In the early twenties the Ganz Danubius yard built six sisterships for inland trading. As the owner went bust before delivery, the ships were taken over by a state company and renamed LI, LII, LIII, LIV, LV and LVI. This is Ven Duna, which started life as LIV and after an adventurous career at both the Donau and the Lake Balaton, has returned to the Danube in 2010 to serve as a tourist boat. I sailed on her last week, and the history of the ship is depicted by some very interesting posters. Four of the six ships originally built, are still around with two actively trading. Two were lost during WWII. Ven Duna is now running with her third engine, an East German built SKL direct drive diesel running at 500 revs maximum.

EDIT: The location of the shot is Budapest, a port that does not seem to exist in our current system, in spite of the fact that ocean going ships were built there in the not too distant past.
