With the recent flooding of the Danube (or duna in Hungarian) we went to go and have a look last Wednesday. Near Petőfi bridge, the river had overflowed into the street, which was already closed for traffic, so I went to stand on it for a picture. Soldiers and volunteers in towns were packing sand bags all along the river to try to hold back the water.
