When you’ve had a few days on the beach and you fancy a change of scene then a day out at the Castle of Ravadinovo, the castle ‘In love with the wind’, certainly fits the bill!
Located in the town of Ravadinovo, this castle is not what you would expect. It is the brainchild of a Bulgaria architect and its construction was started not in the first millennia, but 1996! It is a true fairy tale castle, similar to one you would see in a Disney film, but nevertheless it is a very impressive building. Built from stone carved from the nearby mountains, the walls are covered by dense Ivy giving the castle a feeling that is was indeed built many hundreds of years ago. Beautiful brass ornaments are also placed on the walls, reminiscent of Knightly times when jousting was the sport of the day.
The castle is set in a wonderful park with exquisite gardens, water fountains plus a lake with resident black and white swans. There are two very impressive features, a replica of Rome’s Trevi fountain and Istanbul’s Hadrian’s Arch which don’t look out of place in this austere setting. Other attractions include a winery, art gallery, chapel, stables and a small zoo!
There is plenty to see and do at the Castle of Ravadinovo and a day spent there is certainly a day well spent. The Castle is open seven days a week from 8am to 5pm, 2023 admission prices are 12 euros for adults, 6 euros for children ages 7-11 and 7 euros for children age 12-17. We hope you have a great day!
