Did you know?

The lower course of the Danube forms the border between Bulgaria and Romania,
through a broad drainage basin between the Carpathian and Balkan mountain ranges.
The river ends in a vast Delta in Romania, the largest in Europe,
with an area of 1,700 square mi (4,345 square km);  part of the delta also lies in the Ukraine.
Flow at the mouth of the Danube averages 229,450 cubic ft (6,500 cubic m) per second,
but has been recorded at 10 times this volume during high flooding.
Some 122 million tons of sediment is discharged each year, creating one of the most extensive and fertile wetlands on Earth.
Most of this is now protected by the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve, 1.7 million acres (679,222 hectares) of marshes and lakes, declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1991.

For many centuries the Danube was the border between the civilized Greco-Roman world
and the Germanic barbarians to the north.
