The last 1,075 km of the Danube, which is the second longest river in Europe, are on Romanian territory. It discharges, through the Danube Delta, into the Black Sea. The layout of the Danube river crosses 10 countries (Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldavian Republic, Ukraine) and 4 capital cities: Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest, Belgrade.
The Danube Delta is the largest and best preserved of the European deltas. It has been in the world patrimony of UNESCO since 1991, as reservation of the biosphere. Parallel 45 passes through here, marking the half of the distance between the Equator and the North Pole.
The Danube Delta is a true heaven of birds. Here is also the richest and most varied ornithological fauna of Europe, with over 300 species of birds, some of them being declared natural monuments and being protected by law. Here there is also the largest community of pelicans of Europe.
