The Danube

From the beginning of the world to the present day, the Danube is the river of destiny and river of life. The Danube is a Celtic word for river, water. The legend says that a third part of the Danube, named Istar after the deity of waters, ruler over the people, flows from the Achilles spring. The father of history, Herodotus, sailed the Danube, which was then called Istros. The poets and historians noted that Jason sailed the Danube waters in search of the Golden Fleece.
