Beautiful Balchik, Bulgaria - Part 5

The Palace and Beach

Balchik is located 45km North of Varna.A bright, historic place.

Here are two views of the main Palace building.In fact, the Palace is really a complex of several buildings, including a chapel.As you can see the tower looks a little bit like a minaret, and the architectural styles are a blend of East and West.

On a more personal note, the story goes that Queen Marie used the palace for liaisons with a Turkish lover.

That, of course, is history, but the Palace is an enduring tribute to her love of Balchik, and is her legacy.
