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.

  • It is more more magic and magnifuque place! The castle of Ravadinovo is a bold combination of architecture and decoration of various styles and materials, but it is certainly fun to see what some of the old castles should look like when they were new. Many visitors perceive the castle of Ravadinovo as a place quite mystical and romantic, for others, it is closer to Disneyland or fairy tale, an adventure they can discover in this part of the Balkans.

  • My family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) visited this fairytale castle while we were staying in Burgas (about 30 minutes away.) Driving up to it, it doesn't seem impressive and it's in the middle of nowhe...  more »

  • 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).
