The Danube, the Architecture of a beyond Compare Area


  • Raluca-Eugenia Voinea National College “I.L. Caragiale”




The Danube, one of the most cosmopolitan rivers in Europe, can be qualified as a geographical, historical, economic and cultural place of transition. Pointing out such a coordinate, the Danube emphasizes overcoming identities, boundaries and demystification. The Danube, this one-of-a-kind cultural area, represents a border identity through its status conferred by its historical and geographical position, but also by the culture in relation to the significant names of the artists and writers. This is the place which gets altogether the national and cultural diversity “a space in which cultures met and broke apart, like any other border that might seem like a  place of transition, but also a barrier” (Magris Claudio, Danubius, București, Ed. Univers, 1994, p.424).
