View of the small port on the Danube and the fortress in the background (with this reversed clock)

The Danube or Donau is Europe's second longest river, after the Volga. It is located in Central and Eastern Europe. The Danube flows through 10 countries, more than any other river in the world. Originating in Germany, the Danube flows southeast for 2,860 km (1,780 mi), passing through or touching the border of Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova and Ukraine before emptying into the Black Sea.

Petrovaradin Fortress, nicknamed "Gibraltar on/of the Danube" is a fortress in the town of Petrovaradin, itself part of the City of Novi Sad, Serbia. It is located on the right bank of the Danube river. The cornerstone of the present-day southern part of the fortress was laid on 18 October 1692 by Charles Eug鋝e de Cro. Petrovaradin Fortress has many underground tunnels as well as 16 km of uncollapsed underground countermine system.
