- Local residents ice skate and play ice hockey on the Danube in Austria, Vienna
- In early January, freezing temperatures see the Danube in Budapest start to ice over
Cecille Apolinares, who has lived in the capital for 17 years, captured people playing ice hockey
on the river. She told CNN: "The weather for this month is always negative. It's colder than the previous years. It was snowing last week but this week no snow & no rain."
Earlier in the month in Budapest, Hungary, the Danube river began to freeze over, leaving the surface covered in patches of ice.
"It was amazing to see the icy Danube River. I don't know how often this happens but I felt lucky to see it," Instagram user Erkan Kutlu
told CNN from Budapest.
