I have been dreaming of visiting this magnificent area for a long time. Today I had the chance and we all loved it, even my 6 year old daughter and my 70 year old father in law. Through our hotel we booked a 10 seat slow boat for a 6 hours trip , lunch included at a fisherman cottage, for... More

Sulina is a combination of modern and savage:) You can see where the Danube is flowing into the Black Sea. There you can see why the Black Sea is named like this. Lovely, lovely, lovely

The Danube Delta is a haven for wildlife. The water birds abound and the views of the iconic White Tailed Sea eagle are impressive, just flying overhead. We saw lots of butterflies and dragonflies whilst on our floating hotel or in the smaller boat which could get up the smaller channels. There are also mammals such as the otter and... More

A journey in the wilderness of the Danube Delta is a must for every nature lover! I only hope my nephews (if there will be any) may see it too...

Really enjoyed our stay in the Delta Danube. There were so many splendid birds to watch in the water and in the air. Our boatman pointed out birds and animals that we would not have noticed ourselves. Traveling through the diverse waterscapes was mind-boggling. Can't remember ever experiencing such glorious boat trips. Can't recommend this place enough. We brought insect... More

In May I spent several days in Tulcea, Romania, in the Danube Delta. Tulcea is a small town that is only accessible by boat, and yet has a number of small guest houses, simple hotels and resorts. If you are interested in a place that is off the beaten path and embedded in nature, I would highly recommend the Danube... More

When I went to the Danube Delta in the second week of May, there were barely any tourists there. Also there were NO mosquitoes! Sadly, because of the lack of tourists, I could only make one "short" 5 hour boat trip into the delta, but it was still very nice and I saw a lot of birds. I used Safca... More
