The best way to do this is by bus (if you can find one), but those uncomfortable maxi taxis will be ok too, considering it's a relatively short trip.
The train takes far too long (about 3 hours) for such a short distance (just 85 km), so it's not a very good option.

Why would would you want to leave from Filaret station?

You can check bus/maxi taxi timetables between Bucharest and Ruse here (click on Details to see the departure stations) :

Travel Tips for Bucharest

The Roman She-Wolf (Lupoaica)

by gosiaPL

This is a replica of the famous Roman 'La Lupa', the she-wolf that nurtured Romulus and Remus, the legendary founders of Rome.
It was a gift from Italy to mark Romania's Latin origin and ancient past. Good to keep this heritage in mind when visiting all the Orthodox religion sites :-)

It stands at the beginning of Lascar Catargiu Blvd in Piata Romana.

Legend of DRACULA!

by draguza

Prince Vlad Zepes, better known as "Dracula" ruled the Romanian province of Wallachia, by the way, not Transylvania (north of Wallachia). Transylvania was actually the site of his lengthy imprisonment under a Hungarian king: ...According to the legend, this is when Dracula's wife, in order to escape Turkish capture, committed suicide by hurling herself from the upper battlements, her body falling down the precipice into the river below -. Vlad, who was definitely not the kind of man to kill himself, managed to escape the siege of his fortress by using a secret passage into the mountain. Helped by some peasants of the Arefu village, he was able to reach Transylvania where he met the new king of Hungary, Matthias Corvinus. However, instead of providing some help, Matthias arrested Dracula and imprisoned him at the Hungarian capital of Visegrad. It was not until 1475 that Vlad was again recognized as the prince of Wallachia, enjoying a very short third reign. In fact, he was assassinated toward the end of December 1476....

Oldest church in town - 1416

by josephescu

Biserica Bucur Ciobanul (the Church of Bucur the Shepherd)

The name of BUCUResti comes from a shepherd named Bucur, who decided to settle down in these places. Tradition in medieval times required a church to be built in each settlement, so among the first things he built around 1300 was a small wooden church, on this very place. In 1416, the wooden church made room for a brick one, which you can see today.
The oldest church in Bucharest is situated near Unirii square – just follow the river (Dambovita) towards the construction site of the national library (opposite to Ceausescu’s Palace) and within 300m you’ll see a tall brick wall on you right. The church in on the top of the small courtyard surrounded by the brick wall.
While there, don’t miss the monastery of Radu Voda, opposite the road

The Harp Irish Bar

by Fen about The Harp Irish Bar

Halloween at the Harp! This has got to be one of my best Halloween nights, such fun on our first night in Bucharest. This place was really cool and very friendly and everyone was chilled.
Not like back home!!! HAHA

By metro

by yumyum

When we flew into Bucharest we took the bus to Piata Victoriei where we changed to the metro.

If you plan to use it a few times, you can buy a ticket with 10 rides for 7 RON. Several people can travel on it at the same time just hand it back to the next person after you are through the turnstyle. You are not allowed to take pictures in the underground.
