The Danube is the most international river in the world, passing the most countries. From Vienna to its delta on the Black Sea, the Danube flows for a distance of over 2000 km and passes through 10 countries, all bearing witness to 25 centuries of European history, culture, and civilization. From Habsburg Austria to the strains of Tzigane violins, from Budapest to a birds’ paradise, the Danube makes a perfect traveling companion.
About Mythical Roads:
Whether remote or packed with tourists, recent or old, famous or forgotten, certain routes are paved with legends. This series explores itineraries that have made history across five continents—some roads and rivers that separated countries, and others that formed links, creating pathways for traders, fortune-seekers, evangelists, conquerors, and travelers. As historical symbols, these routes now ignite the imaginations of millions of people in search of adventure and freedom.
The original and poetic approach of this series casts a new light on these mythical roads. Throughout the journey, the routes unfold through the eyes of the men and women who live and work along them, and who continue to sustain the legends.
Personal adventures alternate with extraordinary explorations, unforgettable encounters, and surprising developments.
