Pelicans in the Danube Delta Romania

Overview
Explore the Danube Delta, Europe’s most significant and best preserved delta, considered a bird’s paradise. The Danube Delta is a delight for bird-watchers, fishers and wildlife lovers. The landscape composed of an intricate network of channels, lakes, marshes dominated by reeds forming floating reed islets is unique. The greatest stretch of reed beds in the world provides resting and breeding places for over 300 species of birds, among which the White Pelican, a true symbol of Danube Delta. Words and pictures can not describe the unique beauty of the Delta, you have to experience it – don’t forget to bring your camera!

The other highlight of the trip, discover Constanta and the atmosphere of this windswept city on the Black Sea coast. Modern day Constanta is the ancient Tomis with a history going back to 600 BC. We will have lunch in the old marina, stroll around its historical center (Old Town) and enjoy the seafront promenade before returning to Bucharest.

Danube Delta is by all means exceptional. Check-out these amazing facts about the Danube Delta!

— The Danube Delta is the second largest delta in Europe, and moreover, the most significant and best preserved of Europe’s deltas.

— The Danube Delta is the only delta in the world designated a Biosphere Reserve, and it is actually the third area in the world in terms of biodiversity, after the Great Reed Barrier and the Galapagos Archipelagos.

— The Danube Delta holds a triple international protection status: it was designated a Biosphere Reserve since 1990, it was recognized as a Wetland of International Importance under the RAMSAR International Convention for Wetlands in 1991, and was listed as UNESCO Cultural and Natural World Heritage in 1991.

VISITING TIME

The best time to visit Danube Delta is considered May and September, as these are the two main migration periods for birds – but the entire summer period is fantastic. Yet, the Danube Delta may be spectacular in winter too. Many birds migrate from Siberia and can only be seen in the Danube Delta, between November and March.
