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!

If you're staying in central Ruse, it's just a few minutes' walk to the Danube ... which is undoubtedly (in good weather) a mighty and impressive river ... but what's disappointing is the absence of terraces or vantage points where you could have a coffee and view the river ... only a couple of scruffy cafes ...

Very few Bulgarians are even familiar with the splendors of the coast here. Tutrakan, between Rousse and Silistra, is particularly unknown, because it was a no-go area during communism, however it is wonderful town with Roman roots, amazing river views, and several good museums.

The Danube is an excellent river. Narrow at its source, but here in Ruse, broad and impressive. I highly recommend it.

The Danube River is a wonderful place to travel along. You can visit beautiful cities both in Romania and Bulgaria and have a look on the ancient Greek or Roman heritage landmarks in these cities. Danube Delta is especially beautiful and unique. The best time to visit is Spring and Autumn when you can find a lot of birds and... More

You can have a great view on the river if you stay at Riga Hotel, or just take a short walk from the town center.

The Danube runs alongside the beautiful city of Rousse, although whether it is worth a visit depends upon which part you see. We stayed at the Hotel Luliaka, opposite Luliaka island where the Danube is calm and beautiful, although only a few miles to the east and it becomes a busy and somewhat dirty port, complete with floating debris.
