Lipnik Forest Park is a huge natural park hosting urban areas, playgrounds, and restaurants. It is situated within 10 kilometers away, right next to a lake, and is ideal for having walks, relaxing in the open, and throwing a barbeque party. It is the largest forest park in Bulgaria consisting of smaller forest areas, an artificial lake, and walking alleys. It is probably the calmest spot near Ruse and many families spend the weekend there.
If you prefer, you can ride a bike or get on a water wheel. Along the main alleys, there is a pavilion for taking a rest. The area is silent and clean with serene views over the lake. Good for both short walks and hiking, the forest tracks are leafy and green. It is the best place to reunite with nature.
Felling hungry? There are several cozy restaurants with outdoor gardens serving traditional grill and Bulgarian dishes accompanied by local beer, Bulgarian wine, and soft drinks.
