On December, 6-7, 2006, the Danube region cities’ Mayors Conference took place in Vienna (Austria)

The conference, having been carried out in the  network of “Donauhanse” project by Vienna Mayoralty, was participated by 129 representatives of 9 countries’ Danube region cities. Eduard Gurvits took part in the Conference on invitation of Vienna Mayor.
