Rivers are one of the most fascinating and beautiful natural wonders on earth and along with the sea and canals, they were once the main means of transporting goods.
As a result history and culture is ripe along the banks of the world’s rivers and this is one of the reasons these ancient highways are now popular destinations for river cruises.
