The Danube Delta was recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991. The Biosphere Reserve of the Danube Delta is shared between Ukraine and neighboring Romania. It is the second biggest delta in Europe and is the best preserved one on the continent. This “youngest” in Europe land is a benevolent place for developing highly diverse and rare flora and fauna. The Danube Delta is of a particular interest to birdwatchers since it is a stop-over and breeding place for 312 bird species. Delta boasts sturgeon population among other 90 fish species. The monk seal, the European mink, the wildcat and the freshwater otter is a short list of rare and vanishing animals for which the Danube Delta has become a home.
We got back from our holiday yesterday. It was really nice and interesting. Thank you very much for the organization and also for your quick help in Odessa. Everything worked out fine. Regarding the hotels and the trains we were very pleased. Maybe one thing could be changed: In Odessa and in Yalta we would have preferred a more centrally located hotel (e.g. Hotel Bristol in Yalta). The hotel in Kiew was just perfect.
Thanks again. We will recommend you to anyone wishing to travel to the Ukraine.
