Although the Danube has always been an important segment of their national identity, ten Danube countries - Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova and Ukraine, had different approaches to the Danube tourism potentials and development. In some parts of the Danube region, tourism is fully developed, while in others it is not the case. DCC therefore contributes to the integration of interests, projects and activities in the field of tourism, with the accent on the Middle and Lower Danube.
Furthermore, some of these countries were sometimes the subjects of political conflicts, even wars, with poor contacts and cooperation. One of the most important missions of DCC is enhancing the cross border cooperation and promoting mutual interests.
