Beautiful place in Balchik with amazing views above the sea. Nice organized garden and lovely palace of the Queen Maria. Great selective drinks for degustation.

Just skip the palace (really small, more of a beach villa than an actual palace) and spend a couple hours at least wandering through the gardens.

It is definitely worth visiting both the castle and the gardens. The entire domain served as a summer house for Queen Mary of Romania. The view over the port is amazing.

Balchik Botanical Garden takes you to the other world , it has many different flowers and plants , also great beach and view of black sea. although the palace is not exactly as big as I thought , but it was cool to visit. if you stay in Albena or Golden sands , it's a must-see place for you.

The castle is nice but the garden is amazing. Really nice decorated, with all kind of trees and plants. When you walk on the garden's alleys you feel like you belong to a fairy... More

The palace is in fact a house, not very big and very simple taking in consideration that it was a Queen living in it. A walk in the garden is a real pleasure, and the botanical garden is also worth visiting
