Description

Dobrogea is a very surprising place: a lot of cultural eterogenity, natural miracles and thousands of years of history in an area that at the first glance seems dull. Don't let yourself be fooled by this appearance. This is a 4 hours trip at the border of Danube Delta that will change you mind about this land.

Traditional fishing village

[landmark]

Description

I loved this place because is a representation of the Danube Delta (literally).  As you enter there is the Tulcea Branch that splits into 3 alleys represent the 3 distributary of the Danube: Sfântu Gheorghe, Sulina and Chilia. And on each alley there are houses and yards from villages that are on that branch. A very interesting concept. Also I loved that we could go in the houses where you could feel the temperature difference from outside. Due to the Reed roofs the temperature was really cool and pleasant inside. A few interesting facts about some villages represented here: Periprava: in this remote village was build by the communist and extermination camp destined for those who oppose the communist regime. Here they were tortured and died thousands of Romanians. Chilia Veche: The orthodox Church in this remote village has a height of 52 meters, which makes it the second tallest church in Romania (after Black Church from Brasov). Windmills: 100 years ago there were 639 windmills in Danube Delta. They were used to grind grains and salt. Murighiol: the name of this places comes from turkish words: "moru/mori" which means blue and "ghiol" which means lake.

German Church from Malcoci Northern Dobrogea - from Tulcea to Babadag with a touch of Danube Delta

German Church from Malcoci

[landmark] [church / monastery]

Description

Maybe you wouldn't find anything out of the ordinary from the name of this point, but for me was interesting because I know this was a multicultural land where different ethnicity lived together: Ukrainians, Lipovans, Russians, Romanians, Turks, Hungarians, Gypsies, Hebrews but I never knew there were German people living here. Malcoci was the first German village founded by colonists in Dobrogea in 1843. 100 years later (in 1940) 1102 colonists leave Malcoci and go to Germany. In the village stay only 15 people and the church founded by the German colonists as a reminder of their existence.
