The Balchik Palace is a palace in the Bulgarian Black Sea town and resort of Balchik in Southern Dobruja. The official name of the palace was the Quiet Nest Palace. It was constructed between 1926 and 1937, during the Romanian control of the region, for the needs of Queen Marie of Romania. The palace complex consists of a number of residential villas, a smoking hall, a wine cellar, a power station, a monastery, a holy spring, a chapel and many other buildings, as well as most notably a park that is today a state-run botanical garden.   – Wikipedia  Queen Marie was also a member of the  Bahá’í Faith and the palace has the iconography of multiple religions.

Interestingly, Queen Marie was a contributor to Maryhill Museum in Washington State.  For more information, click here
