  1. I got to see the Danube while I was visiting Vienna, but I'd love to see it in Hungary, too. I think a river cruise down it would be so fun!

  2. Eight bridges in one city for one river? That must be huge well 1770 miles is a long ways. The size of those boats show its size. There is some awesome architecture in Budapest.
