Last time Danube was frozen, it was in 1987 (Budapest) and there is a pretty good chance that it will do it again this year.
The other big river(Tisza) is already frozen.

Doesn't look that bad but hey, we see these kind of road conditions quite often so you kind of adapt. But I do agree that with summer tyres it's probably not a very safe nor a very pleasant ride.

So after knowing an acquaintance paid €9600 for 12 tickets and a Mansion Lodge in a music festival in July, now I got other unrelated colleague asking if I want to go there with ticket (€190) and road expenses paid.

I explain: they know I don't mind not drinking so I can drive (and I refuse to get a ride in any car whose driver drank even below the limit). So because we are all in the 26 average age group, they don't want to go camping or fork €500 for crappy hotels so they offered me to buy my ticket and paid all other expenses if I drive her and 4 of her friends which I know 2 to the festival right over the border and back.

Problem is: I'm really not into all-day music festivals anymore. It was fun when I was 18-19 and I went to a couple. I still like electronic music but not in a festival with dozen thousand people and not much comfort. So I guess I'll pass that, though my friend is going to be disappointed. Also, while I don't mind driving a zafira around, I'm also past the age of being the one looking out for friends in parties and being responsible to take them back to Tilburg 3 consecutive days. I had already my fair share of being the cool guy taking fellow pals I parties.

In any case this is my 3rd year in Tilburg and the fuss about this festival in Boom grows every day!

I don't remember to see such a winter in Romania (and I'm born in 1970) .

Thank you bogdymol for the pics.

I thought that's some mountain pass, now I see it's only 100m above the sea level.

I am pretty certain I read somewhere that in olden days there was an inn open during winter in the middle of Baltic sea.

What about this one

A harsh winter had forced the Dano-Norwegian fleet in port, and frozen the Great Belt and Little Belt. After entering Jutland from the south, a Swedish army of 7,000 battle-hardened veterans marched across the icy Little Belt on January 30, 1658.

It's incredible how much snow there is in south-eastern part of Romania in some little villages. There were places where you could see just the chimneys, the rest of the house beeing burried completely in 4-5 m of snow. Watch this video:
