What could be a more perfect choice for your next holiday than a river cruise on the beautiful Blue Danube? Springing up in the town of Donaueschingen in Germany’s Black Forest, this great waterway flows southeast for 1,785 miles before emptying itself into the Black Sea at Sulina in eastern Romania. It also flows through four national capital cities - Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest and Belgrade - more than any other river in the world. Gliding peacefully between its famous and endlessly enchanting river banks, you’ll experience for yourself the calm delights that inspired “the beautiful blue Danube” of Johann Strauss’s immortal waltz and lullaby. Music is everywhere on the shores of the river Danube – from the wild genius of Mozart in Salzburg, to Beethoven, Brahms, and an entire family of Strausses in classical Vienna. The history made along this river is unparalleled to any other in Europe, so why not enjoy a cruise along it and make amazing memories of your own?
