Păsărica Islet on Danube

Păsărica Islet on Danube












On river's lenght between Romania and Bulgaria (469 km) there are almost 200 islets shared between the two countries, many of them protected areas, some even Ramsar sites.

Păsărica is a smaller islet upstream of city of Giurgiu, which together with other two islets downstream (Cama and Dinu) is a protected area because of the many bird species nesttling here.

Păsărica is a mostly sandy islet, while most of the others islets on Romanian Danube are forested.

The Romanian bank of the river is almost an uninterrupted strip of forests some hundreds of meters wide and toward 1,000 km long, which in spring gets flooded, making an ideal habitat for birds and other animals.

Podul Înalt monument, Vaslui County, Moldavia

Podul Înalt monument, Vaslui County, Moldavia











The complex of the mounted statue of Stephen the Great and the stairs in front of it were inaugurated in 1975, 500 years after the Battle of Vaslui (or Battle of Podul Înalt), one of the greatest in the history of Europe.



The Battle of Vaslui was fought on January 10, 1475 between Stephen III of Moldavia and the Ottoman Beylerbey of Rumelia, Hadân Suleiman Pasha. The Ottoman troops numbered up to 120,000, facing about 40,000 Moldavian troops, plus smaller numbers of allied and mercenary troops. Stephen inflicted a decisive defeat on the Ottomans, described as "the greatest ever secured by the Cross against Islam," with casualties, according to Venetian and Polish records, reaching beyond 40,000 on the Ottoman side.

Făgăraș Mountains











Buda Valley, going along one of the ~40 main rivers on the southern side.

Făgăraș are so big that crossing them from north to south takes between 5 and 8 or more days of constant hiking on easy routes (blazed trails and forestry roads), the southern side being 20 - 40 km wide and the northern side 5 - 10 km wide.

Bicaz Gorges

Thank you Hugo! Romania has a smaller percentage of protected area (1,3%) compared with other European countries, although its natural environment is much more valuable. In other countries, ranges like Făgăraş would be protected for most of their extent (and so would be many if not most other ranges, because of the good preservation of their habitats), yet, except few small reserves, they're not. Maybe in future.

Lake Razelm, Dobruja

Lake Razelm, Dobruja




Largest lake in Romania, part of Danube Delta Biosphere.

Is in fact the name of a complex of lagoons,some with fresh water (the northern ones), some salty (the southern ones):

-The proper Lake Razelm, 415 km˛, maximum depth is 2,80 m, fresh water.
-Lake Golovița, 119 km˛, fresh water.
-Lake Zmeica, 54 km˛, salty water.
-Lake Sinoe, 171 km˛, salty water.




Cape Doloșman and the ruins of Argamum - in Antiquity, this was a marine gulf and Argamum was a Greek colony, then a Roman town in what was considered back then the farthest and most dangerous area of the empire, near the border with the endless territories of the Barbarians. The ancient city was situated on a high promontory offering the best views over the lagoon complex, the cape separating Razelm and Golovița lakes.
