Danube Delta
explore the biggest wetland in Europe

The Danube is the second longest rivers of Europe and the most international one in the world. It flows from west to east passing no less that ten countries: Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova, Ukraine, and three capitals: Vienna, Bratislava and Belgrade.

At the meet point with the Black Sea this mighty river forms the Danube Delta, the largest wetland in Europe. Because of the huge number of species of plants and animals that live here, more than 5,000, the Delta has one of the greatest biodiversity in the world, standing near the Great Coral Reef or the Amazon Forest. This is a wildlife paradise, especially for birdwatchers or nature photographers.
In the Danube Delta there is the largest reedbed expanse in the world and the total number of birds that can be seen here is exceeding 300 species, more that half of the total number of species of the entire continent. Among them it points out Europe's largest population of white pelican, 60% of the world population of pygmy cormorant and 50% of the world population of red-breasted geese.
List of birds may be supplemented with herons, egrets, spoonbills, many species of ducks and waders. You can find also a lot of raptors, from the smallest hawks to the spectacular peregrine falcon and the mighty white-tailed eagle. Depending on the season and the water level, the abundance of birds can vary; however, in any period of the year there are enough interesting species to satisfy any photographer or birdwatcher.
Although in the Danube Delta live approximately 15,000 people of different ethnicities, 50% of its surface is still untouched, forming one of the most important nature reserves in Europe. The Danube Delta is included in the Unesco World Heritage, is a Biosphere Reserve and is on the WWF list of the most important 200 ecoregions in the world.
