Danube Day 2017 in Slovakia

Planning is underway for Danube Day 2017. Details will be posted here in the spring. Read on for a summary of activities in 2016.

2016's festivities took place in Bratislava where 700 people enjoyed a day of Danube fun, opened by the Environment Minister, László Sólymos.

Among the events were free boat trips; live rescue demonstrations; traditional and modern music and dance and the chance to explore the river's hidden world through microscopes. Young visitors were enthralled with the mini Danube zoo; puppet theatre; story-telling by a water sprite; face-painting and awesome magic and bubble shows! Water and environmental organisations showcased their work and demonstrated how we can all act to help our rivers.
