Overview Things to do Suitability Country Info (Bulgaria)
Formerly known as Drouzhba (Friendship) until reverting to its original name in 1994, St Konstantin was the first purpose-built resort on the Black Sea coast in the 1950s. Despite its proximity to the busy town and port of Varna, this "garden" village enjoys a peaceful existence, set well off the highway and sheltered by thick bands of woodland.

This resort caters for couples and mature families seeking a good-value, unsophisticated, low-key base close enough to a major town for added diversions. Not generally a favourite with the younger crowd. The facilities at Grand Varna and Palace Hotels make it popular with visiting business delegations.

There are about a dozen properties in all, varying from basic 2-star B&Bs to 5-star Grand Varna and Palace hotels offering Western-style standards. The usual preponderance of Communist-built concrete monoliths have been improved in places by modernisation and touches of individuality.
