What to see in Giurgiu

Giurgiu, a Romanian gem on the banks of the Danube River, beckons with its historic charm and tranquil ambience. Located across from Bulgaria's Ruse, this city offers scenic riverside promenades and glimpses into Romania's cultural heritage. Giurgiu is a serene gateway to explore the picturesque landscapes of southern Romania.

Begin your exploration of Giurgiu by wandering through its historic city centre, where you'll encounter a blend of architectural styles and cultural heritage. The city's past is intertwined with a variety of influences, from Ottoman to Bulgarian, and its diverse history is reflected in its buildings and landmarks. A great starting point is the Giurgiu Clock Tower, a symbol of the city. This Ottoman-era structure offers panoramic views of Giurgiu from its top, making it an excellent spot for photos. Nearby, you'll find the Church of St. Nicholas, an impressive example of Orthodox architecture with beautiful frescoes and a serene atmosphere.

A short ferry ride across the Danube from Giurgiu will take you to the Bulgarian city of Ruse, also known as the Little Vienna of Bulgaria. Exploring Ruse offers a fascinating contrast to Giurgiu, with its own rich history, architecture and cultural attractions. One of Ruse's iconic landmarks is Freedom Square, a spacious and elegant square surrounded by neoclassical buildings. The Freedom Monument, an imposing statue in the centre of the square, pays tribute to Bulgaria's liberation from Ottoman rule. Ruse boasts a vibrant cultural scene and the Regional Historical Museum is a must-visit for history enthusiasts. Housed in an exquisite building, the museum's exhibits showcase the history of the region, from ancient times to the present.

Escape the urban hustle and bustle by venturing into the tranquil Comana Natural Park, located just a short drive from Giurgiu. This protected area is a haven for nature lovers and offers a peaceful retreat in a pristine environment. Comana Natural Park is renowned for its wetlands, lakes and diverse ecosystems, making it an ideal destination for birdwatching and wildlife enthusiasts. Over 200 bird species can be spotted here, including herons, cormorants and various waterfowl. The park features a network of well-maintained walking and cycling trails, allowing visitors to explore its natural beauty at their own pace. Along the way, you'll come across observation platforms and shelters, providing excellent opportunities to observe the park's wildlife in a peaceful setting.
