Create an itinerary including Ravadinovo Castle
For a glimpse of what ancient castles must have looked like when they were new, visit Ravadinovo Castle. The castle is an extravagant combination of various architectural and decorative styles--though it is not historically authentic. Green ivy climbs the building's exterior and its tall steeples. Stroll outside alongside fountains, garden statues, and tiny bridges. Listen to the sounds of parrots talking, and watch peacocks displaying their plumage or swans floating on the lake. The castle features an art gallery, wine cellar, and several large halls. Make Ravadinovo Castle part of your personalized Sozopol itinerary using our Sozopol vacation planner.

  • I loved it! I felt like a princess in a fairy tail castle. After we finished the tour, we started one more time. It is perfect for couples and for families with children also.

  • This is a fairytale castle and the only one of its kind in Bulgaria. There is so much detail everywhere we looked and all is well maintained. We liked the lake with the black swans, the wine tasting.....  more

  • The garden is so beautiful! We've made so many good photos! Tickets are cheaper if you buy them online. Be ready that if you want to go elsewhere inside the garden it is also not free and can be paid by cash only. Better to get here earlier if you want to get some beautiful photos without people
  • Stunning castle with beautiful gardens and architectural designs to it. It does not cost much to enter, however one does need to pay for many other things inside. Unfortunately there's no real restaurant to sit and enjoy a quick lunch, although there is a small shop that offers small pizza. If there is one thing I can recommed, a restaurant would be a great addition. Taking in the beauty and getting some fairytale pictures with family and friends however is easy in the magical place.
  • A beautiful experience. Even if you only pay the entrance fee and skip all the extras, it’s worth it. Unfortunately, it’s not a winery as advertised, but they do have a tasting available. There’s also a terrarium, horseback riding, retro photos all for an extra fee. They have a cafe where you can grab pizza, sandwiches, ice cream or coffee. The castle itself is empty, it’s not finished. However, the outside grounds make for some great photo ops.
  • It is not finished once again. I first visited this place 10 years ago and albeit the progress is big, the actual castle is still under construction and you cant enter in it. One more thing - this place is a money-taking machine. Once you pay the heafty entry price you have to pay for most of the attractions nonetheless, including the toilet. Yes, they have put in a lot of work, but still...
  • Amazing, magical, different... in positive way... No word can't describe beauty of the place... I really injoyed in every inch and I recommend to everybody to taste the mystical place of Makers Imagination.
