This area impresses its visitor with its numerous contrasts, as you can find here Europe’s youngest land – more than 43.7 square meters (47 square yards) being added each year by normal silting action – as well as the oldest mountains of Romania. The delta is a natural stopover for migratory birds, with more than 300 species of migratory and permanent species of birds.
