The favorable location of Svishtov also creates preconditions for the development of the internal and international tourism, which is assisted by the preserved monuments of various epochs (the Roman, the Medieval, the Revival Age, etc.), the islands along the Danube river at the town of Belene and the village of Vardim, the Monuments park, where the Russian armies disembarked in 1877, and many others. With view to the changing satiation in Europe, as a consequence of the integration processes, the importance of the town of Svishtov and the municipality constantly grows. Most of all, the town and the port are not of “peripheral”, but of developing importance, in relation to the constructing transport corridors. The river Danube is determined by the European Union as Trans-European Transport Corridor No 7.
