How would you react if someone promises you a river but then it looks like a lake?
What we thought when we saw the widest point of the Danube: “Wait… this is not a river. It’s a massive lake!”. Nope. It’s a river. It’s still the Danube, only so much bigger than we have seen it until this point. After travelling along the Danube for three weeks already we really thought we had seen it in every shape. This river knows how to surprise us!
From one river bank to the other the distance is 6.5 km. We had a look at it from the top of the Golubac Fortress and had troubles to recognise our Danube as we knew it! We also explored this massive part of the river by boat and went further to the narrowest point of the Danube (170 m.). Despite their huge difference they are almost next to each other. Nature has some crazy ideas!
