Within DANUBEparksCONNECTED, the Danube-wide flood prevention dyke evolves from its origin as flood prevention infrastructure to Green Infrastructure, linking valuable dry habitats. The flood prevention dyke along the Danube is a "corridor" not exclusively for animals and plants, but also for people: more and more tourists use the Euro Velo 6 for cycling and recreation.

Our professional cyclist Jovan Eraković is travelling along the EuroVelo 6 from 12th April to mid-June and visits all DANUBEPARKS Protected Areas to learn more about the implemented nature conservation activities of DANUBEparksCONNECTED.
