About Danube Delta

The best preserved delta on the continent.

As it flows into the Black Sea, the Danube forms a delta, unanimously regarded as one of the most astounding sites in Europe.

Covering 2.681 square kilometres, the Danube Delta is one of the largest wetland reserves and the largest expanse of reed beds in the world.

Around 50% of its area is temporarily under water, 45% is permanently submerged and only 5% is the genuine dry land that never floods.  There are centuries-old fishing villages on the sandbars, completely cut off from the rest of the world.

The best preserved delta on the continent.
