This is the place to go in Ruse. With its restaurants, icecream places, bars, and beautiful buildings. I went on a Sunday at lunchtime and the atmosphere was great. There were plenty of people around but it wasn't crowded.

Ruse is a small town on the Bulgarian - Romanian boarders, it is good stop for road trip from Sofia to Bucharest, the town is quite and not well-known to foreign tourists. We enjoyed the day we stayed it was enough for us.
