Europe : Danube
The Danube basin in Europe extends almost 3000 km from the Alps in Germany and Austria to the Danube Delta and the Black Sea coast of Romania. Covering over 800,000 square kilometres, this region of Europe is the land surrounding the Danube River, its tributaries and flood plains.

Dominated and both divided and united by the Danube River, the second longest river in Europe, the surrounding lands that form the Danube basin are steeped in history, with evidence that parts of it have been settled since the 5th millennium BC.
