What’s Best Between Cruising the Upper Danube vs Cruising the Lower Danube? A Complete Danube Cruising Guide.

Both the Upper Danube and the Lower Danube have their own unique attractions, so the “best” one really depends on what you’re interested in. The Upper Danube is known for its picturesque landscapes, historic cities, and cultural sites. It flows through countries like Germany, Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary. Highlights include the historic city of Regensburg in Germany, the beautiful Wachau Valley in Austria, and the vibrant cities of Budapest in Hungary and Bratislava in Slovakia.

As you may have heard before, “traveling is all about the Journey, not about the destination”. And it was time to build a new style of travel to keep the journey as interesting as possible.

Презентация книги: Человек мира! – Ян Будро рассказывает о своих 17-летних гастролях, когда он посещает все страны мира.

Но зачем останавливаться только на одном… Я решил собрать команду из десятков редакторов и переводчиков, чтобы вместе выпустить книгу на 5 языках. Вот так! Много работы, но с таким количеством свободного времени во время самоизоляции, я думаю, мы можем сказать, что это было хорошее время, чтобы потратить бесконечные часы на редактирование.
