Travel Journal: The Danube Delta ☀️

As I mentioned in my previous post, I had the opportunity to go visit the Danube Delta while being home, in Romania. I’ve been to the Delta before when I was very young and I wanted to experience this amazing place again, this time being able to share it with you as well! Because what would a great experience be if you can’t share it? 🙂

According to Wikipedia, “The Danube Delta is the second largest river delta in Europe, after the Volga Delta, and is the best preserved on the continent.” The flora and fauna here are amazing; there are over 320 species of birds found in the delta during summer and over one million individual birds (swans, egrets, pelicans, among others), as well as 45 freshwater fish species in its numerous lakes and marshes. We rented a boat and went to explore this gorgeous area for a full day, although, that wasn’t even half of what Delta has to offer! We encountered so many birds, and the whole atmosphere was so peaceful and serene that it seemed like another world! I was able to capture some of these scenes in these photos, although it was hard to choose just a few to share with you!

The Danube splits into three main branches into the delta: Chilia, Sulina, and Sfântul Gheorghe (Saint George), all of which flow into the Black Sea. We traveled along Sulina to where the river meets the sea, then spent some time on the Black Sea as well. There, to our surprise (and to the captain’s), we saw some dolphins jumping in the water and we were all so amazed and awed by the moment!

The Danube stretches into different arms, both running and stagnant water, and this includes the lakes, various ponds, streams, and channels. We took one of these channels and that’s where the magic happened! So many birds, fish, plants and stunning scenes on display in front of our eyes! The images should speak for themselves! I loved the abandoned shed we found on the river, as well as the water lily pond

One of my favorite moments was seeing the swan family – so much grace and beauty! Also, the reflection of the sky on the lake was stunning; it looked like a perfect mirror. The last two photos were captured in the yard at the villa we stayed in, and I took advantage, one more time, of the beautiful surroundings!

If any of the scenes above made you wonder about the Danube Delta, trust me, what you’d discover in person would be a much more fulfilling experience!
