A tour passing through the oldest and newest romanian land
The proposed tour begins with the heart of Moldavia in Iasi and we finish in Tulcea the gateway to the Danube Delta, the youngest Romanian land. But the way up there can give us pleasant surprises if we know how to look. We will cross the Danube to Braila, a city that deserves to be visited. We can admire monasteries such as Cocosu, Celic Dere. We will search for ancient Enisala fortresses, we will be able to stroll through not very tall mountain peaks at present but very old Macin Mountains.

Departing on the Tulcea tour - the gateway to the Danube Delta will be made from Iasi. After 3-3. 5 hours of driving we reach the city of Braila. We will make a well-deserved stop, an occasion with which we will see part of the city, we can eat, drink. We will cross the Danube by ferry, and enter the land of Dobrogea. We will visit the Celic Dere and Cocosu Monasteries-here a short walk to see the surroundings. Towards the evening we reach the city of Tulcea where you can go by car. From here you can take boat trips to the Danube Delta. The next day we will visit the Natural History Museum "Danube Delta" and then we will head to the sea. Soon we will see the ancient city of Enisala, we will visit it, then head for the Macin Mountains, not before having the lunch break. We continue hiking in the oldest mountains in Romania, not exceeding 450m/1450 ft. The rocky, almost serene landscape does not let us go quickly. The evening return to Iasi.
