DANUBE RIVER

The Danube runs through the very centre of Europe, which makes it a convenient

destination for anyone wanting to take a river cruise. Cruising on the river has been

popular for many years and was particularly so before international air travel became

accessible to the masses. Some of the most beautiful cities in all of Europe can be

found on this river, including the capital of Slovakia, Bratislava and the capital of

Hungary, Budapest. One of the best things about cruising on the Danube is that you

are able to see very different parts of Europe. Although these countries are very close

together, they all have very different histories; the contrast between a city such as

Vienna, in Austria and Belgrade, in Bosnia, is quite remarkable.

RHINE RIVER

The Rhine is undoubtedly one of the most famous rivers in all of Europe. It is also

well known as a wonderful destination for cruises, partly because of the spectacular

scenery that can be found along a large part of its length. Certain sections of the

Rhine are positively littered with charming castles and ancient structures, which

will fascinate any cruise passenger. For history lovers, the Rhine is arguably one of

the best rivers to cruise on anywhere in the world. There is times of the year when

cruising the Rhine can be a magical experience. This is generally either in the height

of summer or the middle of winter. Summer is certainly the most popular time for

cruising and passengers travelling during July and August are likely to be treated to

some incredible firework displays, visible from the river, which are organised by many

of the historic castles and fortresses along the route.
