While I can't say the Bulgarian Danube will compete with the castles and forests of further upstream, this region of Bulgaria is little traveled by foreigners except for cyclists on the Danube path and the occasional boater from the Czech Republic or elsewhere, and it's a pity because it is so stunning. I particularly recommend Tutrakan, an old Roman fortress... More

Ruse is beautiful during the spring, I highly recommend it. Their park is large and full of color - green everywhere, trees in bloom, flowers. We even saw cute squirls! A stroll in the park and on the bank of the river are a must-do in Ruse.

For some reason, I was really looking forward to visiting Ruse. I was not disappointed. Make sure you go to the town square and enjoy the fountains, and all of the shops and eateries that are available. Ruse is situated where the Danube forms a natural border between Romania and Bulgaria. From the town square, the streets are wagon spokes... More

We liked the water and watching the barges but there is no effort made to interest the tourist though there is a walkway and lots of benches. The water here has passed through 5 other countries so it is dirty looking.

As one of the main water arteries of Europe Danube can provide a lot to tourists. Of course Bulgaria, being a poor country, has not developed and exploited at all all the positives of this fantastic tourist resource. In Rousse specifically, the "walking" area down along the river is in miserable situation, no lamps, no normal pavement, no places to... More

In winter - watching the ice floes slowing make their way down stream. In summer - seeing the kids diving in and swimming

I liked going down to the Danube, but I must say it looks awesome in Austria, but by this point it is very polluted which is a real shame. Scary stories about bodies washing down from the Balkan conflict though!

Just to see this river is a pleasure! It is so wide and beautiful. Crossing over on the train to Romania gives a great view!
