Danube River, Ruse

3.4
#2 of 14 in Things to do in Ruse
The largest river in the European Union, links ten countries, features picturesque ports, and hosts a plethora of cruises. Experience this dynamic river from the largest port in Ruse, Bulgaria, where neo-Baroque and neo-Rococo architecture dots riverside pathways as people jog and cycle alongside. From here you'll see some unusual monuments, such as a crumbling medieval castle on a rock above the Danube. Grab a bite at a restaurant by the river, snap photos of this site amidst an urban setting, or board one of the riverside cruise boats to learn about the region's history and ecosystems. Make Danube River part of your personalized Ruse itinerary using our Ruse trip builder.

    Danube is really large at this point, a wide border between Bulgaria and Romania. You can admire awhile crossing it by the Danube Bridge. Fantastic!  more »

    We are on the river as part of a river cruise. The Danube is always a pleasant large river, although not as clean down here.  more »
