Visiting Attractions or What Kids Can Do in Danube Delta

One of the ancient cities of Romania is Tulcea. It is usually the starting point for the Danube Delta Romania holidays. Tulcea is an old city once conquered by the Romans and the Ottomans. Therefore, a visit with your kids at the history or the ethnography museums in Tulcea might be an opportunity for them to learn about the humans of the Danube Delta.

Also, if your kids have never been to an Aquarium before, a trip to the Eco-touristic Museum Center would impress them for sure.

A couple of summer film festivals in the Danube Delta have already made history. Both of them are family friendly. One of them is based inland in Tulcea city. It has open-air screenings on the shore of Lake Ciuperca. The other one is based in Sfântul Gheorghe village in a camping site with 4-star cabins.

The former, called Pelicam, opens its eighth edition on June 21st a and closes it on June 24th this year.

The later, called Anonimul (The Anonymous) starts projections from August 6th until August 12th, 2018. This international film festival provides an opportunity to bring your kids to a special beach. It is situated at the point where the Danube River starts spilling into the Black Sea in Sfântul Gheorghe. This fantastic beach is a must in Danube Delta. One can also try to look after some Danube Delta cruise options to better see this place.

The Village Life with Kids in Danube Delta Romania

Located between the Sulina and Chilia Danube branches, Letea is a fairytale village. Letea is surrounded by subtropical forest. Its population is of Ukrainian origin. But the other two neighboring villages, C.A. Rosetti and Sfiștofca, have Romanians and Russian Lipovans as inhabitants. If you decide to embark on a trip to this location, you and your children will never forget the magical experience.

However, there are a few precautions to take. Here is a list with them: first aid kit, mosquito repellant, local Orange sim cards for unlocked phones. There are periods of the year with many mosquitos and this can be dangerous for the kids. That is why it is good to know when is the best time to visit Danube Delta. You must also know that special precaution must be taken in the case you are camping in the Danube Delta.

In case you need to communicate by phone, there is only one network in the area. In the village, you will not find Internet access. This is fortunate for those who wish to disconnect from daily urban life. Luckily you will be able to easily find Romanian guides through the Danube Delta villages online or in Tulcea.
