Danube Delta, Romania’s Richness

It is a pity to go to Romania and visit it without ‘passing by’ the Danube Delta, a paradisiac area, that few countries in the world feel fortunate to have. The Danube springs in Germany’s Black Forest and flows through 10 countries Germany , Austria , Slovakia , Hungary, Croatia , Serbia , Bulgaria , Romania , Moldova and Ukraine. It is situated in the eastern part of Romania, next to the Black Sea and it is divided into three arms: Chilia, Sulina and Sfantu Gheorghe (St. George). Its territory hosts approximately 15,000 people, which occupy themselves mostly with fishing, sheep and cattle breeding.

Before reaching the sea, the Danube Delta forms the second largest and best preserved of Europe’s deltas: 2,200 square miles of rivers, canals and marshes. But what is basically this Danube Delta? First of all, it is the only delta in the world which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It has a surface of 2239 mi², which is 2,5 % of Romania ’s surface and it is the third delta after Volga’s and Kuban. It can be considered a natural open-air museum with 30 types of ecosystems 325 species of birds, 1689 flora species and 3448 fauna species among which mollusk – 86 species , insects – 2219 species , fishes – 125 species. It was formed over a period of more than 10,000 years and cotinues to grow due to the 67 million tons of alluvia deposited every year by the Danube River.
