Varna is Bulgaria's biggest city on the Black Sea coast and a popular tourist destination, university center and port. The famous necropolis belonging to the Varna Culture is dated to 5 000 years bc. With such long hisotry it's no wonder the city is full of museums, including Varna Archaeological Museum founded in 1888, Naval Museum and Natural History Museum. Once your head gets full of history, you can relax on beautiful sandy beach or take a refreshing stroll in the Primorski Park.

Laurium is a picturesque Greek town with great atmosphere and ancient ruins at each turn. Visit the archeological museum for artifacts dating back to 5 000 BC or the Mineralogical Museum to see traces of the town's mining history.
