Nature and Outdoors - The Great Plains and the Danube Delta 

Landscape in the Danube Delta

 

 

Ceatal Sf. Gheorghe

 

White Water Lilies in the Danube Delta

 

Nesting Cormorant

         At the far end of the Romanian Plains is the Delta of the Danube, the paradise of birds and ornithologists. The few villages are isolated from the world. Manifold is also the local population - Russians, Ukrainians, Romanians, Tartars and Turks contribute to the ethnic mosaic of the Delta. In this little inhabited region, where fishermen and birds compete against each other, accommodation in fishermen's houses, where nice dishes are prepared from fish and boat-trips through the birds' paradise is what we can offer.

1st Day: Bucharest - Constanţa
Individual arrival on the Otopeni airport in Bucharest. Our guide shall meet and greet you right after the luggage claim at the airport. After a short drive, we shall reach Bucharest, Romania's capital city, then transfer to Constanţa, the biggest port in the area. Constanţa is well known since the Greek and Roman antiquity as Tomis. Many legends of the time do connect with it - the cruel Medeea and the Golden Fleece is just one of the stories of the Black Sea and the port of Tomis, while on the other hand, Ovid himself, the Roman peot, was banned to Tomis. Turks and Tatars are only in this area, between the Danube and the Black Sea - a small area, where there are Muslims in Romania and where one can find some of the most important mosques in Romania. Accommodation and dinner in Constanţa.

On an extensive tour of Constanţa we shall find out more of the city's past and present - the biggest Roman Mosaicum has been found here. Drive to Babadag to Murighiol, where there are two salt lakes, whith many birds. In steep banks, on our way, Bee-Eaters have built their nests - mid-June to mid-August we can watch them fly around.
