    There are live performances every day at about 4pm. You may enjoy listening to the Bulgarian folk music and watching Bulgarian folk dances. It is free of charge. And you do not need to be a guest at the casle. Just walk to the castle and see it from the beach.

    Wrapping Up The Palm Trees For Winter!

    Wearing Their Winter Coats!

    Summers in Bulgaria can be blisteringly hot whilst winters can be almost Arctic - the highest recorded summer temperature being 45.2 degrees centigrade (1916 in Sadavo) and the lowest -38.3 (Tran 1947). The Black Sea coast doesn't suffer these sort of extremes but is certainly warm enough in summer to allow palm trees to flourish. In the winter it does often get below freezing and so the palm trees need a bit of insulation - as the pic shows!

    Nice Boat...

    This little fishing boat, moored away from from the others with its own little slipway and winch, caught my eye. I presume it belongs to one of the local restaurants and should I ever happen to be in Balchik when its landing its catch then that's where I'll be for dinner.

    It's an attractive boat, good berth, but what I was most impressed with is...see pic #2 ;)
