    Danube Iron Gates

    On this 15-day cruise we show you all the greatest treasures along what is probably Europe's most beautiful river, the mighty Danube, as it flows through the heart of Central and Eastern Europe to the Black Sea.  From Passau, "The Three Rivers City",  this represents eight countries, five capital cities, and a dozen languages.
