Too crowded for my taste, however a very nice place to wander. Low season may be a better choise if you want to have the time and the atmosphere to enjoy the place entirely.

If you stay in Albena, visit Botanical gardens. You will see many interesting plants, royal palace and buy good Bulgarian vine which will be brought for your bus.

I really loved the gardens, they are spectacular. I think they should provided us a map at the entrance (which was not really cheap), so we can identify every corner of that huge and beautiful place!
