Vidin is among the big Bulgarian towns on the bank of the Danube River. Apart from being a district centre, the town attracts quite a few tourists from Bulgaria and the neighboring countries. There is a ferryboat complex just outside the town that connects Bulgaria and Romania, and facilitates the economic and tourist development of the region. Despite its administrative status, Vidin does not offer many accommodations. The guests may choose mostly from small, cozy, 3-star hotels situated in the centre or near transportation spots like the central bus and train station. Rooms are comfortably furnished and have a cable/satellite TV, telephone, and very often extras such as air conditioner and Internet access. The plans for the future growth of Vidin and its development as a cultural and historical centre suggest the appearance of new hotels in different parts of the town. What brings tourists in Vidin is the medieval fortress Baba Vida on the river bank, which is among the 100 Tourist Sites of Bulgaria, as well as the town fortress and the numerous museums. You should not miss the former Ottoman town hall and the Krastata Kazarma. You will also find an enchanting deserted Synagogue. A walk in the riverside garden is something special as Vidin is famous for its parks and recreation centers. Several kilometers away from Vidin you can find villages like Bozhuritsa and Orlyaka which welcome tourists that seek tranquility and beautiful nature. As a district centre, Vidin is the biggest town in the region of the Belogradchik Rocks – one of the many world wonders of nature and acknowledged by the European Commission as a European Destination of Excellence. Tourists can combine a visit to one of the phenomenons in Bulgaria with a stay in one of the ancient and historically important Bulgarian towns.
