Would you like to immerse yourself in the beauty and discover the secrets of less popular places along the Danube?
12 Tours are revealing the secrets of cities along the Danube in 6 different countries. The tours were created within the DANUrB project (2017-2019) and are available for everyone on the PocketGuide application for FREE.
PocketGuide is a location-based mobile application that guides you through the city by voice, just like a real tour guide. Once you have downloaded the tour you have chosen, you can use it in an offline mode. The DANUrB project aimed at creating a regional network through tourism and education to strengthen the “Danube” cultural identity and solidarity. Part of achieving this goal was giving the opportunity to every travel enthusiast to visit and learn about less popular places along the Danube River.
