This is one of the most spectacular places I have ever been! Make sure to try to take in the very small town of St. George! Small, poor, but wonderful people. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and rightly so!

The Danube Delta is really an amazing place. It is a little bit quiet at the end of September, but still great (and if you are lucky to have a nice sunny day). We will be back in the summer to enjoy it more.

If you go please take organized boat trip. It is necessary to see the Delta. You can arrive by car to Tulcea and most of trips start there.

While on the boat and sailling inside the Danube Delta, you can see some beautiful panoramas, from the locals that are chaching fish and tend to the nets, to entire families of local fauna. At the shadow of every tree there is a bird species...More
