Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve

The mighty Danube River flows 1,788 miles from its springs in Germany’s Black Forest to the Black Sea. Just before reaching the sea it forms the second largest and best preserved of Europe's deltas: 2,200 square miles of rivers, canals, marshes, tree-fringed lakes and reed islands. The Danube Delta is a wildlife enthusiast’s (especially a bird watcher’s) paradise

Travelers can spend three or more days exploring its passages, teaming with the highest concentration of bird colonies in all of Europe. The maze of canals bordered by thatch, willows and oaks entangled in lianas, offers the perfect breeding ground for countless species of birds, some of them from as far away as China and Africa. Millions of Egyptian white pelicans arrive here every spring to raise their young, while equal numbers of Arctic geese come here to escape the harsh winters of Northern Europe.




Some intresting facts about Danube Delta:

The Danube River is the most international river on the planet - its course runs across — or forms a part of the borders of several countries: Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Ukraine, and four capitals: Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest and Belgrade.
Formed over a period of more than 10,000 years, the Danube Delta continues to grow due to the 67 million tons of alluvia deposited every year by the Danube River.
The Delta is formed around the three main channels of the Danube, named after their respective ports: Chilia (in the north), Sulina (in the middle), and Sfantu Gheorghe (in the south).
The Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve has the third largest biodiversity in the world (over 5,500 flora and fauna species), exceeded only by the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and the Galapagos Archipelago in Ecuador.
The Danube Delta is home to over 60% of the world’s population of pygmy cormorants (phalacrocorax pygmeus), 50% of red-breasted geese (branta ruficollis) and the largest number of white pelicans (pelecanus onocrotalus) and Dalmatian pelicans (pelecanus crispus) in Europe.
It also is home to the world’s largest reed bed expanse – 625, 000 acres / 240,000 ha.
Some 15,000 people inhabit the Delta area, living in 28 villages and one city (Sulina).
The area was first attested by Herodot of Halicarnas (484 – 425 B.C.).
More then half of the Delta Biosphere Reserve is virtually intact.

O veritabila comoara, pe care sper sa invatam sa o exploatam fara a o distruge.
Foarte adevarat! Exista si un demers/proiect apropo de protejarea Deltei
http://www.salvatidelta.ro ; E vorba despre acele spoturi pe care le mai vedeti pe la televizor cu : "voi ati putea face sex in conditiile astea? nici animalele/pestii/pasarile nu pot. "

Mi se pare funny cum acum vreo cateva saptamani am deschis thread cu poze din Delta si nu s-au obosit decat vreo 200 de oameni sa dea click sa vada un paradis viu al Europei, dar in schimb dupa ce am deschis thread despre gagici (Romanian Hot Girls) a fost invazie de clickuri peste 1000 de viewuri intr-o saptamana... eee asta e viata - asta e si motivul pentru care Libertatea e ziarul nr 1 in Ro ca vanzari ( tzatze + funduri pe prima pagina) na barbatul tot barbat ramane indiferent ca recolteaza porumb sau munceste in fabrica sau ca e profesor universitar, mafiot , intelectual sau om de afaceri

Si ca sa revin la Delta:

How much of time I go from Bucharest to Tulcea?
The motorway is very fast and the traffic is kind of low for a highway. From Slobozia - bridge over Danube -Harsova ( E60 ) the road is ok but it's kind of crowded sometimes and after Harsova you'll take the road to Tulcea DN22A(which I like very much) that is very well maintained (perfect asphalt) and the traffic is very very low ( you will meet 1 car at 2 minutes :) )
So it depends: 2- 2 hours and a half maybe.
If u take the train it will take 3-3 hours and a half to get there from Bucharest

Here's a detailed map about the roads you should follow!

The Danube Delta is the second largest delta in Europe, after the Volga Delta, and is the best preserved on the continent. The greater part of the Danube Delta lies in Romania (Tulcea county), while its northern part, on the left bank of the Chilia arm, is situated in the Ukraine (Odessa Oblast).

The approximate surface is 4152 km², of which 3446 km² are in Romania. If the lagoons of Razim-Sinoe (1015 km² of which 865 km² water surface; situated in the south, but attached to the Danube Delta from geological and ecological perspectives, as well as being the combined territory of the World Heritage Site) are to be added, the considered area of the Danube Delta grows to 5165 km².

Here, these lagoons appear greenish yellow, as do the branches of the river and the sediments spilling from them into the Black Sea. Inland, much of the terrain is used for agriculture, and many rectangular fields can be seen

Premiera internationala - Prima delta navigabila virtual!
De astazi incepand, am activat primele 1000 de panorame navigabile din Delta Dunarii. Panoramele au fost realizate cu sprijinul Institutului National de Cercetare - Dezvoltare pentru Geologie si Geoecologie Marina - GeoEcoMar.

Cu ajutorul acestor panorame, poti sa iti iei o pauza de cateva minute, sa intri in serviciul NORC Street-view, sa te asezi la intrarea in Delta si sa privesti peisajul full-screen.

Navigheaza cu ajutorul sagetilor, exact ca intr-un set de panorame obisnuite sau foloseste harta cu puncte si personajul care iti arata pozitia, ca sa te plimbi pe canalele din delta.

Asa poti sa te bucuri de cateva minute de liniste, chiar daca locuiesti intr-un oras prafuit, galagios si aglomerat.

Exploreaza Delta in larg prin panorama de mai jos si nu uita sa te rotesti pentru a vedea intregul peisaj:

Poti trimite prietenilor tai panorama de mai sus folosind urmatorul panolink:
