Explore the miracle world of the Danube Delta and tour Constanta, ancient port city on the Black Sea, on a 2-day private tour
Experience the beauty and serenity of the Danube Delta, Europe's last natural paradise, and the region of Dobruja, steeped in history, one of the most secluded in Romania.
The Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve is a delight for bird-watchers, wildlife lovers and passionate photographers. The intricate network of channels, lakes, marshes dominated by reeds and floating islets creates a unique environment. The greatest stretch of reed beds in the world provides resting and breeding places for over 300 species of birds, among which the Pelican, a true symbol of Danube Delta.
In addition, discover the ruins of the 14th century fortress of Enisala for a feeling of history and lovely panoramic views over the sea and surrounding area, and the ancient city of Constanta, port at the Black Sea.
