Central Military Club

REF NR: 10424

This elegant building stands on a corner at the beginning of “Princess Marie Louise” boulevard – the oldest boulevard in Varna with the most wonderful and aristocratic old houses. The Central Military club was erected in 1899 by the design of engineer Todor Boyadzhiev.

The facades contain a mixture of Neo-classical and Neo-baroque details, such as columns, arches, frontons etc. This was the place, where the officers from the Varna Regiment use to gather for concerts, weddings and the famous Officer’s grand balls. Today this place is used as a theater and a cinema called “Balgaran”.

Having recently been complety restored in 2016, it stands now as a fine example of what the building would have looked like when erected in 1899.
