Flooded Danube

Klížska Nemá, Nitra Region, Slovakia
6 Kudos
We recently completed a one week AMA Danube River Cruise and, apparently, we were on the river during and just after historic flooding. This was so obvious when we left Budapest, Hungary, enroute to Bratislava, Slovakia. There were sections of the river where the banks had just disappeared, and also sections where islands were now just small piles of rocks barely protruding above the water's surface. We actually missed one of our ports - Nuremberg - because the waters were so high that a lock was damaged and we could not pass through so we had to spend an extra night in Regensberg and be taken to Nuremberg by bus. Regardless, it was an amazing experience and we can't wait to take another river cruise.

I made this collage out of several of the pictures I took of the flooding on the shoreline while we sailed the Danube
