Balchik – not the best option in terms of tourism. In the city there is nothing except a fantastic Botanical Garden, 3 small museums and a couple of unremarkable churches.
Also, you will hardly be able to visit other resorts, rich in attractions – Balchik is located in the north of the country and even to Varna, the nearest interesting city, a trip will take 40 minutes. And from Varna to Nessebar, for example, – even more than 2 hours.
That is why the bus schedule from Balchik and back, offered by us, is rather small – the only interesting, in our opinion, resort, which can be reached directly – Varna.

Where are a bus station and bus stops in Balchik – map and description?
In Balchik there is bus station, but it does not look good. Even the sign has fallen off, and the building looks abandoned. In fact it is so – to view a schedule and to purchase tickets from Balchik is possible under a small canopy 50 meters from the bus station. To find this place is not difficult: if to turn your back to the bus station, leaving the sea on the left side, you will see its back wall. To make it clearer, we have added a photo.
If you are planning simply visit the Botanical Garden, we advise to ask the driver to stop the bus on the turn (we have noted this place on a map). Then simply go straight through a rather large park. For definitely not get lost, take a navigator with you (we installed it into an ordinary smartphone).
To return, you can catch a bus directly at the gas station, next to which you left the bus, when you arrived. But we still advise you to visit the city to make your own opinion about it.
Why to visit Balchik and how to get there?
As we have mentioned, in Balchik is not much to what to watch in addition to the Botanical Garden and the Palace of Romanian Queen Maria. The palace also did not impress us – tourists are only allowed on the first two floors, inside there is nothing special. Outside it looks nice, but there is also nothing extraordinary.
But do not think that you can spend an hour here and go to watch Varna. For visiting the Botanical Garden we advise to allocate at least 3 hours of time – here it is very beautiful and interesting.
To where can you get from Balchik?
One of the interesting cities, which can be reached from Balchik – is Varna. The ticket will cost you 5 levs. And from Varna you can go to almost any corner of Bulgaria and even to neighboring countries, such as Romania, Turkey or Greece.
