Albena is a beautiful resort city situated 32 km north of Varna and just 12 km south-west of Balchik. It can be found on a long stretch of sand in the northern part of Varna Bay. The wonderful destination, which now features many Albena Bulgaria holiday rentals, was built at the start of 1968, which makes it one of the youngest cities along the Bulgarian coast. It sits at the base of a relatively high hill and the forest of Baltata, part of which is declared a protected. The feeling of being secluded from civilization because of these boundaries gives the vacation rentals in Bulgaria a particular charm.
