The Danube river
The Danube is the second longest river after the Volga in Europe. Its length is 2850 km and it passes through 10 countries: Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania, Moldova and Ukraine. Many centuries ago, the river separated the Roman Empire from the barbarians.
The Danube is one of the oldest trade routes in Europe. The river transported fur, wood, wine and salt. Today, the river is popular among tourists who can use the services of cruise ships and enjoy the unique sights and charming corners of the route.
The Danube river formed a fairly long delta in Romania and Ukraine at the point of confluence with the Black Sea. Enjoy the cruise “Ukrainian waterways” sailing through magical Slavic hinterlands and exploring the Danube Delta, one of the most incredible highlights of our Ukrainian cruises because of its unique wildlife and stunning nature.
Some part of the river Danube located in Romania is so picturesque and impressive that UNESCO included the river in the list of world-class attractions.
Ukraine is one of the largest and the most vibrant European countries. Cruising downstream the Dnieper, from Ukrainian capital, Kyiv to the Black Sea gives great opportunities for exploring ancient and legendary trade routes of this fine country.
