About Danube to the Black Sea Cruises

From the Hungarian capital of Budapest, the River Danube flows south through the Hungarian plains, and then turns east through Serbia and Belgrade. A cruise along the Lower Danube continues through the spectacular Iron Gates, a dramatic gorge separating the Carpathian and Balkan mountains, before reaching Bulgaria, Romania and finally the Black Sea.

During a River Danube to the Black Sea cruise through Eastern Europe, discover outstanding natural beauty and intriguing cities, rich in history. On some cruises, it is possible to visit the vast Hungarian Puszta and witness a traditional horse show, as well as explore the UNESCO-listed Danube Delta, renowned for its wildlife.
