Catholic Church “Immaculate Conception of St. Virgin Mary”

It is one of the two Catholic temples on the territory of Varna, open to worship. The church is the first Catholic prayer home built in Varna after the Liberation and one of the few objects of Gothic architecture.

It is situated in one of the largest ensembles of ancient European architecture from the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. The first sod for it was made in 1882 by Prince Alexander I Battenberg. Construction was carried out in the period 1883-1885.

Since the establishment of the Communist power in 1944, the Catholic community in Bulgaria has been hostile to traitors and spies of Western countries and the Vatican. The closure of Catholic churches and schools throughout the country begins. The service in the sanctuary of Varna was finally banned in 1973, the church was plundered and closed, and as a result it began to collapse. In the period 2006-2013, under the project of arch. Vladimir Rachev and with the active support of the Vatican and other benefactors, the temple was restored and open to worship.

Monastery “St. St. Konstantin and Elena”

9 km to the northeast of Varna is the monastery “St. St. Constantine and Elena”. It is not known when it was founded, but the legends tell that a monastic brotherhood lived here in the 16th century and connected its emergence with the miraculous icon of the patrons of Christianity St. Constantine and St. Elena and the healing spring. This spring is still preserved.

During the Russian-Turkish War of 1828-1829 the monastery was destroyed. Several years later, thanks to the efforts of two brothers, the heroomonas – Theodosius and Agapi Kantardzhievi from Tarnovo, began his resumption.

Synagogue
There is a working synagogue of the Jewish Eskenazi in Varna. It was built between 1908 and 1910, when German and Russian Jews settled in the city.
Unfortunately, after September 9, it was used by sports clubs, a concrete slab was poured in the center of the hall, and one of the walls was slaughtered to make an auxiliary room.
Its present look is completely renovated in its original look, but it is also broken through the modern building, which is reminiscent of the glass dome on the top of the building. It works today mainly as a business building housing a small part of the synagogue.
