Today we caught a bus to the nearby town of Balchik to see a palace built from 1926 to 1937 for Queen Marie of Romania. At that time, this part of Bulgaria was controlled by Romania and the palace was intended to be the Queen's summer retreat. The palace grounds include a number of villas and botanical gardens.
