VIDIN – The Medieval Fortresses ”Baba Vida”

Vidin is the westernmost important Bulgarian Danube Port and is situated on one of the southernmost sections of the river. A Ferryboat complex linking Vidin with Calafat on the opposite side of the river, is located 2 km from the town. The complex is to be replaced by the Calafat-Vidin Bridge.

Vidin boasts two well-preserved Medieval Fortresses - Baba Vida and Kaleto, as well as many old Orthodox churches such as St Pantaleimon, St Petka (both 17th century), and St Greatmartyr Demetrius (19th century), a Jewish synagogue (1894), a mosque and a library of Osman Pazvantoğlu, the late 18th century Turkish ruler of northwestern Bulgaria, the cruciform barracks of 1798, and a number of old Renaissance buildings.
