We walked down the approach to the entrance and came to the paying booth where the sign (see Photo) says if you want to see only the gardens you only need one ticket. As we only wanted the gardens we bought... More

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.

Visiting the Castle from Balchik was beautiful. I saw it in 2011 for the first time and since then I am back every summer. A lot of history in a beautiful place. The people are polite and you have good parking all over the city. The Castle is amazing! A piece of art. The gardens and the waterfall are beautiful.... More
