Pleasure cruises and shipping along the Danube River is paralyzed due to the worst drought in the country in the last two hundred years. As levels go down, debris and bombs from World War II are exposed.
The water level of the second biggest river in Europe has been dropping due to to the low volume of rain in the Balkans and Easter Europe. As a result around eighty cargo ships on the border of Hungary and Serbia cannot continue with their journey.
The Danube River passes thru 8 countries and stretches to around 1,777miles before exiting and joining the Black Sea. Its length and coverage proves to be vital serving as a major transportation route in Europe.
As the waters shrinks, shipping and cruising has been riskier as old bombs which did not explode and remains of ships from the World War II emerge.
