At the end of a 2800 km long journey, flowing through several countries across Europe, the Danube empties into the Black Sea forming a largely unspoiled wetland, a real paradise for bird lovers, fishers and seekers of solitude alike. Danube Delta is included on UNESCO’s World Heritage list and is one of Romania’s most fascinating attractions.
