Sights to see
A whole lot of excitement, attractions, concerts, shows, natural phenomena and an aqua park are expecting you in Golden Sands Resort.
Ljuljak Hotel is situated 5 kilometres away from Aladja Monastery, which you can reach by car, by bus or even on foot. The monastery is a tourist attraction. There you can see colourful murals and the preserved living quarters of the early Christians, which have been carved out in the rock.
We recommend that you visit the town of Balchik, which is only 10 kilometres away from Golden Sands. There you can enjoy the amazing collection of exotic plants in the Botanical garden and relax in the eye-soothing summer residence of the Romanian Queen Mary, who left her heart and soul at the Bulgarian seaside.
You don’t have to travel to England to see the standing stones of Stonehenge. Instead you can visit the magnificent rock phenomenon of Pobiti Kamani, located only 18 kilometres south of Varna and covering an area of 7 square kilometers. This geological phenomenon dates back to approximately 50 million years ago when the territory of southeastern Bulgaria used to be prehistoric seabed. Today the limestone columns, which look like stuck into the surrounding sand, reach up to 11 metres above the sea level and have given shelter to rare animal and plant species, which makes it an attractive tourist destination in Golden sands.
Another unforgettable experience is a trip to the Cape of Kaliakra, 40 kilometres north of Golden Sands Resort. There you can see the remnants of fortified walls and, if lucky, meet some of the rare land and sea animal and bird species who live in the protected territory.
Do not miss the acrobatics, balancing, music, singing, dances and games with the audience of the dolphins in Festa Dolphinarium in Varna. From Tuesday to Sunday you can watch the dolphin shows, conducted in four languages at a time – Bulgarian, Russian, German and English. It is a one-of-a-kind show and you can watch it only 17 kilometres away from Golden Sands Resort.
