Ruse Day Trip

At 8:30 am on the day of your tour, we'll pick you up from your hotel in Bucharest and set off on the journey south. After an hour and a half drive, we'll reach the city of Ruse, located on the banks of the Danube River just across the border in Bulgaria.

Often nicknamed Little Vienna, Ruse is known for its elegant 19th century architecture. We'll embark on a guided tour of the city's historic centre and visit its most emblematic places of interest, like the Opera House, the library and the Monument of Liberty.

Our next stop will be at the Regional Historical Museum of Ruse, where you're sure to be captivated by the impressive artillery collection amongst other fascinating exhibitions, before continuing onwards to admire the Church of the Holy Trinity.

We'll then take a well-earned break, and you'll have an hour and a half of free time for lunch. Don't miss out on trying the local cuisine at one of the restaurants in the area!

With renewed energy, we'll next visit the ancient fortress that remains from the Roman city of Sexaginta Prista, as Ruse was historically known. Wandering amongst the ancient ruins, we'll find the old city wall and the barracks.

For the finishing touch on our tour of Ruse, we'll head to the banks of the Danube River to enjoy a peaceful stroll alongside the water. At the end of the day, we'll make the return journey to Bucharest, where you'll be dropped off at your hotel at 5:30 pm.
