The Danube has it origin in Germany near Donaueschingen. Here two small rivers unite to form the Danube. During its way to the Black Sea it passes through many countries, and no less than 4 capitals: Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest and Belgrade. The river is also famous for the piece of music that Johann Strauss jr wrote in 1867: "An der Schöne Blaue Donau". The Danube is connected to the Rhine by means of the 171 kilometres long Rhine–Main–Danube Canal which was completed in 1992 and which makes it possible for ships to get from Rotterdam in the Netherlands to Sulina in Romania.
