Family walk round the Lago di Varna lake, ideal also for buggies. An absolute must-do is a jump into the cool waters.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: From October 2018 until the completion of the works, fishing and bathing are prohibited. The military authority is recovering war material. The walk is partly accessible.
Today we decide to make a comfortable walk that is not too long and ideal also with buggies or small kids. In the industrial zone of Varna (at the Gostner fuel station), we follow the indication “Vahrner See/Lago di Varna” and park our car on the indicated parking space near the camping site, under a shady tree.
In clockwise direction, we start our walk round the lake. Along the lake we pass by a tavern, right at the beginning. Afterwards the asphalted road transforms into a forested path and we approach the biotope at the lakeside. Since 1977 the lake has been under natural protection. From the lakeside you can by the way observe different species of dragonflies that have their natural habitat in this place. There is also a historic shooting range.
Soon after we reach the beach, a lovely lawn with direct access to the lake, where we stop for swimming. After this pleasure, we walk towards the southern lakeside, where kids play tarzan on a laina, jumping into the water. Across the forest, we reach our starting point.
Indication: Ideal tour for a family walk, not only thanks to the possibility to swim and to stay at the lakeside. Often crowded in the weekends, preferably do the tour during the week.
