The town of Rousse (population: 39 036 habitants, about 200 m above sea-level) is situated on the Loudogorie plateau (and is considered the capital of the Loudogorie), on either bank of the Beli Lom River. It is 375 km north-east of Sofia, 66 km south-east of Rousse, 49 km north-west of Shoumen, 36 km north of Turgovishte, 36 km north-east of Popovo and 108 km south-west of Silistra. A district centre.
Rousse is the successor of the Roman settlement called Abritus (its ruins are situated near the town), the latter being established at the place of a Thracian settlement with an unknown name. The medieval Bulgarian settlement called HRousse (Hrisgrad) sprang up upon the remains of the ruins of the Byzantine town already destroyed in the invasions.
In 1388 it fell under Turkish reign. Since 1573 on the town gradually grew into a craft centre. People reared silkworms. There was a trading colony from Dubrovnic dating back to 16th century.
It developed as a typical Oriental town. Bulgarians from the nearby villages gradually settled there and thus changed the ethnical pattern. In 1860 the first school opened its doors. The first Bulgarian poetess Stanka Nikolitsa Spaso-Elenina worked as a teacher in the Revival town of Rousse.
On 1st March 1879 when the foundations were laid for the Mausoleum of the Russian liberators Prince Dondoukov-Korsakov was among the guests present. At that time Frank Grunanger was the town’s architect.
For the last decades Rousse has developed as a centre of pharmaceutical industry in Bulgaria.
The St. Nikola Church dates back to the end of 19th century. The Clock Tower is a slender stone body in the shape of parallelepiped with a wooden superstructure with a clockwork in it. It is 26.15 m high; master Todor Tonchev from Tryavna built it in 1864 replacing an old tower from 18th century. The Museum of History is situated both in the town and in the Abritus
