Beautiful and quiet place. We visit it on the 1st of January, it wasn't closed like we thought it would be. It's a large garden, lots of species of trees ( and flowers but not in the winter) with a great Seaview. I had some preconceptions about this place, l didn't think it's so beautiful. But it is. If you... More

Really loved the gardens, the greenhouse and the buldings on the castle grounds. We visited în the winter time, but the sight is amazing nonetheless.

This is one of the most beautiful and peaceful places I have visited in Bulgaria. I fell in love, especially with the gardens, which apparently are very interesting for their landscape architecture. It is a magical place with stunning views, especially in the evenings. I also loved how details from various architectural styles were incorporated there, and how there were... More

The Botanical Gardens of Balchik and the Palace (I would not call it a palace as it was more a summer residence) are one of the things that are worth seeing if you are somewhere in the northern part of the Bulgarian seaside. The gardens are not anything unique which you could not see anywhere else, but they offer a... More

Interesting place, that worths a visit. You have to see the botanic garden and also the palace (actually is not a palace, is more like a summer resort).

I honestly recommend it to anyone, I've had an awesome time there. The view was amazing and I could feel the whole history of the place just wraping around me. I am a huge nature lover and all I can say is that nature and harmony are all gathered in one place and that is Balchik.
