Walking around 2000 years old city


The tour takes the walkers around the very center of the biggest Bulgarian port along the Danube, a 2000 years old settlement established yet by the Romans.
It unfolds heritage from various historical periods including the communist past and nowadays before the visitor's eyes and then, in the end, suggests a little bit of a free time.
You will enjoy baroque buildings, Danube panoramas, small charming old streets, a point where Catholicism meets Orthodoxy, passing by monuments and museums, the modern central part of the city - all these knitted in short pleasant relaxing walk.
Also, there are few places you can optionally enter and enjoy, including meeting with local people - museums, churches, remaining of a Roman fort in the open. . .
And last, but not least, all suggested is integrated into a flexible walking tour so that one can easily skip one or add another site.
