Day 3 : Danube Delta to Sulina


The way to Sulina, one of the oldest human settlements in Romania is by the Danube River, on the Sulina Branch.  This port town was mentioned for the first time more than 1000 years ago under the name of Selina and it is the most eastern point of Romania.  We travel by boat for about an hour, an hour and a half, and stop in the city’s touristic port. We visit the most important sights, the old churches, the 55-foot-tall lighthouse located in the middle of town and its museum, as well as the 19th century Greek Church St. Nicholas and Alexander Cathedral, a cathedral built in the memory of Dobrogea’s liberation from the Turkish occupancy.

We will have a good lunch at a local pension on the Danube shore and then we will travel by bus to the beach. If requested, you can leisure at the famous cemetery of Sulina and then reunite with the rest of the group on the beach.

You will have 3-4 hours to relax and swim in the sea (depending on temperature and water) or enjoy a stroll along the beach then go back to the boat and head to the guest house.

Day 4 : Day trip to Letea Village and Letea Forest


After breakfast, we will visit Letea Forest and Letea Village. We will travel to Letea Village by boat, and from there we will travel to Letea Forest by car.

Letea is a beautiful village with many traditional houses built with wood, clay, and thatched roofs, painted in traditional colors. We will leave the boat and take a safari car for the trip to Letea Forest, the northernmost subtropical forest in Europe. We will see the world’s only oak forest on salty sand, lianas, a subtropical flora that cannot be found elsewhere in Romania and the famous wild horses.

Upon returning from the forest we will walk a few steps through the village to see or photograph the traditional houses that still stand in this corner forgotten by the world, talk to people and eat fruits from local trees.

Lunch will be served back at the guesthouse and then we will proceed with another trip in order to see the sunset.
