We have recently been on this cruise from Nuremburg to Budapest. Everything about it was superb. Very interesting places, excellent food and wine,great entertainment and wonderful company. The cruise director Richard and his assistant Sheena were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble.

I know......Johnson about the Thames! But it is equally true of the Danube and the Sava as they flow through the heart of Belgrade. Serbia and the Balkans have too much history it is said, but here by the side of this great fast flowing river you can see the strategic reasons for the birth of the white city...( the... More

The best view is from fortress, from monument of Belgrade's winner. The man with sword and pidgeon. Great walking zone, nice air. But avoid it after 22h night.

If you have some time to spare, then take a boat tour that lasts a few hours. Boats are available along the river on the north side of the fortress. We got a fun captain who told us interesting stories about Belgrades past, present and recent past (the war).

The staff of Viking can't be beat! However, the Danube isn't blue like the waltz, and smells pretty darn bad in Budapest and Belgrade. Port of call stops along the way were hit and miss. Thank god Romania (fabulous Bucharest) was our terminus, as it is a terrifically vibrant and highly educated metro area. Romanians are a wonderful and welcoming... More

If you head to the castle, you can get a great view of where the Danube and Sava meet. If you head up along the river you can get even nicer photographs of the river. And if you REALLY want to see a great view of the river, head out of Belgrade to Ram Fortress and see it shimmer, separating... More

This river is Europe’s second longest, after the Volga. The Danube passes through four central European capitals before emptying into the Black Sea. For many centuries the Danube has been a reflection of Europe’s history and destiny; an economic lifeline, a great highway to conquest and a source of inspiration for poets and musicians. Yes it may only be a... More

My husband and I walked to the danuebe, thinking it was going to be a short walk from our hotel. It wasn't, we were both hot and tired when we found ourselves on a path. We stopped and got sandwiches and had a lovely picnic. Swans were swimming by and it ended up being a nice, relaxing day.

I only saw one bridge over the Danube at Belgrade. There were several which crossed the Sava River. Access to the pedestrian sidewalk isn't made easy and the condition of the walkways; poor but safe. On both ends of the roadway it is a plenty long walk before you get to where the bridge crosses the Danube. Once I got... More

It was the worst flooding in 150 years when I was there. I helped fill some sand bags. From the fortress you can see the two rivers converge.
