Both the gardens and the castle are very beautiful and you will feel as if you are a part of a fairytale. Capture the moment, sit at the throne and take a photo! In the castle you will find a chapel where the heart of the princess is still kept. She loved the local nature and her castle so much that she wanted to stay in the castle forever.

3. Kaliakra Cape
Kaliakra Cape is a nature reserve and it is one of 100 national tourist places. You can find here dolphins, but prepare to start taking photos, because the nature is very beautiful. Here you will also find a museum, a restaurant and a chapel.
Yailata is an archaeological reserve which lies 60km to the north of Varna. Huge rock blocks separate it from the sea. Here there are over 40 caves, but people can reach only some of them. The biggest number of caves and the remnants of the ancient fortress prove that there was a cave town here. Yailata is not one of the most impressive landmarks, but it’s beautiful and it worth visiting. It’s one of those landmarks that are not so promoted among foreign tourists.
