Business: 25 February 2007, Sunday.
The Bulgarian Danube town Lom will be connected to the Romanian city Rastu via a ferry boat, the Lom Municipality announced on Sunday.
On the Romanian coast a new port is now under construction in the city of Rastu. Financing of the port comes from the PHARE program.
The project is scheduled to be finished in the next two years.
The Lom-Rastu Ferry Boat will be the most direct connection of the Balkans with North Europe. It will be a great advantage of the small town of Lom, as the ferry boat will bring economic liveliness to Lom, its Mayor Penka Penkova said.
