Must see · World heritage site · Wildlife Area · Nature / Park
Take a boat ride and explore the maze of canals and lakes with floating reed islands on Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve.

You'll also find nearly 300 species of birds here, including Egyptian white pelicans, Arctic geese, pygmy cormorants, and white-tailed eagles. The area includes a few scattered villages on the shores, including Chilia Veche--an ancient Greek settlement and the site of a battle between the forces of Vlad the Impaler and of Mahomed II, the conqueror of Constantinople.

  • Really nice and quiet place, where you can enjoy a simpler life. The delta is full of birds, and you actually can watch them since they are used to people and boats. Of course, they'll leave if you get too close, but they are so many that you'll have many chances to watch them. There are a lot of fishermen around so if you enjoy fishing, you can catch your own dinner. You need permits to enter the area, probably you also need one for fishing - we paid for a boat tour that took care of everything, so I have no info about it, sorry :(
  • A virgin piece of nature, where you can get back to the roots of yourself, throughout the quiet and mysterious waters. The perfect gift for those who want a "Real Holiday" because of the unique experience!
