Here’s a cool postcard from Bulgaria! This is like a part vintage, part multiview and perhaps part faux maxicard showing the sights of Varna, Bulgaria’s third-largest city. Varna can be found on the eastern coast, right next to the Black Sea, and it’s considered to be a seaside resort. This “Sea Capital of Bulgaria” is an old city, with inhabitation dating back to around 500-600 BC! Despite as much, it remains a city with some particularly modern accommodations and attracts people of all ages. One major point of attraction is the Varna Archaeological Museum. This museum, which started out in a room of a high school, houses over 100,000 objects and counting, which includes the statue of Apollo you see in the lower-right corner, dating back to the 2nd and 3rd centuries. The museum is also home to the oldest gold treasure in the world, dating back as far as 4600 BC! It was discovered in a burial at the Varna Necropolis – moral of the story: you can’t take your riches to the grave, ‘cause someone within the next 7,000 years will probably take it from ya anyway! Above the headless Apollo statue is the Roman Baths of Varna, the 4th-largest in Europe. These baths were built in the 2nd century and used ‘til about the 3rd (so pretty much the timeframe of the Apollo statue – no wonder he’s naked!) I thought it was neat that these baths had a few rooms that varied by water temperature: the frigidarium for cold water, the tepidarium for warm water, and the caldarium for hot water. APFY labels the frigidarium-goers as insane #teamhotwater. Then to the left of Apollo is the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin, which only dates back to the late 1800s. Little tough to see but this is one beautiful building! In addition to what you see on the outside, the inside also has some lovely stained-glass paintings from the 1950s. Thank you so much for this awesome postcard, Gergana!
