The Danube Delta is exotic, mysterious and wild.
This is a place like no other in the world, which always has something new to discover.
The Danube Delta is perhaps the most beautiful and famous natural reservation in Europe, which has become the natural reserve of the Biosphere since 1991.
With an area of approximately 4180 km2, the Danube Delta covers mostly the Dobrogea region of Romania (82%) and partly Ukraine, being the second largest (after the Volga River delta) but also the best preserved of the European deltas.
The Delta has become a biosphere reserve because here nature has withstood the harmful action of man and has preserved the landscape and the biological diversity it holds.
In the Danube Delta we find over 1830 species of trees and plants, 2440 species of insects, 91 species of mollusks, 11 species of reptiles, 10 amphibian species, 320 species of birds and 44 mammalian species, many of these being declared unique species and monuments of nature.
The flora of the Delta occupies 78% of the total area and is predominantly represented by vegetation specific to wetlands (reed, sedge, rush, dwarf shay).
Did you know that the area of the Danube Delta increases annually by about 40 square meters?
Also, did you know that the Danube Delta has the lowest population density in Romania, a resident per 30 hectares?
