Summer memories are precious to me and today I am remembering the day we spent in Balchik, Bulgaria.
If it’s summer and you are in Romania or in Bulgaria at the seaside maybe you will be looking for some relaxing time doing something else other than sunbathing and swimming. If that is true, it’s not very hard to find your way to Balchik and its shady botanical garden.
The place feels very peaceful and calming with extraordinary views. You can visit the Palace of Queen Marie of Romania which was the summer residence of the romanian royalty, many residential villas, a wine cellar, a monastery, a holy spring, the garden, a chapel and many other buildings.
We spent a couple of hours discovering this wonderful place and I mostly enjoyed its dreamy gardens.
If you want to buy a nice souvenir, you should take a look in the wine shop where you can taste and find the most special wines. I recommend the sweet rose wine, we had a good time sipping it when we got back home.
Enjoy the pictures and I hope you will get to make your own memories visiting Balchik!
