Saints Constantine and Helena Monastery - numerous churches and chapels have been erected on the Black Sea coast; some of them still exist, others have been destroyed in the course of the centuries. They were built by church benefactors as a tribute to particular saints. One of these medieval cloisters is St Constantine and Helena Monastery. There is no precise dating of the monastery’s founding. According to one of the accounts it happened at the beginning of XVIII c. During the Russo-Turkish war of 1828–1829, a part of the Russian troops was stationed in the area of monastery. After the troops had been gone, the hospital premises were turned into cells, which, together with the church, made the place a monastery centre.

Two venerable hieromonks – the brothers Teodosi and Agapi Kantardzhiev – came here in 1832. Father Teodosi organized and managed to establish St Demetrius Monastery. Meanwhile his brother, Father Agapi, reconstructed Sts Constantine and Helena. In January 1882 the Council of Ministers decided that “St Demetrius” monastery should be acquired for a summer residence - Euxinovgrad.

It is the summer of 1908 that is considered to be the start of the first modern sea resort in Bulgaria – St Constantine. The man, who created the Seaside Park in Varna – the Czech Anton Novak – began constructing today’s park round the monastery in 1925. The resort’s name was “Druzhba” (Friendship) until 1992, and the monastery ensemble was declared a museum, with divine services only during the tourist season. In 1992 the resort was renamed “Saints Constantine and Helena” – a name, worthy of such a place.
