Bulgaria – St Constantine and Helene Resort

Published: 18.8.2018
St. Contantine and Helene resort (Sveti Konstantin i Elena in Bulgarian) is the oldest Bulgarian resort that was established in 1946. The town is about 10 km from Varna. A short walk away is another famous seaside resort - Golden Sands.

Originally, Druzhba was the name of this town. Once it used to be a sanatorium for patients with tuberculosis. The internationally renowned bath resort dates back to the socialism era.
The city of St. Constantine and Helene is a real holidaymaker. Wherever possible, there are large hotel complexes. Accommodation is available in different quality, but it should be borne in mind that four-star hotels here do not fully meet our standards. The hotel rooms are nice, clean and regularly maintained, but expect even a modest version of the meals even at stays all inclusive. It is also good to prepare for the fact that very few local speakers speak English. The resort is more suitable for families with children. Children will gain a lot of new friends during the first day already. Kids will do many activities afterwards together.

The town beyond hotel developments, unfortunately, is not that well-maintained. However, downtown is vibrant. There are many stalls, restaurants, merry-go-rounds, and a kids train ride from time to time. We go to the center regularly and we always buy some souvenir - beautiful dresses, soaps with amazing odour, spices or wine that is very tasteful in Bulgaria. Prices are lower than in the Czech Republic, which is still stimulating us. We can also recommend the local fabulous ice cream and enjoy the seafood in the restaurants.

The city of St. Constantine and Helene gained its present name after a local 16th-century monastery. This one is located in the center but somewhat merges with the surroundings. I recommend that you take the first look at some internet website to get an idea of how it looks. But don't expect to see a typical monastery. Another local attraction is the sulfur spring (46 ° C). Close to the main beach called Sahara, there is a spring that runs from a metal pipe to a natural pool where there are still a lot of tourists.

The main attraction here, however, is the sea. Despite the tourists' inactivity, the water is crystal clear, small sea shells are scattered on beaches with golden sand. The salinity of the water is relatively low, there are no sea urchins or jellyfish. Every few meters the safety of the local sailors is checked. For a fee, you can take a water scooter, a pedal, or be towed by a waterboat or an inflatable banana.

St. Constantine and Helene resort is the ideal place for a great, easy-going holiday. Which both individuals and families with children can enjoy. In the area, there are many interesting places to visit.
