Welcome to Eastern Europe, a region of untold natural splendour, where historic capital cities like Belgrade and Bucharest contrast wonderfully against landscapes of evocative beauty. Winding through the heart of the region towards the Black Sea, the great Danube River offers passage through Serbia, Bulgaria and Romania, allowing you to alight in such destinations as Braila, Tulcea, Saint George, Silistra, Rousse and Belgrade, whilst savouring the postcard-vistas of the Iron Gates and the Danube Delta. Marvel at the rare pelican colonies of the Danube canals; step back in time at Silistra Fort; discover the Byzantine treasures of Rousse and Nikopol; and explore the wonderful cultural highlights of the Serbian capital of Belgrade.
