Flowing a total distance of 1,770 miles, the Danube is regarded as the second longest river in Europe. Flowing from the Black Forest Mountains of western Germany, it can take river cruisers on a journey through some of Europe’s most fascinating towns, cities, and landmarks. It passes through nine countries including: Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania, and Ukraine. It is known as the river of Mozart symphonies and Strauss waltzes, due to the fact it is lined with castles and fortresses that date back to a period where it provided a border between empires.

Budapest, Hungary

The River Danube plays a vital role in the build-up of the Hungarian capital of Budapest. It flows right through the heart of the city and has led to the construction of seven magnificent bridges - which connect the old city of Buda, on the right bank, with more modern city of Pest, on the left bank. One of the city’s instantly recognisable highlights is the Hungarian parliament building – a spectacular structure which sits beside the Danube. Venture into Budapest, wander its many streets, and you will discover St. Matthias Church, which was originally built in Romanesque style in the 11th century, but later rebuilt in Gothic style, in the 14th century.
