The purpose built fairy tale castle is great for a couple of hours wander, with some animals to look at and lots of peacocks freely walking around the site. I think th3y have missed a few tricks that would make it a bit more interesting,...More

WE travelled with our own car and its only about 10 minutes drive from Sozopol centre. The distance is about 5 kilometres, Walking will take a slightly different route and again is about 5 kms and would take approx 1 hour
