Austria & Hungary | The Danube

Known as the lifeblood of Europe, the Danube basin was the cradle of some highly-advanced early human cultures, such as the Neolithic and Chalcolithic cultures of the Vina and Vucedol. The mighty river rises in the Black Forest mountains of western Germany and flows through to the Black Sea – passing through ten countries on its way.
