A group of friends of me and my husband tried to go down the Danube. Despite I have great respect of water I was really worried at first. I have to admit that a sail on the Danube is among my most precious experiences. We took a ship below Devin Castle rock , at the place where the Danube meets the River Morava. Next we sailed through Bratislavaand sailed under every bridge in Bratislava. On from Cunov we continued on the Danube's branches. There we dared even to swim as the current wasn't that strong. We spent two nights in tent, cooked our food on fire and we were talking, signing by a bonfire until the early morning. It was just an unforgettable weekend.
Did you ever think of sailing some river? What would you say if you sailed down the Dunajec, the river which carved out a beautiful canyon on the 18th kilometer? Just join our photo-contest that you may find HERE.
