Get active for a healthier Danube!
Danube Day 2018 is a celebration of healthier rivers following 24 years of ground-breaking international cooperation. Throughout June and July, riverside festivals, public meetings and fun, educational events pay tribute to the Danube rivers, their peoples and the progress being made. Today, Monday 25th June, sees the start of Bulgaria's festivities in Vidin, Belene and Baykal. While last Saturday saw Slovakia's Festival at Gabčíkovo Dam and a Children's Festival at Budapest Zoo in Hungary. Such events strengthen our "Danube solidarity": in spite of different cultures and histories, we have a shared desire and responsibility to protect our precious resource.
