Novae served as a base of operations for Roman campaigns against Barbarian tribes including Trajan's Dacian Wars, and the last time during Maurice's Balkan campaigns. The legion was also responsible for bridge construction over the Danube.

   One of the most beautiful places around the town of Svishtov is the unique river valley (1 to 2 km (1 to 1 mi) away from the town) which hosts the monastery of Svishtov; the region called Pametnitsite (The Monuments) on the banks of the Danube and the park around the old fortress in the centre the town.

He stands out among the Renaissance figures for his excellent human and civic virtues: modesty, honesty, vision, and pragmatism, broad interests and culture, diligence, wisdom and strong will, patriotism, noble morality and humanity.

   Dimitar Tsenov had a brilliant and successful business career as an entrepreneur, merchant and stockowner and contributed greatly to laying the economic foundations of the newly-liberated Bulgaria. Being a respected authority throughout Europe, Tsenov enjoyed business relations with the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Germany, France, and the USA, and received national and foreign (Austrian and German) governmental awards for his public merits.

On September 1st, 1912 Tsenov bequeathed his fortune to the citizens of Svishtov, leaving all his assets, securities, and estates as an endowment. A part of his will reads: “As I place my modest contribution upon the altar of the Bulgarian people, I conclude my will with the wish that the Bulgarian people should constantly pursue the path of cultural growth to achieve their ideals”.

   The city of Giza is the capital of the Giza Governorate, and is located near the northeast border of this governorate in coordinates. It is located right on the banks of the River Nile.
