Ravadinovo Castle, Sozopol
(4.1/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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 family vacation planner.

  • We drove near and came by chance this ' Castle '. We had no expectations and decided to buy a ticket to go to. There were mostly Bulgarians and a few Englishmen, Furthermore, almost no tourists. By the ' Garden ' to the ' Castle ', you can (easily an hour or two) walking slowly. We found it kind of fun. It was something different!

  • Went to the castle with the children. A good place to relax without any activity. Take a walk, sit in the cafeteria. For children there are creative workshops. You can have a beautiful photoshoot. Take a ride on a horse. There's a minizoo. If you want to do something active, then this is not the place. In General, I would like to have interesting programmes in the castle itself. Can be styled tournament.))))

  • It's a great attraction where old times meet modern, with nice landscape, fountains, lake and small area with animals. Highly recommended to visit if you are in the region
  • Really disappointing place. It's in the middle of a field without any road, parking etc. Extremely dirty surroundings. Too much of everything inside without any idea. Staff is not kind at all. Trying to earn money from everything inside, even toilets are paid. Worst given 5 euro since a long time. No safety there, construction works everywhere are even not surrounded by fences, metal peaces standing out of the ground can kill someone.
  • The best place to visit! Real life fairy tale castle. I love it!!
  • Awesome gardening and magical place!
  • One of the best things to see for any age near Sozopol (be careful, last bus back is at 18:40).
