History of Varna Naval Academy

The Maritime University N. Y.  Vaptsarov is the oldest technical school on the Balkan Peninsula. Over the years, it has asserted itself as the most prestigious center for training of maritime specialists. The Maritime School began its development in the city of Ruse on January 9, 1881, as its founder was Lieutenant CommanderAlexanderKonkevich. In 1893 the first “Temporary course in Naval Sciences” was organized, which marks the beginning of the historical development of the educational structures related to the training of navigational specialists. It was not until 1990 that the school was moved to Varna by Lieutenant TodorSolarov and renamed “Engineering School to the Fleet”.

In 1954 the school was established in its present facility on “VasilDrumev” Str. In 1956 it received the status of a higher engineering maritime school and was renamed N. Y. Vaptsarov People’s Higher Naval School, and in 1960 it was entered in the registers of the International

Maritime Organization (IMO) to the UN, which recognized the diplomas of its alumni before all ship owners in the world.

After Bulgaria joined the EU in 2007, all maritime majors were recognized worldwide by the International Association of Maritime Universities (IAMU) and the World Maritime University (WMU).
