Nice open square with good gardens. There were lots of family and kids around even late at night in August 2022, partly because of the summer holidays. If you’re in the city, you’ll no doubt pass through here at some point so take some time to look at the Mother Bulgaria statue too.

Beautiful and huge square in the center of Ruse, the 5th biggest city in Bulgaria, dominated by the soaring and grand Monument of Freedom. It is surrounded by buildings of awesome neo-baroque and neoclassical architecture, many of which are cultural monuments, that brought Ruse the nickname of "The Little Vienna" long time ago. A couple of fountains are on the square as well as some well-trimmed, manicured small gardens. You can watch the world going by from some of the benches in the shade of the trees or you can enjoy a drink or meal in some of the restaurants and cafeterias scattered along the periphery of the square.

Ruse is an open, pretty, neatly structured and good-atmosphere-breathing city. This square is no exception. Pleasant for walking around or sitting on one of the benches. Surrounded by nice architecture.

Freedom square a must to visit when in Ruse. Very easy to find and being honoured to just stand before the statue is overwhelming experience. Walking to the shops and restaurants is just a few steps away.

The most gorgeous square, peaceful, tidy and tranquil - on a Sunday morning. It is surrounded by an impressive array of building. Worth a visit.

I was born in Ruse and love to go for a walk in the central part of the town, where you can see emblematic buildings and sculptures! The one of them is the beautiful freedom Square surrounded by nice fountains and nice arranged flowers! I do recommend this park of the city!

A lovely place in the heart of the city, the main symbol of the town. It's a must when visiting Ruse.It's green and very relaxing and in the same time full of life. All main sights are close, as well the best restaurants in town.

Ruse is nicknamed the "little Vienna" because of its architecture and history.
This city was once even more developed compared to Sofia or Plovdiv.
It is also known the "city of the first things". During the 19th century, the first printing house was discovered, the first telegraph agency, the first railway line in Bulgaria, the first brewery - basically where the civilisation came from.

Easy to reach from the river, the statues are interesting. Families gather here into the evening and it feels safe. There are sellers of ice cream, drinks and snacks and main shopping street nearby.
