"Everything that I experienced later had already happened in Ruschuk," writes in The Tongue Set Free, the memoir of the Nobelist Elias Canetti, who was born in Ruse in 1905. The contemporary visitor of this beautiful city on the Danube can easily sense the feel that this place has a secret life and has accumulated experience and wisdom and has been passing them on through the generations.
