There is a fascinating history of the changing power groups and populations along this famous river. But the writer's pedantic, verbose style makes it tough going. Better to read travel books about each country you will see if taking a river cruise.

We went on a Danube cruise with the book. I read it on the way in the airports and on the flights. It was loaned to several other travelers who wanted to know more than the guides told us. I would recommend it. Now I want to see where the Danube and Rhine begin.

Perfect reading for the history, culture and monuments along the most popular river in Europe, which runs from the Black Sea to Germany.
