Danube is the longest river in the European Union, and the second longest river in Europe after the Volga in Russia. It begins in the Black Forest region of Germany and passes through 10 countries (Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova and Ukraine) on the way to the Black Sea. For the Danube Basin, which is much older than the Rhine, is believed that is the location for some of the oldest human cultures and this is one of the major historic waterways of Europe.
The Danube is a river with many names
It is strange, but ... in any of the countries through which the river flows is not called „Dunav“. In Germany it is Donau, in Hungarian Duna, in Slovak Dunaj, then Danubi, Dunare, Danuvijus, Duner, Danubio, Dounavis and in our most beautiful Serbian language Dunav. All these names derive from the Celtic word danu, which means „flow“.
The Danube has been an inspiration to many major international musicians and artists over the centuries. Europe's largest waterway was immortalized in the famous waltz, The Blue Danube, by the Austrian composer Johann Strauss on a river cruise. This product is extremely popular worldwide, and is particularly cultivated in Austria. Another famous waltz is Waves of the Danube, by Romanian composer John Ivanovic, who caused a sensation at the exhibition in Paris, the 1889th. At the end of XXI century Jazz musician Joe Zavinul wrote symphony called Stories from the Danube.
Many famous painters have immortalized this beauty and its beautiful landscapes and expressive figures, which like magic can only live in close contact with the river - the Danube cruise.
Danube`s length (2850 km) and ramified river basin (120 tributaries), makes it one of the major rivers of the world, second in Europe after the Volga. It flows through Serbia, with its 588 km navigable during the whole, and represents natural connection with Germany, Austria, Hungary, Croatia, Romania and Bulgaria.
River Sava is 945 km long and runs 207 km through Serbia, linking Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Republic of Serbian and Serbia.
