A new ferry line connecting Bulgaria and Romania across the Danube River will be put into operations on Friday.
The ferry boat complex connecting Bulgaria’s town of Nikopol and Romania’s Turnu Magurele will be officially launched by the prime ministers of Bulgaria and Romania Boyko Borisov and Emil Boc.
The distance between the two ferry stations is 800 m. It will take 8 minutes to cross the Danube River for the Romanian ferry boat.
The Bulgarian Port of Nikopol is first going to use an older ferry boat to be provided by Bulgarian River Shipping, Jsc, which will be making the distance in 15 minutes. Later, a brand new ferry boat is planned to be purchased.
The Romanian ferry boat will be able to fit six trucks, and will be traveling at least twice daily.
Crossing the Danube on the Nikopol - Turnu Magurele ferry will cost EUR 2 per person one-way, EUR 12 per car, and EUR 90-100 per truck.
The investment in the construction of the Nikopol – Turnu Magurele complex is EUR 10 M.
