Danube Delta Holidays

Unlike other places in Romania, the Danube Delta is where you can pick all sorts of vacations. As it is a special ecosystem, the Danube Delta wildlife has been preserved, and there are few inhabited areas. In fact, a lot of vacation resorts are located on dry land, except for floating hotels or a Danube Delta cruise. Chilia, Sulina and Sfântul Gheorghe are the main three branches of the Danube river that form the delta. Likewise, each of them has a harbor town where you can set a camp and start your Danube Delta Holidays.
