Budapest to the Black Sea

The banks of the Danube, lined with castles and fortresses, formed the boundary between great empires, and its waters served as a vital commercial highway between nations. Our voyage takes us through Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Romania to explore some of the ancient settlements and imperial cities which have been built along this great river.

The lower course of the Danube flows through the dramatic, narrow gorge of the Iron Gates to the Black Sea. Just before reaching the sea it forms the second largest and best preserved of Europe's deltas with 2,200 square miles of rivers, canals, marshes, tree-fringed lakes and reed islands. The Danube Delta is a wildlife enthusiast's paradise as the maze of canals bordered by thatch, willows and oaks offers the perfect breeding ground for the 300 species of birds which make the delta their home.
