Ruse is situated in the central part of North Bulgaria with a population of 184 000 people.
In the Ruse District the necessary opportunities for a sustainable development of the tourist branch are given. The
potential for the establishment of a specialized tourist product, which will offer alternative forms of tourism like
cultural (exploration/knowledge), rural and ecological tourism, is determined by the very good geographical and
transport location, the rich culture-historical heritage and the beautiful natural resources, concentrated on a
comparative small territory.
The hotel and restaurant base in the town of Ruse is very well developed. There a few nice hotels in the town: “Danube
Plaza”, “Riga”, “Splendid”, “Bistra & Galina”, “Kristal”, “Lilija” and etc., and also a number of restaurants, cafes
and clubs, which are satisfying the excellent taste of the visitors.
A Regional plan for regional development is worked out at the Ruse Regional administration. According to this in the
part “Tourism” various projects for the development of tourism are foreseen, one of them is the Project as per the
PHARE Program for “Development of the Bulgarian cultural tourism”, with the aim for restoration, reconstruction,
modernization and development of the tourist potential of the culture-historical heritage (objects) and the
surrounding tourist and transportation infrastructure in the town of Ruse and its neighborhood; and also the Project
for the “Danube cultural tourism” as per the PHARE Program for the elaboration of culture-tourism routes in the whole
