Virgin Mary Panagia Orthodox Church, Varna

Virgin Mary Panagia Orthodox Church, Varna

Founded in 1602, this church is situated next to the Roman Baths. It was burnt down and then restored in 1640. Until 1914 the church was under the tutelage of the Greek Archdiocese. Closed for ten years, it was reopened in 1924. The most important treasure of this church is its icons. The church itself is rather small due to the strict regulations imposed on Christian churches by the Ottoman rulers.
