In 681 the city was revived by the great Bulgarian Khan Asparuh. By this time dated the first mention and recognition in the Byzantine chronicles of the name Varna. In the realm of Old Bulgaria Varna was an important center of Christianity and commerce, had relations with Constantinople, Dubrovnik, Venice and Genoa.

In 1391 Varna was conquered by the Ottoman army, and only on July 28, 1878 it was finally freed by Russian troops.

Varna necropolis was discovered accidentally when laying cable in the industrial area. Further excavations amazed archaeologists. More than 3000 items were found in a virgin burial. The findings were dated to the last V century BC. These findings are highly competitive to Egyptian ones.

Another unexplained and mysterious phenomenon is located 18 km away from Varna and covers an area of 7 km ?. The fanciful formed columns of 10 m height and a width of 3 m suggested of limestone origin hollow or filled with sand. Such formation is unique in the world and scientists still have not reached a consensus regarding its origin. Proponents of organic theory say that its a coral reefs and the plain is the ocean bottom, which was here 50 million years ago. From 1938 the Reserve is under the patronage of UNESCO.
