Danube Delta where Danube river split into 3 channels and spills into Black Sea is a 4187 square km wetland (also partly in territory of Ukraine). This makes a heaven for 300 species of birds and 150 species of fish. National park where every private man has a boat to organize trips.

Along the Romanian Seaside

Romania Likes

So first we visited Saturn, Venus, Jupiter and Neptun… Not so cosmic seaside resorts with hundreds of not the most beautiful hotels. But looks like place to be in the summer – Romanian seaside is not so big and all country has to find his square meter on the sand.

First time stopped by police (not counting night visit of border police during our camping)! I think they were just curious why we are passing by same village four times.

Visiting the moon: Salt Mine in Turda

Romania Likes

In Turda, not far from Cluj-Napoca we visited Salt Mine. Knowing just that it’s big and old – we came downstairs, with Hanna packed in warm clothes. And that was the most surrealistic surprise ever! In the hole after the the bell.shaped salt mine (opened in 1271!) there is an amazing modern playing ground.

The most beautiful border

Ukraine Likes

Our last day of western Ukraine was very green. I have no English words to describe all those sorts of green! We crossed the most beautiful border I have ever seen: between Ukrainian and Romanian mountains, through “our” Tysa river (we met it on our trip to mountains, as a small baby river).
