Hello!

I have questions concerning the Border-bridge between Romania an Bulgaria, exactly between Giurgiu and Ruse.

If i drive in one direction i have to pay the bridge taxes just once, or?
Is it right that i have to pay in each direction other taxes?
How much is to pay?


My other question is? In what situation is the reparing of the Bridge Ruse - Giurgiu?
Are both driving lines, that means in both directions open?
If not, how long will the reparing take on?

Thanks for the informations!

You pay the bridge toll in the country you're leaving, while you show your ID in the country of entry.
On the Romanian side it's 6 EUR, while in Bulgaria it's 2 EUR. For both countries you need to buy a vignette for the national road networks.

I'm not sure about the current situation with the repairs.

i find it very crazy that Romania takes 6 EUR for the same bridge und Bulgaria 2 EUR.
i thought Bulgaria taxes 3 EUR?

Are these actual taxes of 2016?
I couldnt find them in the internet. Because of that i asked here.

At the Romanian side the tax is not 6 but 3 EUR, at the Bulgarian is 2 EUR. Beware also that there are repairing works on the Romanian side of the bridge. You may have to wait to pass through.

Does the same (except the amount of money) goes for Calfat - Vidin?

No, at Vidin is the same amount on both sides since that bridges in under one administration (mainly bulgarian, i don't remember the ownership procentage).

As far as I've heard the works are pretty much done on Giurgiu, but qeues do happen, mainly during summer week-ends.

That here seems like an official Romanian site:
https://www.untrr.ro/road-transport-...dge-tolls.html

Am i right?
Concerning that, it costs from the Romanian site 6 EUR.

Is there an official Bulgarian site also for the costs when you enter the bridge over the Bulgarian site?


But no mather from which site you enter, you have to pay the Bridge toll just once and not twice for each country or?

I confirm it, from this year the tax is 3 euro on Romanian side, and 2 euro or 4 Lv on Bulgarian side. And you pay only at country which you leave.

Pay only once!

If you go to Bulgaria you will pay in Giurgiu (Romania) 3 Euro or 13 lei.
If you go to Romania you will pay in Ruse (Bulgaria) 2 euro or 4 lv.

This info is from last weekend travel.

Thank you for this information, @Macio89 !
It is vers helpful!

Great to hear, that both countries had reduced the Toll/Taxes for the bridge!


Can anybody remember how much it was 1-2 years ago?
I think much more or?
Interesting that they have reduced but i am happy.

We will start our travel on Friday.
I am curious in which situation the bridge and asphalt will then be.

Its a lot better than it was a few months ago!

We did it by bus 2 days ago and it took about 10 mins to cross from Romania to Bulgaria (still a bit of work going on in the Bulgarian side)

.
Bulgaria tax 2 euro or 4 lv was from 2008 or something like this
Romania tax was 6 euro a it change this year to 3 euro.


Situation on bridge is good. All border cross (Giurgiu-Ruse) take max 1 hour (with all pass control, bridge tax and bulgarian vignette - don't buy it in white house near behind cross, i always buy this vignete in center Ruse on petrol OMV)

The problem is not the bridge itself,but the ques on either side of the bridge due to passport control!

e.g Sometimes they take ages and form a large bottleneck,sometimes they are quick and traffic travels quick!

A new bridge(2x2) is definetly needed, due to increase in volume of traffic over the past 5 years!

Any hope of medium-term progress on the Black Sea motorway?

While the road between Varna and Obzor is just about acceptable, it is is an absolute disaster between Obzor and Sunny Beach, and is getting less bearable every year as traffic levels increase.
