How are you supposed to buy a ticket for the autobus to 0dessa from Varna?
(When I arrived on a Wednesday afternoon, I found 3 ticket agents advertising service to 0dessa, but all were shut @14:00 - when do shops open in Bulgaria?)
It's not about when sops open in Bulgaria. Actually most of the shops work even on Sunday. Some of the agencies close after the bus has left so they probably will be open around 9-10 on the next day.
Here are the websides of the companies that do that service to Odessa so you can call and ask them:
servistur-bg.com/%D0A%D0E%D0... - Bulgarian company, buses on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday and
http://albaservis.narod.ru/ - Ukrainian comapny, phone number in Odessa - 0038048 7879747, phone number in Varna +359 885 632 049. They have buses on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
All buses are from central bus station Varna. Here is their website - autogaravn.com/index.php?id=...
