beautiful houseRousse is situated in the northern part of the country, on the southern bank of the river Danube. It is the fifth largest city in Bulgaria, with a population of 178 000, as well as a major industrial and manufacturing centre and the most significant Bulgarian river port, serving an important part of the international trade of the country. Rousse is also an important crossing point between Bulgaria and neighbouring Romania, with the capital Bucharest only an hour’ drive by car from the border. 

The first insurance company, Bulgarian bank and weather service were opened here. The first Bulgarian newspaper was published in Rousse, too.

Today the city is an administrative, transport and tourism centre. The excellent geographical location, the cultural-historical heritage and the beautiful natural resources provide good potential for diverse forms of tourism, including cultural, rural and ecological tourism. Such places as the fortress of Levetabya, the fountains, RusseHistorical Museum, the museum-house of Baba Tonka and Zahary Stoyanov, the Art Gallery, and the "St. Trinity" church will be interesting for tourists to visit.

Rousse is also known as “The Little Vienna”, because of its ancient architecture which dates back to the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. Most of the buildings in Rousse are in European style and their architectural appearance still impresses the visitors. Some of the most attractive buildings are the Economic Technical School, the building of the coffee house "Teteven", the Music School, the Ancient Theatre, hotel "Sevastopol".
