The Old Danube is a very picturesque area accessible to the public both for swimming and as a leisure park.

Tourists and locals alike enjoy this particular spot. This swimming area is perfectly suited for all those who love row boats, motor boats, paddling boats and sail boats.

There are pools by the shore, as well as various restaurants, snack bars, sports clubs and more.

  2. Looks like a peaceful kind of setting. Perfect for getting away from the pressure of the week.

    Just to clarify what I said in my post, the ferries to the barrier islands I spoke of aren't terribly expensive, but the private boats that tie up in the harbor can run into millions of dollars to buy and probably not much less to maintain. But unless you want to buy your own ferry, the prices to get out to the islands are pretty reasonable. Depending on where you're going, the round trip might cost as much as $20USD.

    Now getting there from your part of the world could be a little pricey I should think.

  3. Whenever I see anything to do with Danube, I too think of Johann Sebastian Strauss and his beautiful music; The Blue Danube, Tales from the Vienna Woods, etc. Beautiful photographs.

  4. This is lovely. Though I expect old architecture and stone bridges to grace the Danube! The modern boats remind me of marinas on the Jersey Shore. Thanks for sharing these great seascapes.

  15. I guess the Danube is a lot cleaner than the Nile, in which we saw the corpses of cows and other animals! Anyway by the look of your photos it looks very inviting.
