At 1,770 miles, the Danube is the second longest river in Europe—only the Volga is longer. It passes through 10 Central and Eastern European Countries. This is a river of legends, serves a borderline between countries, has four capital cities on or near its banks and romantic sights of medieval castles, baroque churches and abbeys and rococo palaces. No wonder why it is the most popular European River Cruise Route—about 30% of all cruisers chose this route! Here is some great information about the 2 most common routes on the Danube.
