Since 2014 we organize a 680 km cycling adventure event – along the Danube River to the Black Sea in Bulgaria. Our Dunav Ultra Cycling Challenge is one of the most attractive events for amateur cyclists on the Balkans. The event’s main goal is successfully to cover the Dunav Ultra Cycle Route on a bicycle – individually or in a team.
Our cause is to popularize the Danube region in Bulgaria via the Dunav Ultra cycling itinerary. Although the Danube subsequently passes 10 countries it is only at the Balkans that the river pristine nature shines through. On account of its numerous cultural, historical and natural attractions, the region and the bicycle route acts as a magnet for bike travelers all over the world.
“VIDIN: The Baba Vida Fortress” is the name of the latest video trailer supporting this year’s edition of the Dunav Ultra Cycle Adventure. The video is a production of the Dunav Ultra team and presents one of the most impressive cultural and historical sites on the Balkans and a symbol of the city of Vidin – the Baba Vida Fortress.
The Danube town of Belene is а small Bulgarian city but has great and long history. In ancient times, the Romans built a military camp and a road station here called Dimum. Subsequently, the station grew to a strong military fortress and customs extending to several hectares. The thickness of the wall reaches the amazing 2.5 meters.
The “Kozloduy” video clip was shot during the last edition of the Dunav Ultra Cycling Adventure. The video includes footage of the great monument built in meters from the Danube coast (near Kozloduy) in honor of the work of the Bulgarian poet and national hero Hristo Botev.
The monument of Tsar Ivan Sratsimir in Vidin is the work of the sculptor Nikolay Haytov, who created the sculpture of Tsar Samuil in Sofia. The latter forms a controversy over Samuel’s bright, blood-red eyes. Interestingly, the statue of Ivan Sratsimir (ruler of the Vidin kingdom 1356-1396) also has luminous elements.
With more than 3000 views, the video trailer “Silistra” (Watch HERE) became the most popular promotional video dedicated to this year’s Dunav Ultra: Via Pontica ’19 event
