Antique baths were built in the II century and were used until the end of the III century. An impressive bath complex the size of a football field is located in the center of Varna among residential buildings. It is believed that these were the largest baths on the Balkan Peninsula and the fourth largest in the entire Roman Empire. Today, even by the surviving ruins, one can judge the scale of this ancient structure.
Nice place but would be good some virtual visualisations
Amazing site! We went on a Saturday in the middle of summer and there was almost no one there. Entrance cost a pittance. Definitely worth a visit!
Great historical site but not much has been done to elevate it. There are signs with the name of what each room would have been but no descriptions of how they would be used. It was cheap though so still worth a visit.

Compared to price and experience it was okay. There are good explanations and you can imagine how it was.
Awesome place to go back in time!
I wouldn't expect to find this in Bulgaria, which was a pleasant surprise. The site is decent, it's pretty big. You can actually see some of the original walls of the ancient structure. It's a must see in my opinion in Varna. It could .. Read more »be made more accessible for kids and wheelchair.
The fact that few visitors come here makes it easy to take photos.
Being one of the main attraction in the town, and myself being a student of history, this place is a little underwhelming. It's quite small as it's only a bathhouse, which is understandable, but they really have not done much to restore or .. Read more »help present the place. Entry is only 5 lv but you can actually see most of the site by just looking in from the surrounding streets. I'd recommend it if you have a half an hour kill, but just don't expect to much.
I guess it’s an important place to visit while in Varna, but there’s nothing to do, except walking. There is just one brief description of the Roman Baths, but the rest is just ruins and some pictures of how it used to look. It’s a .. Read more »shame, cause the place has such potential.

Quite large complex from the 2nd century, the largest Roman bath in BG.

Beautiful landmark. Super, super nice gentleman who sells the tickets helped us a lot with getting a taxi, made a phone call for us because the operators couldn’t speak English. Made our day!
Ancient Roman baths. Definitely worth seeing if someone is really interested in history. But if you are not history geek, then on the site you will only see some small ruins without anything exciting in particular.
A pile of rocks. A lot of undergrowth. Some information, but could do better. 5 leva. Cash only.
A tiny particle of Ancient Rome in Varna. Definitely worth to visit. It would be great to visit it with profession guide to learn more about the place.
Pretty interesting place. Apparently dates from 200-300 AD. There are diagrams in different areas to help you imagine what it looked like when it was in use. In a couple more protected areas you can still see some of the pink stucco over the bricks t.. Read more »hat has survived for 1800 years, so try to imagine smooth, finished walls instead of the exposed brick that you see today. Well worth the price of admission (2.50 Euro (converted) when I was there in September 2021). Also, just like the rest of Varna, some cats live there, which I find charming.
Definetly must to see in Varna in the case you like history, architecture or just take nice pictures with awesome background.
I think the site is well conserved, wonderful let breath into a quartal of buildings, but it is left mainly under the grass, there are old inscriptions of what you are seeing, there is no one from the staff that can tell something about. Anyway, t.. Read more »here are explaining boards at the entrance.
There is a ladies' room, and it is clean.
I'm in Varna and so I thought why not visit the 4th largest Roman baths ruins in Europe. The entry is 5 Lev (a little over $3USD) and you will probably spend about 30 minutes walking through the ruins. There is not a ton to it. It is mostly ..

The biggest plus is that it is easily accessible if you are strolling through Varna and want to soak up some of the culture.
A lot of historycal walls were preserved. Most of the site places are organized. There are also a few rooms that are left unattendend.
Overall, a nice location to visit in Varna.
Small place, you can see everything throw fans, better to read some history of the place before come over
Ancient site with ruins. You can see some plans of what would have been the construction.
10-15 minutes visit for 5 leva per adult. Could be more taken care of, a lot of vegetation not trimmed.
Fabulous Roman history right on the Black Sea, well worth a visit.
Amazing place. Those Romans had a good time in their heated baths?
Who would've guessed that you can find in Bulgaria the 4th largest Roman baths in Europe? Could be better preserved though
Beautiful place but the conservation / restoration is not so good, it could be better.
No student entrance as well, which is a bit disappointing compared to all the other tourist places
5 lv entrance, worth it to see the size of the therms but the site feels abandoned and badly maintained. Grass is not cutted, information panels are mainly unreadable and some places are not accessible due to growing trees. Makes you wonder where is .. Read more »the money going...

Love it ! Ancient ruins in the heart of the city. Must see
Nice place , but needs more attention from the municipality to be cleaned and tidied up.
Wish it was better maintained, same as many spots.
SPA, as it used to be.
Interesting place to visit.
This place is huge. Needs more work on it, but still facinating.
Biggest roman baths I've seen so far on my travels. Very interesting.
Very impressive Roman therme, one can imagine how large the building must have been. A guidance would help.
Was about to visit the place, but decided to check it out from outside and to be honest didn't look at all appealing to me. Kinda abandoned / neglected. Lots of loose parts of fittings, bottles, garbage. Not because the 4lv entrance fee is an ex.. Read more »pensive one, but when paying anything for a historical place you do expect to see the place at least well maintained if no other thing.

Great historic site at the greek quarter of the city.
It was a empty large space. Very neglected. For this price I definitely do not recommend.
A great site to visit, quite a spacious one. Would really help if the visitors got some sort of a booklet/description leaflet to be able to understand more about the site, as the plaques placed on the site don't have any info except a map of the.. Read more » place and room names
