More really amatuer photos of Bulgaria
A view of one of the Byzantine villages around Ruse. These villages are landmarks because of the churches carved into the rock faces. They have almost completly escaped modernisation. I haven't tasted cleaner air anywhere else, or seen sights so beautiful. This is probably the best picture I have, because I forgot my camera on the first day... If you want better photos I recommend checking out Emiliya Yankova's exhibition at http://art.silvena.net/index.php?option=com_morfeoshow&lang=en&pagii=0&task=current&id=66&Itemid= I got to see her work while in Ruse and its amazing.
A view of the city from the house window. You can see the river Danube and on the other side is southern Romania.
Another view with some of the neibouring houses. When it got really cold, steam came from the chimneys. Many people don't use modern central heating, but prefer to use fireplaces or older methods of keeping the house warm.
