Danube boat trips weren't always offered as leisurely vacations - people have been cruising the Danube for hundreds of years. Since the river runs its course through such a vast stretch of land, the Danube has been a monumentally influential resource for all that have created civilizations along its banks. In the 7th century BC, Greeks sailed upstream to conduct trade, and later part of the river served as a northern boundary of the great Roman Empire. During World War I, the river served to ally certain countries to each other, and to sever ties between others, such as Slovakia and Hungary - where relations remain a little precarious to this very day.
