The unique park of Varna Free University "Chernorizets Hrabar" is included in the online catalogue "Urban Spaces for Culture". In it, a team of architects, urban planners, cultural studies experts and artists give suggestions on how Varna should preserve and develop the city's cultural life in the days of the current complex situation.
The beautiful sea view is a natural setting of the park of Varna Free University "Chernorizets Hrabar", which is located near the beach, the natural park "Golden Sands" and only 20 minutes away from the centre of Varna.
The picturesque university park was created in 2012. It was designed by the student team composed of: Arch. Hristo Chernaev and Arch. Sanya Kovacheva, under the supervision of Assoc. Prof. Nikolay Ninov, together with the company "Grass Carpets" Ltd. Over 6000 square metres of its area are suitable for outdoor events. There is an equipped stage and auditorium, flower corners, rock gardens and a rose garden. Depending on the organization of the event, it can be an ideal place for groups of 50 to 500 people.
The park is a favourite place for students and lecturers for meetings, talks, masterclasses, workshops, fashion shows and dances. Ceremonies for the opening of the new academic year and graduation ceremonies are held there. It is also the site of a number of international events and forums organised by the university and its partners. For seven years now, VFU "Chernorizets Hrabar" has been hosting an international salsa festival, in which the best dancers in the world show their talent on eight open stages. In the autumn of 2020, the UNESCO Club celebrated its anniversary with a concert by soloists from the Varna Opera on the open stage in the Eastern Park of the University.
The catalogue "Urban Spaces for Culture" contains 60 open spaces that have the potential to host concerts, exhibitions, film screenings, theatre and dance performances, fairs and creative workshops and other cultural events.
