Abstract:

The River Danube is an international waterway flowing 2857 km across EUROPE and is listed immediately after the river Volga, as the second biggest river in Europe. It flows from the heights of the Schwarzwald Massif down to its estuary in the Black Sea Delta. In its passage, the river crosses 22 geographical longitudes, joining 8 countries: Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria and Ukraine. It is largely these factors, together with the importance of the management of its water resources, which historically encouraged civilisations and cultures to develop along the banks of the river. The Danube has in Romania a length of 1075 km; they are only five permanent crossings: the paper presents a short overview of the Romanian Danube Bridges and some perspectives for new bridges across the Danube.
