You can walk by the Danube in Ruse. The views from the city are not that impressive. At night it is very dark and no lights. Also, there are no established restaurants along the way creating a flow of people, so its quite empty.

We travelled as close to the Danube as possible, from Ruse to Svishtov, where we crossed on the TIR ferry before driving through Romania to cross the Danube back into Bulgaria on Freedom Bridge. Wide, fast flowing, big barges, cruise ships. Fascinating.

The Danube at Ruse is a working port. It is very wide. It has a dirty look to it as I guess there is so much river traffic it is getting polluted.

We’ve sailed along the Danube and it is an incredible river giving life to many communities, lots of life to see as you sail or walk/cycle along.

Our part of the river in area of Ruse is well maintained. Unfortunately the climate is so hot in the summer and so cold in the winter. Visit it in either in the spring or in the autumn.

A wonderful place for walking, sports and relaxation. You will enjoy sunrise and sunset. Quiet and peaceful place. There is a nice fish restaurant located on one of the pontoons. Here many cruise ships are accustomed. There are pretty gardens with lots of flowers.

Search in booking Bb apartments. The location is perfect - near to the river and city centre. There are few museums and good place to eat. You can get a boat trip from ruse to other Danube cities
