After the Volga river, the Danube is the second largest river in Europe that occupies the 33rd position in the world. It springs at the foot of the Schwarzwald Mountain in the southwestern Germany, which is the place where the Breg and Brigah rivers join at the German town Donaueschingen. Along its course it passes through 10 countries: Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova and Ukraine. The length of the Danube from its source to the mouth, in the form of a delta in the Black Sea, is 2850 km. The Danube River represents a very important transport corridor called the Pan- European transport corridor VII. The Danube, as a navigable river, flows through Serbia at a length of 588 km from Bezdan to Prahovo. It passes through 22 towns and municipalities in Serbia, and in this region live almost a million inhabitants of our country.
The Danube river basin (Podunavlje) includes four settlements that follow the Danube stream from the direction of Novi Sad, continuing to Stari Slankamen, i.e. Surduk, Belegiš, Stari Banovci and Novi Banovci. The Danube coast is not only untouched but also authentic, with a picturesque landscape with loess sections, inlets, cafes and beaches. It has all the advantages and benefits for enjoying the beauty and magic of this beautiful large river.
