Danube Day 2017 in Bosnia & Herzegovina

Planning is underway for Danube Day 2017. Details will be posted here in the spring. Read on for a summary of activities in 2016.

In 2016, cyclists from each Sava country completed the Sava 2016 Cycling Tour. Passing through towns along the northern border of Bosnia-Herzegovinia, the cyclists spread messages of Sava and Danube solidarity. Six cyclists completed the mammoth challenge to cycle along the river from source to mouth in just 9 days.

Days 5-7 saw local Bosnia-Herzegovinian cyclists join the tour as it passed through Gradiška, Bardača, Brod, Odžak, Šamac and Brčk. The event was organised by cycling, tourism and environmental clubs in each country in cooperation with the International Sava River Basin Commission.
