River Cruises on the Danube towards the Black Sea

The cruise from Amsterdam to the Black Sea takes three weeks, with shorter cruises from Germany or Budapest in Hungary. All take the River Danube through Serbia, Croatia, Bulgaria and Romania. The Danube flows through Serbian capital Belgrade, cruising through the dramatic ‘Iron Gates’ gorge separating Serbia from Romania. Some Black Sea river cruises may reach the Danube delta, most will end with time in Bucharest, capital of Romania and its massive Peoples Palace built by the former dictator Ceaucescu.
