Napoleon called the Danube the “Queen of Europe’s rivers,” and rightly so, because, even though the Volga is geographically the longest river on the Continent, no other river in the world reigns over as many culturally and historically diverse cities and landscapes as the Danube. Originating in Germany's Black Forest, it travels almost three thousand kilometres to the delta on the Romanian/Ukrainian Black Sea coast. Passing through ten countries and four major cities, the Danube is the most international river in the world. It is a lifeline that connects a succession of spectacular river landscapes: the karst landscape of the Swabian Alps, the endless expanse of the heat-shimmering plains, the snow-capped peaks of the Alpine foothills and the majestic canyons of the Iron Gate. And finally a unique river delta where the Danube forms the largest reed bed on earth. Despite the Danube’s importance as a modern waterway for transportation, it still retains the charm of a bygone era, and is full of mystery. Uniquely, the Danube officially starts where other rivers end: at the river mouth. Here, the old lighthouse of Sulina marks the beginning of this great river.
