The Danube Delta is the second biggest delta in Europe and the best preserved on the continent with an approximate surface of 5,165 km². This includes both the Romanian and the Ukrainian part of the delta, as well as the UNESCO world heritage site where 23 natural ecosystems measuring 2,733 km² are strictly protected.
It’s a unique exotic land in Europe, with over 1,200 species of trees and plants and the largest fauna (over 300 species of birds) of the continent. It’s also heaven for for fishermen with more than 45 freshwater fish species; you can catch the Danube herring, or sturgeons which are renowned for their expensive caviar.
Enough talking, because we have 23 great images that will speak for themselves.
