This text is a press release of Ruse Summer Free Tour.
The free walking tours in Rousse, known as Ruse Summer Free Tour, launch on 1 May 2021 for a sixth consecutive summer in a row. The tours are intended to both Bulgarian and foreign guests as well as the residents of Rousse, and their route passes by the most popular buildings and places in the central parts of the city.
As with the previous three seasons, this year too the tours will take place every Saturday from May to September at 6:00PM from the Statue of Liberty where professionals and enthusiasts from the tourist industry in the region will tell the stories and city legends behind the places visitors will go by during the tours.
Ruse Summer Free Tour is a volunteer initiative maintained by the Kulturtur Ruse non-governmental organization. The association is driven by an enthusiastic group of friends from Rousse who, according to their own words, “devote time and efforts to the free city walks because they love Rousse. These fellow thinkers believe that the initiative expresses the free spirit such as the city of Rousse claims to have. “It is about the realization of an event that claims something bigger than an immediate profit or material gain. The idea is to help Rousse get a step further in the development of its potential and to indirectly improve the economic reality of its residents”, says the founder of the Tour, Ms Desislava Mihaylova, on behalf of the team.
Ruse Summer Free Tour is inspired by the similar initiatives in the cities of Sofia, Plovdiv and Veliko Tarnovo where the free city walks are extremely popular and attract thousands of tourists each year.
On December 3, 2018, Ruse Summer Free Tour received The Most Original Tourist Event in Rousse for 2018 award by the Municipality of Rousse in their annual Dunavski Limes Contest.
