Description

Located opposite the Cathedral in the city centre, the Clock tower was designed in 1888 and served as an observation tower for firefighters from 1890 to 1898, when the telephone replaced its function. The clockwork remained intact for the last 100 years and it still gives you the correct time! 

The idea to build the impressive city clock tower was accomplished in 1888 at the time when Krastyu Mirski was mayor of Varna. The municipality of Varna assigned to architect Sava Dimitrievich the project of a stone fire tower with a clock that should be 24 meters high. The construction site was carefully chosen - the new clock tower in the city park and the Cathedral formed the city centre boundaries of those times.
