Northern Dobrudgea – Histria – Jurilovca – Danube Delta Biosphere Reservation
Romania is one of the most inciting travel destinations in the world, offering pleasant surprising adventures.
This tour introduces you in the atmosphere of the South Eastern part of Romania.
Named Dobrogea, this region includes 2 counties: Constanta and Tulcea.
The latter is one of this country’s most sensational counties as regards nature and historical heritage.
Wondering why ?
Because it is the gate to the magnificent UNESCO site called Danube Delta Biosphere Reservation.
And since Michelin Green Guide awarded it with 3*, it definitely worth a visit.
DAY 1 – Spectacular landscapes. Rare birds. Traditional villages.
See the largest wind farm in Europe
See (by helicopter or car) the largest onshore wind farm in Romania and in Europe (600 MW capacity).
It surpasses its rival in Scotland (UK) – Whitelee Wind Farm (322 MW).
Lying at only 17 km west from Black Sea shore, it has excellent wind conditions.
It occupies 1,100 hectares of open field, 600 hectares in Fantanele and 500 hectares in Cogealac communes.
The 240 wind turbines have 100 m height, an average 99 m rotor diameter and 2.5 MW rated capacity each.
These represents about 10% of the green energy production of Romania (including large hydroelectric plants).
Fantanele-Cogealac Wind Farm is also the biggest direct foreign investment in Romania (EUR 1.1 bln).
American company Continental Wind Partners (CWP) that first envisioned the project sold it to CEZ Group, the actual owner.
This holds more than 40% of the green certificates market in Romania.
Transelectrica, the national electric power transmission company of Romania, uses the impressive wind farm.
On good weather conditions, prepare for a remarkable panorama over Razim Lake, strong wind and an apart charm of the fortress’ walls if sunshines favors you, not to mention the flora and fauna you can find there.
Otherways, come back on a warmer day !
