  • The Seaside Garden History
    on the Balkan Peninsula Little by little the territory of the park enlarged and in 1905 it reached to 90 decares In 1912 1913 a couple of fountain springs were built in the first part of the park and it was partially electrified In some 10 years Varna was already established as a resort centre and the rest of the park was also electrified In 1907 a National Revival Committee was established and its idea was to dedicate an alley in the second part of the park to the Bulgarian Revival Movement Its task was to erect 22 monuments in the Seaside Garden 20 in honour of outstanding activists in the liberation movement 1 in honour of Science or Enlightenment and 1 of Liberty The project started in 1911 with the monument of the famous poet and revolutionary Hristo Botev followed a year later by that of another famous revolutionary Vassil Levski This activity was interrupted by the beginning of the war and in 1920 to commemorate his anniversary and although he was still alive a monument to the great Bulgarian author Ivan Vazov was erected A few other statues were built in the course of the following couple of years and after a long break the tradition was renewed again in 1973 All the monuments were made by Varna sculptors In 1932 the municipality began discussing plans to enlarge the park to the south In 1950s the park reached its present borders to the swimming pool In 1960s flower beds covered 20 decares of the park and a rock garden and a lake were formed between the two parts of the park After the visit of world s first cosmonaut Yuriy Gagarin a Cosmonaut Alley appeared nearby the Pantheon The Pantheon of anti fascist activists built in 1961 was until recently a must visit for all graduating students and newly married couples The Bulgarian Revival Committee had initially chosen that place for the Monument of Liberty which was actually never built There were a number of other statues among which the monument commemorating the cholera stricken French soldiers in the years of Crimean War which was also situated close to the Pantheon but later on it was moved away A monument of Lenin was placed at the park entrance facing the University of Economics and in the period of 1949 1956 when the town was named Stalin a statue of Joseph Stalin was located at the park s main entrance The Seaside Garden was not only a nature reserve but also a recreational place for the citizens The first cafeteria was placed on piles and covered with straw a fountain spring was also built In 1906 the foundations of one of the city s most famous sights were laid The building of the Aquarium Marine Biological Station finished in 1911 but it was adapted for the needs of the Naval Engineering School and later on of the Fishery School It was not until 17 September 1932 that the Aquarium
