#1 of 136 in Parks in Hungary
Take a cruise or walk along Danube, the river passing through 10 countries and four capital cities, including Budapest. The European Union's longest river, it originates in Germany's Black Forest and moves through Eastern Europe until it ends in the Black Sea via Romania and Ukraine. Photograph the river flanked by the Buda and Pest sides of the Hungarian capital from the famous Chain Bridge, which showcases the waterway. Step aboard a cruise for expansive views of the city, or stroll past monuments and historical buildings situated along the river, such as Parliament.
