The fame of Balchik is mainly due to the palace of the Romanian Queen Maria. The Palace architectural and park complex is one of the most popular and impressive tourist attractions in the city. It was built during the Romanian occupation, when the city became a resort favored by the Romanian aristocracy. The story goes that in 1924 the palace was built for the summer residence of the Romanian Queen Maria Alexandrina Victoria de Edinburgh.

Maria fell so much in love with this corner of paradise that, after her death, her heart was bequeathed to be placed in a small golden casket and buried in the Assumption Chapel in the Palace.
