Vrana Palace (Bulgarian: Дворец "Врана", Dvorets "Vrana"; formerly Враня; Vranya) is a former royal palace, on the outskirts of Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. It is today the official residence of former royal family of Bulgaria. While the Royal Palace in the centre of Sofia (today the National Art Gallery and National Ethnographic Museum) served representative purposes and the Euxinograd Palace near Varna was a summer residence, Vrana was the palace where the royal family of Bulgaria spent most of their time. Vrana Palace is situated at an elevation of 571 m.
It includes the site of Chardakli farm, where there was a bridge which featured in the liberation of Sofia.

It was very nice and beautiful. A piece of Bulgarian history and nature. If you visit, don't miss the free guided tour - the guys are very good with a lot of knowledge for the gardens and the history of the palace.

A great place for a walk just outside Sofia where historical memory lingers. It is worth going there just to breathe some fresh air or get inspired for some creative work. Beautiful tree species, fairytale sceneries. The royal residence certainly needs a restoration, though, to make that place completely wonderful.

The park is nice, but you can't walk on the grass. And there are only few trees with label and you walk and wonder what are type are the rest of them. The palace is closed for visitors. The parking is only for few cars and the public transport is almost missing. But my biggest disappointment was the entry fee. It is stupid for what you getting.

It is truly beautiful, but it is open only in weekends and works until 5 p.m. But it is full of great trees and also it is a place of nice architecture. Great for lazy Sunday afternoon :)

Great garden and palace. Only one restroom (poor quality one)
