For a long part of history it has been Europe's main crossroads of civilizations and culture, people and goods. The banks of this river are filled with people's experiences from ancient history until today, and the powerful Danube currents have always offered insight into the possible victory over deceptive eternity and the actual material transience.
The Danube region has always been special since it is a birth place and cradle of European spirit. The Danube has become a metaphor of development and influential paths of Europe which have built and enriched this continent, even if sometimes they reduced it to rubble and caused it to regress.
Each region, each city and village along the Danube is unique in its own right, but all together they form a mosaic of the general image of the passing of life on the Danube banks.
This powerful river offers the possibility for all European people to recognize their unique future connected to this river.
That is why we should believe in the healing power of the Danube.
