As with every other Bulgarian town or city Ruse has its population of stray dogs. Although stray they seem to be well fed and looked after and are certainly not a problem.

I noticed this pack outside one of the mausoleums in the Vazrozhdenski park, where the Pantheon is. It was almost as if this was their temple but thinking about it I suppose the reason for them congregating here is that this is where someone feeds them.
