“Can be fun :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Well, everybody will see the Danube who visits Budapest once. It's usually a good idea to get on a boat trip, it's a lot more relaxing sightseeing with beer, but optionally you can also take a walk next to river :) The night-lights can give a quite "romantic" mood also, if you need an atmosphere like that.

“Great bridges but pretty dirty river”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We did a boat ride on the Danube river. The river is lined of wonderful buildings in Budapest e.g. Parliament, churches etc. But the river itself is very dirty which is a pity.

“Danube”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

The Danube was known in Latin as Danubius, Danuvius, Ister, in Ancient Greek as Ἴστρος (Istros). The Dacian/Thracian name was Τάναις/Donaris/Donaris (upper Danube) and Istros (lower Danube).[2] Its Thraco-Phrygian name was Matoas,[3] "the bringer of luck".[4]
