The Danube Delta (Delta Dunarii), is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is located in the far eastern corner of Romania, at the border with Ukraine. The area is world famous for its saline-marine ecosystems.
The largest town, at the entrance of the delta is Tulcea. In Tulcea, at the river, is a visiting centre for the Delta. From there Tulcea are ferry services into the delta. Sulina and Sfântu Gheorghe are smaller towns, lying at the end of the Danube, at the Black Sea-coast.
Most resorts arrange for a ferry pickup at a prespecified Pier. The pier is abbout an hour drive from Tulcea
The most important boat routes and schedules can be found on this updated website info-delta.ro ( information in Romanian only, however, very easy to understand ).
In 2011 Danube Delta has received the QualityCoast Gold Award for its efforts to become a sustainable tourism destination. Because of this award Danube Delta has been selected for inclusion in the global atlas for sustainable tourism DestiNet.
