Ruse and the monastery of St. Dimitar Basarabovsk




We’ll leave by coach to explore the city of Ruse and the rock monastery of St. Dimitar Basarabovski. The monastery is the only functional men’s rock monastery in Bulgaria, a site filled with history and still a true place of worship and everyday life. We’ll then head to Ruse, one of Bulgaria's most elegant cities. With its imposing Belle Époque architecture and neatly trimmed leafy squares, it’s as if a little chunk of Vienna had broken off and floated down the Danube. You’ll see the Dohodno Zdanie, the Roman Catholic St. Paul of the Cross Cathedral, and the Monument of Liberty. Enjoy some free time before returning to the ship by coach.
