Location: Bulgaria, Dobrich (30 min drive from Black Sea Coast)
Dobrich one of the ten largest cities in Bulgaria. Its proximity to the Black Sea makes it a preferred destination for many students. In addition, Dobrich is home to eight national and international festivals. The VUM campus is located in the very center of the city, which means that our students are one step away from art, history, various activities and entertainment in Dobrich. The beach is only 30 minutes away. VUM is located not far from the largest Black Sea bay, formed between the cape Kaliakra and the cape Galata. The Black Sea resorts of Albena, Golden Sands and St. St. Constantine and Elena, the tourist villages of the Riviera, Sunny Day and the Rusalka, as well as the tourist towns of Balchik and Kavarna are located in this area.
Varna – the third largest city in Bulgaria, just 40 minutes from the Summer University. It is known as the capital of the Black Sea in Bulgaria and was chosen as the European Youth Capital for 2017. Varna is located right on the beach, and there are always various events and events here. In addition to its bright summer life, being the European youth capital of 2017, Varna has become an even more attractive place for young people.
And if you are a history lover, we would like to mention that the Archaeological Museum of Varna is home to the oldest Gold in the world, dating back 6000 years ago, 6000 years ago!
Among the tourist attractions of the region there is also the Royal Palace in Balchik (the former residence of Queen Maria of Romania), the Botanical Garden in Balchik (with a remarkable collection of plant species from around the world), the Aladzha Monastery and the Natural and Archaeological Reserve Kaliakra.
Bulgaria full of interesting places to explore, from beautiful mountains, lakes and forests to amazing places of historical battles! Last year, students had the opportunity to join organized tours to the Royal Palace of Evksinograd, nearby golf resorts, a botanical garden and many others.
But if you are even more adventurous, you can rent a car and go on an unforgettable trip to the places that you have chosen yourself! Here you can see some photos about such trips organized by our students of the European Summer University in 2016!
