In this short clip, David brings us along the Black Sea Coast to the iconic Balchik Palace. 2 kilometers south of Balchik town, this early 20th century estate was once the summer home of the Romanian Queen Marie. Situated between the countryside’s cliffs and the Black Sea coastline, the Balchik Palace is unlike most royal palaces in Europe. Instead of having one colossal building as the focal point of the area, Balchik Palace (also known as Quiet Nest Palace) is instead illustrated with sprawling gardens and scattered villas. With amazing views of the Black Sea and great areas for walking, a tour of the Balchik Palace is a must-do for anyone traveling the northeast coastline of Bulgaria.
