Danube between Bulgaria and Romania

stage danube between bulgaria and romania - eurovelo6

 

 

Descriptiption of the step

The countryside is not spectacular, but the warmth of the people allows the visitor to enjoy a different facet of the diverse continent that is Europe...


Baba Vida Castle, built in the 9th and 10th centuries on the ruins of a Roman fortress, is Vidin’s most important historical site and the best-preserved Mediaeval castle in Bulgaria. The castle houses a museum and a theatre that uses its unique backdrop to present plays with historical themes.

The route through Romania stays on the rich silt plains formed over the centuries by the river. Here, we find an agricultural landscape teetering between traditional family-run smallholdings and large modern farms. The countryside is not spectacular, but the warmth of the people allows the visitor to enjoy a different facet of the diverse continent that is Europe.

The route along the right bank is hillier and more varied.
