... of Queen Victoria and married, at 17, to the Crown Prince of Romania. At the time she visited Balchik and fell in love with it, the town was in the southern part of Romania. She was quite an artist and writer and made the town a sort of artisan hub. When she died in 1938 in Siniya in Romania, her heart was returned to the chapel in Balchik for burial.
The palace is quite small, but her apartment - well - not grand at all, but sooo pretty with lovely windows looking out across ...
... the recreation of a very wealthy noble's burial place from the late 5th millenium BC with many golden artefacts including a gold penis sheath - well, who could resist?!
We only managed one floor before 'museum overload' kicked in, but well worth £2:50 each. (If only for the sheath!)
Then back to hotel for lunch (aka Jerry's breakfast) and packing of beach stuff. Lounger, umbrella, sun, sea, sand .... So sorry ...
... a sit up and beg bike for me next. I wonder if they do them for spinning!
Fab things to note about this hotel: all the staff have been to charm school and they have lots of free L'Occitaine toiletries. A week ago I wouldn't have noticed, but, although the Bulgarian people are really nice, they don't smile much, and so far, 'free toiletries' as described on the Internet has meant a teeny bottle of shampoo and a toilet roll.

We decided to explore a bit further south and have a look at Sozopol. It's another ancient town, but not a World Heritage site like this one. Took about an hour to drive there - managed to resist the temptation to stop in Burgas this time - and arrived in one piece despite some of the dreadful driving we saw.
The old town was very pretty, with wooden cladding on the outside of ...
... I went beachcombing but didn't see much apart from purple and white mussel shells.
From the beach we wandered back to the Old Town, where we were due to catch the 17.30 bus back to Burgas. We had a little bit of time to kill until then, so we walked over to a shop with an ice cream cabinet outside the front with jars of fig jam on top. Dave almost bought a jar but then backed out. An ice cream kept me going until the bus arrived.
