Varna Municipality started the process of developing a payment scheme for parking in the city centre in 2008. In May 2012 the city introduced, as a pilot, a parking zone covering 200 parking lots in the centre of Varna. Following opposition from local residents and the central government, the 'blue zone' was put on hold and today only a few blocks in the centre of the town are subject to a paid parking scheme.
