Dunav river, Croatia

The Dunav river between Croatia and Serbia is short (137 km); the northern section of 50 km winds through a flat, wooded marsh. The official (but disputed in some places) border winds even more, crossing the river many times. Skippers of private cruising vessels must consider this as Serbian waters and stop at Bezdan to clear customs. There is a 50 to 70 euro charge for transiting Serbian waters – even though the Danube is an international waterway. You must then clear into Croatia if stopping at Vukovar , or proceed to Backa Palanka, Serbia.

Thousands of photos taken on two trips down the Danube (first trip starting at Calais, France and the second trip from Vlissingen, Netherlands, both all the way to the Black Sea) have been used to create the EuroCanals PhotoNav Guides for the Danube. They include the photos shown on this website.

In full-page format they display the details of landmarks along the route, in a km-by-km sequence. The photos are identified by kilometer post; they include ports, bridges, locks as well as sites worth noting. Examples are described on this page:
