The Greatest Biodiversity in Europe

The Danube Delta in Romania remains one of the best-kept secrets in Europe. The mighty Danube River flows 1,788 miles from its springs in Germany’s Black Forest to the Black Sea. Just before reaching the Black Sea, it forms the second largest and best-preserved of Europe’s deltas and with 2,200 square miles of rivers, canals, marshes, tree-fringed lakes and reed islands it really is a nature lover’s paradise! Altogether, 3,450 animal species can be seen here as well as 1,700 plant species making it the greatest biodiversity in Europe.
