The Letea Forest is a natural protected area since 1938, where nature creates an amazingly different kind of landscape: sand dunes, trees and climbing plants of all kinds. Often referred to as the “Delta’s Jungle”, it is considered by experts as one of the most exciting natural environments in Eastern Europe.
Prepare to see long liana plants, whose lengths can reach even 25 meters and wild vines. Equally strange is another aspect: many of the oaks have twisted branches like a pretzel, tangled and turned, creating a magical realm.
More magical is the fact that Letea forest is home for 2,500 wild horses, which makes it one of the very few areas in Europe where horses still live in the wilderness.
Caraorman forest is located on the southern side of the Sulina branch (close to the Sfântu Gheorghe branch), covering an area of 2,245 hectares. Tourists who visit it will see the impressive sand dunes, up to 10 meters tall. There are old oaks, over 30 meters high, and the star is a 400-year-old protected oak. Caraorman forest is a heaven for bird watchers, as it is one of the best places to spot the white-tale eagles flying over their nests.

The old lighthouse of Sulina is a trademark for the former glory of this town.
On the outskirts of Sulina, the Cosmopolitan cemetery hosts the tomb of the only Romanian pirate and is a proof and of the tumultuous and legendary life of the old city. Sailors from around the world are buried here and each of them has a story to tell.
Gura Portitei remains untouched and unchanged. This thin stripe of sand stretching between the Black Sea and Golovita Lake in the Danube Delta, was originally a fishing village which turned into a resort dedicated to those who want to discover this beautiful wild and virgin place.
