Hop over the Danube

8 hour tour

The Danube has always been an equally inspiring and challenging axis around which quite a lot of the European history unfolded. So, let us take the road South of Bucharest, heading to Giurgiu and then across the river into Ruse, a once main cultural and trading Bulgarian post which played a major role on the country’s road to independence from the Ottoman rule. And no, we are not going to ferry you across the river, as the passengers of the Orient Express used to do between 1883 and 1954, when the bridge was erected. Why travel to Ruse? Well, a few reasons here: it is not every day that you see a glamorous property that was gambled and lost (as was the Anna Palace Hotel), a young man that rather took his own life than surrender to the Ottomans (as did Angel Kanchev) or an old church with excellently preserved artwork (such as the Sveta Troitsa going back to 1623). Other than the church, no interior visit is included, as the city itself is worth walking around.
