Danube Day

On the 29th of June each year, the 14 countries of the Danube Basin jointly celebrate one of Europe’s greatest river systems and the people and wildlife that rely on it.

Danube Day is a celebration of a cleaner, safer river following 18 years of international cooperation. Huge festivals on the banks of the rivers; public meetings and fun, educational events pay tribute to the Danube rivers, its peoples and the progress that has been made. Danube Day strengthens our “Danube solidarity” highlighting that, in spite of our different cultures and histories, we have a shared desire and responsibility to protect our precious resource.

The event is managed each year by the ICPDR and its partners. Find out how Danube Day is being celebrated in your country by browsing the Danube Day country pages.
