Danube River

The river Danube is the second longest river in Europe after the Volga.  This river rises on the Black Forest mountains of western Germany and ends on the Black Sea; it passes trhough ten countries: Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croacia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania, Moldova and Ukraine. Danube measures 2850 kilometres. Its waters served as a vital comercial highway between nations. Also, the river’s majesty has been celebrated in music, for example, the famous waltz An der schönen, blauen Donau by Johann Strauss the Younger.
