Wildlife Area
Take a boat ride and explore the maze of canals and lakes with floating reed islands on Danube Delta. The region, which also boasts forests, meadows, and sand dunes, is home to wildcats, wolves, foxes, boars, and deer. 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.

  • Amazing place to see. One of the best in Romania. Take your camera and get ready to take some stunning pictures.
  • This is by far the most beautiful place in Romania. Take a small boat to see the birds and animals in the narrow creeks. Everyone should visit this at least once in their lifetime.
  • Wonderful place, but to really appreciate it, do not chose big tourist companies who rush you through the Delta on motor boats. The best way to enjoy the nature and the river itself is with a canoe. Be ready to spend a week in the lakes and channels, packed with birds of all kinds.
  • In my opinion it's a must see thing and it's a 10/10. The only problem is that you need to go during the season and you need a local guide, otherwise you may rate 4 stars
  • The Danube Delta is a very beautiful place, spread over an area of almost 5000 square kilometers. The variety of waterfowl is immense. Delta countless sleeves.
