Taxi / Arriving at night

The taxi company Triumf taxi has a 24/7 desk at the Arrivals hall in Varna airport, located near the entry door. The price from the Airport to hotel "Cherno more" is 10-12 levs (BGN), i.e. 5-6 euro. We recommend to use this service. It is safe, fast and relatively inexpensive.

Bus 409 operates daily from 05:45 to 23:00, every 15 minutes. The ticket price is 1 lev (50 eurocents). Buses can be followed on-line at You will travel from bus stop LETISHTE (AIRPORT) to bus stop SEVASTOPOL (The square next to Cherno more hotel). Tickets are purchased in the bus, tell to the conductor the bus stop name (SEVASTOPOL). The duration of the travel is about 25 minutes (but it depends on the traffic). Be careful to take the bus in the direction to Varna centre instead to Aksakovo (from where the bus will continue to the downtown too but it will take longer to reach Cherno more hotel).
