Danube Day 2018 / 2019 in the Czech Republic

Planning is underway for Danube Day 2019. Details will be posted here in June. Read on for a summary of activities in 2018.

In Prague, Danube Day was celebrated at the Water Research Institute Open Day. Visiting groups from primary and secondary schools enjoyed water related activities, puzzles and videos. They learned about the Danube rivers and the importance of international relations. Bilateral Czech-Austrian cooperation was used as a case study of what can be achieved when countries and communities work together. 

In Moravia-Silesia, the village of Mosty u Jablunkova dedicated its annual 'Children's Day' to the Danube rivers. Toddlers to teens enjoyed river-themed puzzles and creative eco activities aimed at fostering basin-wide solidarity.
