The Danube flows very fast, and this museum, in a lovely building, illustrates the struggle over the centuries to travel up and down. Vast teams of horses, pulling long strings of barges up the river very well displayed. Do visit!

This museum is almost completely dedicated to a life on and around the Danube with some other nautical additions. The exhibits are exceptionally good and many have translation into English. Getting to the museum is an easy walk from the bus stop. On the return...More
