The gardens were very crowded. The paths are quite steep. There isn't that much to see, there's more in good garden centre back home. Waterfalls only look spectacular when there's a lot of water. The Palace is small with limited exhibits and no crowd management.

I enjoyed very much the gardens. It is so green... You walk through vineyards with the grapes hanging over your head, and the old stone walls add to the atmosphere. The palace was less for me. The palace might be interesting for people focused on...More

Hello, from what I know the Palace and garden doesn't have a website. So an option would be to visit Balchik and get all the details on site

Not all around, just a part, mainly the upper part. For the bottom part, near the sea, you have to take the stairs.
