Breakfast: At the hotel
You will take a day tour to one of the oldest human settlements in Romania by following the Sulina Canal. The port of Sulina was mentioned for the first time more than 1,000 years ago under the name of Selina, and it the easternmost town in Romania. Rowing down the Sulina canal will reveal countless species of birds, water snakes, and fish.
In Sulina, you will visit the most important landmarks of the village: the old churches, the 55 feet tall lighthouse located in the middle of the town, the museum inside the lighthouse, and the St. Alexander and St. Nicholas Cathedral, an important tourist attraction that was built over 62 years, between 1910 and 1982. It was built to celebrate Dobruja's liberation from the Turkish occupation through the Romanian War of Independence.
You will enjoy a delicious lunch at a local guest house on the shore of the Danube Delta, and then you will take a bus trip to the nearby beach.
Lunch: At your expense
Here, you will have a few hours at your disposal, so you can swim in the Black Sea, discover the local wildlife, or take a stroll along the beach.
Upon request, you can take a relaxing walk through the beautiful Sulina cemetery, and then reunite with the rest of the group on the beach.
Exploring the Danube Delta will inevitably reveal the extraordinary diversity of birds. Even if the large colonies of birds are in the protected areas, you will see pelicans, cormorants, egrets, and even eagles. A particularity of the birds leaving in the Danube Delta is that the birds go on laying eggs in alien nests because a great part of the aquatic-species nests are flooded.
You will then take a boat back to the local guesthouse where we will spend the night.
Overnight in Mila 23.
