WILD BUT PRESERVED DANUBE DELTA

4 Days Nature & Landscape Photography Workshop in Danube

Danube Delta is chosen “The Landscape of the Year 2007-2009″ and since 1996 it is in Unesco’s World Heritage List and known as Europe’s best preserved delta.

Life between river and sea, bearing the imprint of many cultures. The Danube Delta is situated in the borderland of Romania and the Ukraine, a tiny part extending into Moldova. %80 of its vast area of more than 5,000 square kilometers is situated in Romania. The region is a nature paradise in the truest sense of the term, and has no equal worldwide: It is Europe’s most extensive wetland and home to 5,400 animal and plant species, including such rare migratory birds as the Dalmatian Pelican – which is the delta’s figurehead. It is also known for its wealth of fish – with the sturgeon as the “showpiece” – and it boasts the largest unbroken expanse of common reed (1,800 km2).

The delta is not merely rich in animals and boasting a magnificent flora, it is also known for its cultural diversity. For thousands of years it has been a place of settlement, passage and refuge. With as few as 15,000 inhabitants, the delta is sparsely populated, but the people who live there in peaceful coexistence trace their origins to many different cultures and ethnicities.
