Description:
The Seaside Garden of Varna is an about eight kilometre long park sloping down to the beach. There are some rare tree species and exotic plants.

Until mid 19th century the area of the present Seaside Garden (seaside park) was a bare field outside the town fortress. In 1881, after the liberation, the mayor of Varna Mihail Koloni brought up the question about a modern public park. His offer was first laughed at by the local municipal councilors but a certain fund for the project was anyway granted. Soon the park enlarged to 26 decares, 130 trees were planted, paths were cleared and ''towards nightfall alleys thronged by a long train of gentlemen and dressed up ladies''.

The Seaside Garden will always be associated with the name of the Czech Antonin Novak - a park designer specialized in the Vienna castles of Schoenburn and Belvedere. The 35 years old Novak was invited to Varna and he was assigned the post of a park director.

Nowadays the Seaside Garden is not only a nature reserve, but also a recreational place for the citizens. It's also a place of amusement as it comprises various attractions, such as The Aquarium, The Planetarium, Open Air Theatre, Kids Center, The Dolphinarium, many monuments and restaurants.
