Riviera Holiday Club is a former governmental residence, which offered holiday comfort to guests of the Bulgarian government until 1989. Nowadays, in addition to an elite tourist resort, the club is a center of conference events and prominent international congresses such as the Regional Forum "Cultural Corridors of South East Europe" held under the patronage of Bulgarian President and with the participation of presidents of the Balkan countries and the XIIIth Meeting of the Heads of State of Central Europe.
The club is situated at a distance of 17 km from the city of Varna (26 km from Varna airport), in the close proximity of the Golden Sands resort.
It is an area of 12 hectares, straight onto the shore with its own beaches in cosy bays and among a magnificent park of centuries-old trees.
The offered peace, tranquility and comfort, combined with the proximity of the entertainment facilities of the "Sea capital"- Varna, make the Riviera Holiday Club an attractive place for family holidays and business tourism.
