This was difficult to find and the taxi driver couldn't understand where we wanted to go. The Royal apartments were closed but we still visited the art gallery and a lovely chapel. There is also a small cafe there

It is a special place. Beautiful park- in winter looks magic. This summer royal residence is very nice, excellent architecture. This place worth a visit. Unfortunately is closed to public for inside visits.

By a decision of the Supreme court the ownership over the whole property was taken away from the previous holders. However they continue claiming entrance fees and not only, they had the arrogance to almost double it since the last year. Opens only 3-4 days per week. And if you are so stupid to pay they let you only visiting the park. Will never try to get into it anymore.

This was the winter ski lodge of the Bulgarian Royal Family build over 100 years ago with a hydro electric plant to supply all its electricity. This is still working now and my partner loved it and found it really interesting. There is also some historical information in a gallery (all Cyrillic sadly) and a nice little cafe. You can walk through the grounds and sometimes go in the house although not when the royal family are in residence which they were when we went there. It was only 5 lev to go in.

We really enjoyed it. Bizarrely the royal family were deposed in 1946 but seem to have kind of carried on in an unofficial capacity, or at least doing what they always did but without the state paying for it! Perhaps our royals could learn a thing or two from that!
