The Danube delta

The Danube delta is a very special corner of Europe. It's filled with water ways and wetlands. But there are also dunes and forested areas. The delta is largely roadless, and boats in various forms is the common means of transportation. Today the area is a biosphere reserve and you need a "permit" to enter. But human hands certainly have set traces in the delta. For instance, the middle arm of the delta is almost a straight line while Mother Nature had laid out a meandering route.

Tulcea is the gateway to the delta. It sits on the river just after the northernmost of the main arms of the delta has forked off. It offers a nice riverside promenade, but you would mainly come here to spend a night before and after going further into the delta. There are several opportunities to stay in the delta, and I ended up in the farming village of Letea, and that was an experience in itself.
