Summary/Abstract: Bearing in mind such initiatives as the Eastern Partnership of the European Union, the acceptance of the so-called Baltic Strategy in June 2009 and, finally, the plan of launching a similar strategy for the states located in the Danube Basin by the end of 2010, it seems obvious that the EU chose a new way of conducting its regional policy. Consequently, the author points out that nowadays it is a regional policy which might be the most important area of activity on which the EU is focused currently. The so-called macro-regional dimension of the EU’s regional policy is perceived as “a new added value” of the European territorial policy. “The Danube Strategy” project, which will be accepted by the Hungarian Presidency in 2011, seems to be the most relevant example to confirm the above-mentioned thesis. Consequently, the article provides a couple of data regarding origin of cooperation of the Danube states and its current state. For that reason the author used mainly original sources published by the official EU’s agencies and bodies.
