KM1426.0 Dunav river
The Dunav river between Croatia and Serbia is short (137 km); the northern section of 50 km winds through a flat, wooded marsh, as shown above. The official (but disputed in some places) border winds even more, crossing the river many times. Skippers of private cruising vessels must consider this as Serbian waters and stop at Bezdan to clear customs. There is a 50 to 70 euro charge for transiting Serbian waters – even though the Danube is an international waterway. You must then clear into Croatia if stopping at Vukovar, or proceed to Backa Palanka, Serbia. There are also moorings at Apatin, Serbia or at Osijek, Croatia, 20km west on the Drava river.
