Generally there are a lot of furniture shops around the train station area - I wouldn't go to the bus station unless you have something specific in mind. You could also try:

although I have no personal experience of them.

Generally there are stacks of furniture shops in Varna though they tend not to be in the dead centre. Can be difficult without a car, I think the area around the train station has the highest density and therefore best choice.

I bought sofas, beds, tables and chairs for my house in Balchik from a furniture e-shop. Here is their site:
They did the order for 3 weeks ,delivered it to my house and took everything inside the house as a free service. It really saves you lots of troubles.

Hi All,

Be careful with Technopolis - the prices are so high but they do have a vast amount of goods!! In Rousse we are lucky enough to have a huge Metro close by and their prices are so much cheaper than Technopolis. Metro don't have much furniture but their electrical appliances (audio, visual, kitchen) etc are very good - beware of bulgarian made appliances though - dont mean to be critical - but they arent very good, but are cheap - guess you pay for what you get?

Also a quick note, I would advise shopping outside of Varna, its well known that the prices are higher than most other cities.

B xx

if you can find technomarket ( in your area, it is a good place, better choice then technopolis (specially with high quality products) and lower prices.

onHi and thanks all for your suggestions

I went to Bulgaria last weekend and came back on Monday. I timed it wrong as it was sunny on friday - rain and wind on saturday - snow on sunday and sunny on monday when I came back, never mind.

I walked around Varna with a friend of mine from Sliven, it was cold and raining and miserable, but we walked and bussed and cabbed and walked and saw loads of shops, went to rail and bus station but nothing I saw really hit me.

So, Sat eve I went back to Kavarna where there is a shop and where on Monday before returning home I bought a few bits.

I bought a corner sofa which can also open to a double bed, and a matching chair which also is a single bed, both very well made and very good quality upstolstery etc. I also bought a coffee table and a tv table type cupboard.

For one of the bedrooms I bought a huge king size bed and good ortho mattress, a triple door wardrobe, a chest of drawers with a mirror on top, two bedside cabinets and an ottoman.

All of the furniture is made there and can be pre-ordered but they have a large selection of everything in the shop itself from irons to satellite stuff and cookers and fridges - basically everything you would need for the home is there and a very good selection.

Even better news is that all the stuff I bought cost 2100lev - they can deliver and install - however, how much outside of Kavarna I would not know, I will be back out there at christmas where I shall buy a tv and stuff for the other two bedrooms and a dining table.

Also, while freezing around Varna on saturday I went to the Metro centre (Costco) where the towels, sheets and other household stuff is available - also I found a full size pool table which if I can convince the wife I will use instead of a dining table (yea dream on!)

So, that was my weekend and after looking around Varna, I found all I wanted in my own town - worth a visit if you are around that area, it is in the centre of the town and you cannot miss it - Mebeli - it is called

hope it helps

(Karen alias Rookie - they do not have a website unfortunately so you will need to go there and choose - but because they have a large selection in the shop you could possibly buy and have it delivered the next day)
