The Danube river marks Bulgaria's northern border with Romania. The Danube is the second longest river in Europe, flowing through ten countries.
The river has been the main factor for Ruse's growth.
The only bridge over the Danube, connecting Bulgaria and Romania is at Ruse and Giurgiu, called the Freedom Bridge. Another bridge is being built at Vidin and Kalafat.
Housed in the former building of the Prussian Mission, the museum shows how the elite of Ruse lived in the 19 and early 20 cc.
There are original pieces of furniture and ornaments there, as well as some displays showing typical objects from the 1960's and 70's.
The funniest thing was the display of a hairsaloon with one of the old 'helmets'.
The bedroom is all originally furnishes to the last detail, even night potty included.
Entrance 4 leva, 1 leva for students, children, pensioners.
The Pantheon is dedicated to the heroes of the 19th century. There are buried 453 independentists that died fighting for their freedom. The entrance fee is only 0.50Lv, and the curator is a very nice lady, who speaks english and can tell you a lot about Bulgarian history. If you go to Ruse, you can't miss it!
The tallest building in Bulgaria (opened in the early 1980s)! Since 2007 the bar has been closed but you can enjoy the view from the hill! Take binocullars with you!
The Pantheon- many bulgarian revolutionists are burried there- Luben Karavelov, Stefan Karadja, Nikola Obretenov, and othes. A sacred place for every bulgarian.
