Bulgaria’s oldest seaside resort "Saints Constantine and Helena” will mark its holiday with a rich event calendar and attractive offers for vacations and culinary experiences. The celebrations start on May 21 at 9 am in the Monastery of "Sts. Constantine and Helena” where a solemn liturgy will be held. Children’s drawing competitions will be organized, too.

The festive concert will start at 6.30 pm on the stage with the clock tower in the Primorski Shopping Center. A program including opera, ballet and folklore music has been prepared with the participation of soloists from the State Opera - Varna and dancers from the Folklore Ensemble "Varna".

For all guests of the resort there will be discounts in hotels, restaurants, spa centers and shops. The special edition of the Farmer's Market is also dedicated to the holiday.

The first holiday home in the resort opened its doors in 1908. The resort is named after the nearby monastery of "Saints Constantine and Helena” that dates back to the 14-16th century.
