Get active for a safer Danube!
Danube Day 2019 was a celebration of safer rivers following 25 years of groundbreaking international cooperation in the region. Festivals along the banks of the Danube and throughout major cities, including various fun activities and educational events paid tribute to the river, its peoples, and the progress made in three decades of action.
Events took place in Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova and Ukraine. Such events strengthen our "Danube solidarity": in spite of different cultures and histories, we have a shared desire and responsibility to protect our precious resource.
