River Danube Boat Trip Oct 2008
We took a fabulous boat trip up and down the banks of the River Danube, taking in the spectacular views of the city on either side of the river along its banks. The river starts in the Black Forest in Germany and flows through many countries before entering the Black Sea. Here is a site link about the River http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danube & http://www.iearn.hu/waters/kulso_oldalak/danube2.htm
The river is fed by the snow capped mountains of Switzerland and can raise to frightening levels as the mountain snow melts during the spring and summer months. The river at Budapest separates Buda from Pest. There are splendid views of the old and new buildings all along the river banks. There are many boats along the river including floating hotels which cruise along the river from country to country.
Above are some views from along the river.
