Standing in the middle of a farm field a few kilometers outside of Sozopol, the Ravadinovo Castle might be something out of a Disney fairy tale. Mystical and exotic, the castle made of stone covers about 30,000 square meters, including the grounds. All around the castle grounds, you will find flower gardens and landscaped lawns, as well as a variety of statues, small bridges, fountains and ponds. The castle is best visited in the summer when the castle walls are overgrown with ivy and the gardens are in full bloom. Talkative parrots, colorful peacocks and elegant swans are also prevalent throughout the grounds. Inside the castle you will find an art gallery, wine cellar and several large halls for events.
The castle is located about five kilometers south of Sozopol, just before you reach the village of Ravadinovo. It is hard to miss with its tall steeples and towers. To get there, take a taxi or catch a free shuttle from Sozopol or consider joining a day tour to the castle from nearby Nessebar, Burgas or Sunny Beach.
