The park is beautiful, and the views stunning. Several nice restaurants by the seaside. Although not suited for persons with mobility issues, since the paths are very steep.

I didn't really expect it would be such a beautiful place. Although Queen Mary's Palace is nor very big or impressive, the garden itself is huge and beautiful, full of various plants as well as romantic nooks and crannies.

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.

It is about 15 km far (about 20 minutes by car) from your hotel. You can look at google.maps to see the routes. In summer, it is opened daily from 8:00 till 20:00.
