The Danube Delta (Delta Dunării), included on Unesco’s World Heritage list, is one of Romania’s leading tourist attractions.
At Tulcea, the river splits into three separate channels: the Chilia, Sulina and Sfântu Gheorghe arms, creating a constantly evolving 4187-sq-km wetland of marshes, floating reed islets and sandbars.
The region provides sanctuary for 300 species of bird and 160 species of fish. Reed marshes cover 156,300 hectares, constituting one of the largest single expanses of reed beds in the world. The delta is a heaven for wildlife lovers, birdwatchers, fishers and anyone wanting to get away from the daily routine for a few days.
