Ruse

Trip Planner Europe  /  Bulgaria  /  Ruse Province  /  Ruse
Ruse is the fifth largest city in Bulgaria. Ruse is in the northeastern part of the country, on the right bank of the Danube, opposite the Romanian city of Giurgiu, approximately 75km south of Bucharest, Romania's capital, 200km from the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast and 300km from the capital Sofia. It is the most significant Bulgarian river port, serving an important part of the international trade of the country.Ruse is known for its 19th- and 20th-century Neo-Baroque and Neo-Rococo architecture, which attracts many tourists. It is often called the Little Vienna. The Ruse-Giurgiu Friendship Bridge, until 14 June 2013 the only one in the shared Bulgarian-Romanian section of the Danube, crosses the river here.Ruse is the birthplace of the Nobel laureate in Literature Elias Canetti and the world-famous writer Michael Arlen.GeographyRuse is on the right bank of the Danube, which is the high bank, having two underwater terraces and three river terraces at 15to(-), 30to(-), and 54to(-). The average altitude is 45.5m AMSL. The urban area is an approximately 11-km ellipse running along the river. The city extends from the land-connected Matey (Матей) island and the mouth of Rusenski Lom on the west to Srabcheto (Сръбчето) hill on the east. During the 20th century, the west end of the city was significantly modified by moving the mouth of Rusenski Lom to the west, as well as by moving the bank itself with its fairway considerably to the north. Sarabair (саръбаир) hill is to the south of the city and is 159m high. The Rousse TV Tower is built there on the remains of Leventtabia, a former Turkish fortification.
Ruse is in Ruse Province. Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Bulgaria using our trip planner.
