Among the many beautiful places on the Black Sea coast, St. Constantine and Helena stands out with its noble style of the first Bulgarian resort. Established more than 110 years ago, it continues the line of traditional elegance associated with natural water wealth, typical of classic European SPA centers.
The contemporary concept of the resort puts at the centre of the experience a holiday for connoisseurs focused on wellness opportunities for relaxation by the sea – sea therapy, balneology and SPA tourism. The location of the resort makes it possible to draw handfuls from the abundance of nature. The centuries-old coniferous and deciduous trees are the emblems of the area, and the seven mineral springs feed pools and high-end modern SPA centers, where healthcare passes through the aesthetic immersion in the beauty of the seascape.
The modern hotels offer complete care that turns a holiday into a renewing experience for mind and body. A guest’s day can begin with a seaside adventure on the picturesque coast, combined with healing treatments in one of the many SPA centers and continue with a light lunch prepared from the fresh gifts of the Bulgarian land. Afterwards, you can go shopping to the seaside and festival capital of Bulgaria – Varna, which is only 8 km away and offers daily encounters with music and the arts in its renowned museums, concert halls and galleries and its world-famous Summer Theatre – stage of the world’s first and most prestigious Ballet Competition.
The surroundings of St. Constantine and Helena also tempt with invitations for day trips. Irresistible for lovers of garden splendour is the Botanical Garden, which delights the senses from spring to autumn with its magnificent collections of irises and roses and its horse riding opportunities.
And evenings at the resort are romantic – with a gourmet dinner with a sophisticated Mediterranean taste in a stylish restaurant with a dizzying view of the waves, or a concert on an open-air stage under the stars with musicians from all over the world visiting the Varna Summer International Music Festival, one of Europe’s longest-running festivals.
Festive events brighten up the days of guests, introducing them to national culture. Folklore ensembles delight with lively performances, opera, puppet and ballet performances present the achievements of Bulgarian singers, actors and dancers, and the works of sculptors make their artistic mark among the alleys of the complex. Farmers’ markets introduce tourists to the purest eco products of the native producers, which then goes to the masterpieces of the chefs in the Culinary Fiesta. A special thematic highlight are the celebrations of grape, wine and SPA therapies.
Sts. Constantine and Helena is the seaside resort, where all four seasons provide wonderful opportunities for relaxation. Even in winter, you can enjoy the rare pleasure of taking a dip in the hot pool of the largest water complex, watching the crashing waves on the snowy shore. This is the richness of the first Bulgarian resort and it is highly appreciated by seekers of happy moments in harmony with nature.
