Will the pier break down before Baba Vida?
Water and time do not forgive, ruin, and degrade. The quay in front of the Medieval Castle, Baba Vida, is in danger of collapsing. The wall is part of the Kaleto Vidin fortress system. It includes all the city stone gates, the other walls, incl. and Baba Vida.
The fortress walls surround a whole circle of the then town of Vidin with a diameter of 1800 meters along the river. In the Danube part, the fortification was composed of two parallel stone walls, and on the shore there is a bastion outline of seven beams. They are joined together and the coastal wall through eight bastions. An external stronghold ditch, about 18 feet wide and 6 meters deep, was filled with water from the Danube. First, the wall was erected from the land, and then those on the river that were double and with a distance of 8 m between them. The outer wall, besides a protective function, kept the city from flooding. The fortress walls follow the river bank and are broken, with small stone towers for watchkeepers preserved in places.
For several months, the level of the Danube has fallen. According to the hydrological newsletter of the Executive Agency "Study and Maintenance of the Danube River", the river level at Vidin today is 29 cm - (kilometer 790). The water is tens of meters in. It is good time for the ruined part of the fortress wall to be repaired.
