A journey along the Lower Danube between Budapest and Bucharest provides you the chance to explore Eastern Europe’s lesser known towns and the opportunity to view the spectacular and impressive Danube Delta, home to an abundance of birdlife and wildlife.
From Budapest, pass through the inspiring landscapes of Croatia, Serbia, Romania and Bulgaria. Come face to face with the distant past with visits to Kalocsa, one of Hungary’s oldest towns located on the Great Hungarian Plain and Belgrade, one of Europe’s oldest capitals.
Cruise through the iconic Iron Gates, a narrow gorge that the Danube has carved out between the Carpathian and Balkan Mountains and marks the border between Serbia and Romania. Glide past the towering cliffs and admire the magnificent rock sculpture at Decebalus, a true highlight of your cruise.
For some of the region’s most beautiful backdrops, continue on to the World Heritage-listed Danube Delta, one of Europe’s best preserved deltas, home to over 300 species of birds. Today, the Danube Delta is a nature lover’s paradise, home to rare species of pelican, eagles, ibises and a wide variety of waders as well as beavers, otters and seals.
