The river Danube is the second longest European river after the Volga.  The Danube is Europe´s longest river which flows west to east, from Central to Eastern Europe. It rises in the Black Forest mountains of western Germany and flows for 2,850 km to its mouth on the Black Sea. Along its course, it passes thorough nine countries: Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania and Ukraine. As you can see in the follow map:

Danube and walts are joined forever since the great composer Johann Strauss the Young wrote The Blue Danube that  became the symbol of imperial Vienna. This is a short version to practice if you play the piano or only to listen.

The Danube basin is home to a diverse system of natural habitats. Among these are the Germany’s Black Forest, the Alps and Carpathian Mountains, the Hungarian puszta plains, the Bulgarian islands and the giant reed beds and marshes of the Danube Delta.

These habitats are home to a rich and unique biological diversity and species.

Now, you can answer my question. I hope all of you want to travel by the Danube.
