Danube River, Ruse

(3.4/5 based on 95 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Is expected because it was the first Danube town of thaw water flows then in murky brown, was a disappointment. The addition was lower, so there is more thought, but far from the Volga, Dnieper River than in. There was surprise, as when you saw the kanmon Strait but rather on the contrary, such a Bank of Romania's lurking,.

  • From the Centre of Ruse on the Danube River, so you stand there is a promenade to walk with much unfortunately old benches, however 2017/2018 the entire boulevard. You can the ships sail by beautiful and there are passenger ships docked with tourists who visit the city.
