Varna Cathedral and Nezavisimost square

Located in the centre of the city the Cathedral is one of the symbols of the Bulgarian Sea Capital. Already in the first years after the liberation of Bulgaria from the Ottoman Empire the Bulgarian Orthodox population star ted to rapidly increase. That is why the construction of the Orthodox Church started. It was also partially inspired by the orthodox Christians in the city which wanted to confirm their proimity to the Russian Patriarchate and demonstrate the separation from the Greek Patriarchate.

The honour of laying the foundation stone of the temple had Knyaz Aleander I Battenberg. He attended the opening ceremony on August 22, 1880. Especially prepared for the purpose were also the silver pick and spade used to turn the first sod. After the ceremony Knyaz Battenberg caressed all prisoners from
Varna prison with three months or less left to serve from their sentence.
