor of the transformations of time, the present-day city of Varna is one of the most attractive Bulgarian towns, the Pearl of the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast.
