Danube Delta (Delta Dunarii) is where the longest river in continental Europe – the Danube river – flows after crossing 10 countries. The Danube river flows 1.800 miles (2.900 km) from Germany’s Black Forest to the Black Sea in Romania where it forms the Danube Delta.
The Danube Delta is formed of hundreds of lakes, streams, channels and branches. The Delta is formed around three main channels: Chilia, Sulina and Sfantu Gheorghe (Saint George).
The locals live off fishing and their traditions and cuisine are directly related to it. The people are very simple and hospitable.
The Danube Delta is a habitat for migratory birds and the major remaining wetland on the flyway between central and Eastern Europe, and the Mediterranean and Middle East and Africa. Therefore, it has the largest biodiversity in Europe. Read more on UNESCO World Heritage Center. This uniqueness also attracts hunting. Under different legal schemes, hunters from all over Europe hunt rare birds for a high price.
