The inauguration took place on 31st of May in the presence of the royal family and muslim representatives of Romania.

Mamaia Beach: Mamaia is one of the most popular destinations for a beach holiday in Romania. It is on the Black Sea and is an archetypical seaside resort. There are beaches to relax on, nice food and lots of entertainment, including an amusement park. Faleza Casino: Between 1880 and 1890, we hear of Cazin or Kursal as being a wooden building on the seashore, built on a location a few hundred meters away from the current one. Besides the ballroom, noticeable were the reading hall with French newspapers, a games hall, as well as a terrace. It is here that the tourists, the seamen, and the local elite met in the summer evenings to take part in the balls organised by the city hall on the tunes of the brass bands or on the music of the famous artists of the era. Theatrical performances, soirees, conferences, literary readings or masquerade balls also took place at the Cazin. The games of chess, backgammon, or domino completed the bohemian scenery. Day Two: Danube Delta Tour – we explore by boat the beautiful nature of Danube Delta - Back to Bucharest The waters of the Danube, which flow into the Black Sea, form the largest and best preserved of Europe's deltas. The Danube delta hosts over 300 species of birds as well as 45 freshwater fish species in its numerous lakes and marshes. The 580,000 hectare delta is home to massive amounts of waterbirds of all kinds, most notably pelicans of two species, herons, storks, cormorants and terns. It is a favourite staging area for passage migrants and also wintering grounds for masses of migrating waterbirds from the steppes, the boreal forests and the tundras further north. Here also lie some of Europe’s very few remaining grazed mosaic forest landscapes, the beautiful woodlands of Letea and Caraorman. Beavers are slowly making their return into the area, the area holds healthy populations of golden jackal while white-tailed eagles show a remarkable comeback.

Beautiful discoveries, the visit on the Danube top, Constanta really to discover. The only downside was the choice of the hotel. André is an excellent guide, benevolent, discreet, very attentive. He is also a very good driver, careful and respectful. Which is rare in Romania! We recommend André +++

totally beautiful the 4h boat tour in the Danube Delta

I would recommend this excursion to everyone, because you don't see so many fascinating pelicans, cormorants and herons every day. The romantic passages through the forest are also unforgettable. Water lilies at their best

Delightful guide. A great motorboat. Beautiful nature - a must for every ornithologist. Delicious lunch at a local restaurant in Latea. A pitcher of wine, an unforgettable fish soup, fresh fried fish and donuts. Really worth!

Magnificent and unique experience

A superb discovery of the Danube Delta fauna. A competent and attentive guide. Pick up at the hotel, very pleasant. Fast boat but not very comfortable, No roof, a little rudimentary given the fairly high price.

Great experience for the two of us with lots of birds

We were picked up on time by our guide at the hotel and were able to enjoy an exciting and relaxing day amidst the beauties of the Danube Delta.
