The gardens are spectacular. It's like a story that's being unrevealed beneath your eyes. It surprising and gets you in a relaxing nice mood. The castel is impressive by it's simplicity and it's location in direct relation and dialogue with the gardens.

Very good looking gardens, the castel is very interesting, we tried the restaurant and the food was not very good. The tickets are kind of expensive ( it gave us a feeling od being robbed - they have 2 tickets for same place - you have to pay a ticket for the gardens and a ticket for the palace)

The palace and the gardens are beautiful for spending an afternoon in Balchik. Great view of the sea, and make sure you see the little chapel and look up the history of Queen Mary.
