The palace and gardens are nice. The problem is that there is not good marked with signs and you cannot find it so easy. There is a parking named "palace parking" or something like this but it is quite far from the palace's placement and it is possible that you go in the wrong direction to search for the palace... because it can't be easily seen from all the seashore.
The ticket for palace+gardens is 10 bgn/adult.

A place where you can enjoy decent greatness of one of the most beloved and beautiful queens of the 20th Century - Queen Marie Of Romania. http://www.geh.org/link/sn/queen-marie.html

The Botanical Garden and the Queen's Marry Palace is a great relaxing place from Balcic (probably the only touristic place from this little nice town). I would recommend to spend a half of day to visit and walk inside, between the flowers and the trees. This year the ticket costs 5 Leva/ adult (2.5 Euro), so is also cheap.
Nice wine shop inside where you can also taste the wines.
Highly recommended if you are in this area, don't miss a relaxing afternoon between nature and the sea.

Get away from the beach but not the crowds to take in the gardens. They are lovely and there are different plots with different themes including of course the "second biggest collection of cacti in Europe". There was wine tasting thrown in too, though a little expensive to purchase. The water features were welcome and there were plenty of shady spots to escape the direct sunlight. Fans of flowers will not be disappointed.

It is very popular considering the waves of tourists one sees here. But it is very beautiful and when the crowds ease, you can feel the sense of quietness and tranquility that Queen Mary of Romania found here 80 years or so ago. It is chic and not so large and there are a lot of beautiful flowers which are well groomed all the time by many caretakers. The labyrinth of water is also very impressive. But the corner of the Black Sea is the most impressive. A very good recommendation for a cloudy day or any day.
