Having been the muse for decades of artistic legacy, the majesty of the Danube river is no myth. Winding through 10 of Europe’s most breath-taking countries, it encompasses four capital cities, Vienna, Budapest, Belgrade and Bratislava, all of which are must-see pit stops.

A mighty river by anyone’s standards, the legendary Rhine river flows through six countries and has served as a link between the north and south of Europe since the Romans. The Main River is considered one of its major tributaries, while the ‘romantic’ Moselle meets it in Koblenz.
