I liked going down to the Danube, but I must say it looks awesome in Austria, but by this point it is very polluted which is a real shame. Scary stories about bodies washing down from the Balkan conflict though!

Just to see this river is a pleasure! It is so wide and beautiful. Crossing over on the train to Romania gives a great view!

Very few Bulgarians are even familiar with the splendors of the coast here. Tutrakan, between Rousse and Silistra, is particularly unknown, because it was a no-go area during communism, however it is wonderful town with Roman roots, amazing river views, and several good museums.

The Danube River is a wonderful place to travel along. You can visit beautiful cities both in Romania and Bulgaria and have a look on the ancient Greek or Roman heritage landmarks in these cities. Danube Delta is especially beautiful and unique. The best time to visit is Spring and Autumn when you can find a lot of birds and... More
