 The oldest resort on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast is only 9 km north-east of Varna and 479 km east of Sofia. Its construction began in 1908 in the vicinity of St. St. Konstantin and Elena Monastery and the purpose was to receive patients ill of tuberculosis. The church itself was built at the beginning of 18th century. Today the building of the monastery is a hotel and a restaurant of high category.
Between St. Konstantin and Zlatni Pyasutsi is the small Chaika Resort-Complex offering sufficient accommodation and catering facilities. The Evksinograd Residence is located further southwards. It was built in a New Baroque style with exceedingly beautiful garden, park, fountains, and stairs leading down to the seashore.  The residence can be visited with a special personal permit and tourists can have a look around in scheduled hours and days (usually on Fridays and Saturdays, reservations on tel.: 052 393140, 393150.

Almost next to Varna is the small resort of Pochivka (Rest) offering accommodation facilities. The new means for attracting tourists are interesting, i. e. barbecue and a program performed by eminent actors who come here after their tours in the big resorts. Most of the hotels have parks and gardens, swimming pools for children.

The shore below Pochivka is interesting and picturesque with its typical rocky formations, slightly projected into the sea.
