Danube Hungaria

The Hungarian Danube km 1708 - 1433          

We start early in the morning, it is a long day's stage to the next harbour.

After the Slovakian border a lot of traffic on the river

River kilometre 1734.

From here on there is a lot of fishing in the river.

Eztergom lies ahead

The small inconspicuous entrance to the marina can only be found if you know the exact river kilometre.

In the marina of Atilla we stay to visit from here Budapest

The Hungarian state was founded here

The fortress of Eztergom from the outside

The main square of Eztergom

We take the bus to Budapest and do sightseeing

A different kind of cable car

German T-Com also has a strong presence in Hungary

The next day we continue

VISEGRAD Fortress (High Castle).

A lot is being built.

You can already see great ships on the Danube

The Parliament of Budapest

The next night we spend in this marina (Harosi Yacht Club)

Wind power stations are also being built.

This marina is not yet to be found in a river guide. (Kisapostag km 1568 was closed again in 2014)

This ship was marked in our river guide as an overnight accommodation. We were unfriendly chased away.

Paks. Here we have the most expensive overnight stay on our journey. 27 euros.

River idyll in Paks

Everyday life. Forest on both sides and a ship now and then.

In the middle of the cooling water channel of a nuclear power plant sits an angler

The 1500 km mark has been cracked

A beautiful mooring in a beautiful city. Baja

I regularly told my daughter about the experiences on the trip.

The pedestrian zone

A stork fishes in peace directly at the boat

In this old house there is the town museum

From then on this spectacle was offered at almost every place to stay overnight.

We're joking, it would be a welcome for us travelers.

At night we see a nice fireworks display on the opposite side of the canal.

It goes on again

Through a canal system we drive back towards the Danube

Back on the Danube, about 50 km to the border.

Before the Croatian border I remember my language skills again.

The two Britons smiled at it a bit, but it was quite useful after all.

The number of bridges is decreasing and the number of ferries is increasing

It's really hot, just over 40°C.

The border from Hungary to Croatia. First we go to the border police,

then to the harbour master and customs. Such a border formality takes about half an hour to one hour.

New information from 2010 about the border crossing: The border formalities no longer here at the pier from the picture but already about 1 km upstream shortly before km 1449.

There is a jetty and all formalities can be completed in one building. Pictures can be found in Donau 2012....
