Danube Day 2017 in Serbia

Planning is underway for Danube Day 2017 including a national event at Zemun Quay in Belgrade. Details will be posted here in the next days. Read on for a summary of activities in 2016.

Serbia celebrated at 17 different venues across 13 towns and cities in 2016!

In Belgrade, eco workshops and outdoor classroom days enhanced children's sense of Danube identity, encouraging them to look after their rivers into the future. Belgrade’s Great War Island was the scene for the 9th 'Save the Danube Eco Camp' where older students from across the country took part in a week-long outdoor adventure: camping under the stars and learning about environmental issues from national experts.

Other events took place across northern and central Serbia. Whether through river outings, environmental actions, artistic ventures, sport or fun competitions, Danube solidarity was celebrated in Stara Palanka, Donji Milanovac, Novi Sad, Veliko Gradiste, Kladovo, Pancevo, Golubac, Smederevo, Cuprija, Negotin, Odzaci and Backa Palanka!
