Balchik Botanical Garden

Local name: Ботаническа градина Балчик

The University Botanical Garden was founded in 1955. Currently, its collection includes over 4900 species of plants. Among them is the second largest collection of cacti and succulents in Europe. Here you can see, among others garden cacti, resistant to low temperatures and exotic varieties, flowering once in a hundred years.

The garden consists of three parts. The first is a landscape park, formerly serving as a palace park. In the second part, you can see the main collections - succulents, rock garden, aquatic plants, ferns and evergreen shrubs. There is a zone here designed for the blind, in which plants are described in Braille. The third part of the garden is a protected science zone.

Mainly tropical and exotic species grow in garden greenhouses. You can here, among others watch lemons the size of a handball. When visiting the garden, it is also worth paying attention to the so-called a flourishing carpet, a characteristic flower arrangement, which is the hallmark of the garden.
