Vidin is one of the oldest towns along the Bulgarian Danube bank. It appeared as the Roman fortress of Bononia on the foundations of a Thracian settlement. It is located 199 km the northwest from Sofia, 102 km northwest from Montana, 52 km north from Belogradchik and 30 km south-east from the border town of Bregovo.
Built centuries ago, Baba Vida Fortress is the area's hottest tourist attraction. The building is well preserved and contains amazing architecture. Many artifacts from the medieval times can be found within the fortress. One other fortress, Kaleto Fortress, is equally impressive and not to be missed. The cultural history is reflected in the numerous archeological monuments, architectural fragments, sculptures, bronze and clay items that are kept in the museums.
As it is set on major international roads and cross-points the Bulgarian and the Romanian Governments decided to build a bridge in Vidin over the river, to connect both countries and roads. The construction already started. Soon Vidin will become one of the main points on the European road. The construction of the new bridge is financed with fund by the European Union.
It is a great time to strike a bargain deal.
