Full description
Start your day of adventure from the Svoboda (Freedom) Square, here you will meet your friendy and professional guide. After a short meet and greet, you will head off on your journey and see what this city has to offer. 

On your tour, see the lasting effects of the 19th-century, a prosperous time for the city that helped create its nickname - "Little Vienna". Throughout the day you will get to admire the charm of imposing belle epoque architecture, a style totally unique to this part of the country. Your guide will introduce you to the main highlights of the city, starting at Svoboda Square - from here you will spread out throughout the city. 

Visit the neo-baroque Profit-Yielding Building. Built in the 19th-century by Viennese architects, it is the home of dramatic theater in Ruse. Nowadays, it also houses a few restaurants, within which, you will get to stop for a typical lunch and dine the way the locals do. During your tour you will get to marvel at dozens of buildings with European heritage. You will get to see how the city combines several architectural styles, whilst making them harmonious at the same time. You will get to stop near the Girdap - the first privately owned bank in the country, the Opera House, School of Music, Hotel Plaza Charlino, Regional Library Building and more. Follow this up with a visit to the oldest church of Ruse - Holy Trinity Church and the Ruse Historical Museum. In the Museum, Bulgaria's rich history and traditions will reveal themselves to you  during your informative visit of the premises. 

The tour will end with a relaxing walk near the majestic Danube River.
