The Danube journeys through the very heart of Europe, calling in at some of the world’s most elegant, vibrant and influential cities. Multiple capitals - including Budapest, Vienna, Bratislava and Belgrade – sit along the course of this beautiful waterway, providing Danube river cruise guests with an insight into the history of the continent.
The Danube passes through 10 different countries (more than any other river in the world), and has long been an important trade route and military vantage point. Many of Europe’s finest architectural sights are found along this river.
