After one hour of driving from Bucharest, you will cross the border to Bulgaria over the Danube river, the second largest river in Europe, and then stop at Ivanovo to visit Ivanovo Churches (UNESCO heritage since 1979). In the Valley of the Rusenski Lom River, the rock-hewn churches are famous thanks to their impressive XIII-XIVth century frescos.
