The main axis of the discovery trip was provided by the PUFLENE RESORT, the most celebrated, acclaimed and elegant hotel in the area of Dobrogea and Danube delta.

 

The cruise has started in the Islamic center of  Dobrogea, the city of Babadag and his famous landmark the SAR SALTUK BABA mosque and cultural complex.

 

 

This year diplomatic discovery trip was centered on cultural and historical legacy to be found in the magic land of Dobrogea.

The route of discovery has led the participants along a history charged path from Babadag, a center of Islamic learning in the XIII to XVIII centuries, to Halmyris citadel, a Greek-Roman fortification towards the Enisala fortress, a medieval art monument and center of trade and Italian architecture and Argumum a celtic and greek citadel that towered of the Black Sea region for centuries.

The Danube Delta cruise was carved to unveil the secret trails of the old river, the starting point was at Murighiol port-Saint George channel – Uzlina Lake and Channel- Isac Lake – Letea submerged forest and return via Uzlina and Sulina waterways.

The DISCOVER ROMANIA program is aimed at giving an opportunity for diplomats posted in Romania to get acquainted with new areas of our country, to familiarize themselves with the rich customs and traditions of diverse regions of Romania and to also enjoy themselves in a few days of active relaxation.

Accordingly to the strict rules of the program, the invitation is a very sought after and distributed with parsimony , being invited only does diplomats who remark themselves during the year by cooperating closely with The Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation.

This year our main destination and that of the ambassadors and their families, invited for the cruise, was Danube Delta, tell us Professor Dr. Anton Caragea, the President Director General of The Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation and we have many reasons for our decision to select Danube Delta as our destination.

PUFLENE RESORT-vedere aeriana

The magic of Danube Delta and PUFLENE RESORT

We have previously organized a similar discovery trip during 2011 and more recently in 2016 and I was remembering, with pleasure, the enthusiasm that ambassadors put in the discovery of the area and we want also to place in our program new and new destinations of Danube Delta.

To add to this arguments was the recent July 2017 economic promotion tour of Dobrogea that our institution had organized and was crowned with an impressive success and echo in the economic environment and we wanted to build on this success and complete the image of Dobrogea not only as a center of economic activity but also as an instrumental part of cultural and historical legacy of today`s Romania announced IRICE President Professor Dr. Anton Caragea.

Murighiol Cathedral dedicated to Saints and Martyrs: Epictet and Astion.

 

Another argument weight in was the opening of an extraordinary resort and hospitality complex in the area: PUFLENE RESORT.

This resort was to become the gravity center of our activities, to discover Danube Delta, and also our night base for a wonderful meal and recuperation after travel.

Argamum citadel: the main center of trade and culture in the Black Sea region until V century AC.

 

The diplomats program was coined, with the help of PUFENE RESORT Director, Mr Mihai Puflene, a man in loved with the Danube and passionate about Danube Delta.

Ghidul Diplomatilor prin DeltaThe program encompassed, during day time, regular trips, that allowed diplomats to discover magnificent areas like: Murighiol Danube front, the lake Uzlina, the largest lake and a perfect fish reserve, the boats rolled also to the Lake Isac and Lake Isac 2, natural reserve of mangrove and typical vegetation, Litcov Channel and famous Crisan village, bedecked with traditional houses painted in blue and home to Russian minority in the Danube Delta.

Diplomats also enjoyed the trips to Sulina arm of Danube and finally, to the Letea Forest, UNESCO natural preserve, unique in the world.

 

The centers of culture and history of Argamum and Halmyris (Murighiol) had proven the continuity and the resilience of Romanian`s in this region and elicited surprise to the diplomats which learned about Dobrogea history in the late antiquity.

The religious centers dedicated to Islamic scholars in Babadag and the world-famous basilica of Murighiol dedicated to the first martyrs of christian faith moved the diplomats and charged them with spirituality.

 Enisala fortress (general view) controlled in the medieval times the trade along Black Sea region and the Genovese sailors used it as a center of commerce and discovery (XII century).

    Halmyris -Murighiol: a Greek and Roman citadel and fortification and the heart of Early Latin Christianity.

 

 

The four days journey of discovery and travel where crowned also by relaxation time.

 Ambassadors took full advantage of this time enjoying the PUFLENE RESORT many facilities like gym, wading pool and massage therapy and most of all, indulge in the culinary creation of the master chef of the complex.

The imperial recipes of old day`s are alive and well under the care of PUFLENE RESORT famous chefs.

For diplomats the stuffed pike was recreated. 

 

Mr. Mihai Puflene carved out a culinary discovery menu, including the fish broth, carp brine and the incredible stuffed pike.

 

Mr. Mihai Puflene the Manager of PUFLENE RESORT complex receives the OFFICIAL DIPLOMATIC PARTNER OF IRICE status from Professor Dr. Anton Caragea, IRICE President, in recognition of the perfect care and professionalism in managing diplomat`s trips.

Professor Dr. Anton Caragea surrounded with love and respect by the students and professors of Agricultural High School-future agricultural specialists of Romania.

 

The declaration read in part that:

Today 2016 Agricultural and Food Exhibition is devoted to provide the image of the enormous potential and the endless possibilities of family farming in providing food security, development opportunities and a better future for collectivities across the world.(…) international food organizations are emphasizing the family farming as the core on which our future food and nutrition security pivots.

This is even more real in Romania`s case where 85% of the agriculture output comes from family farming and in our declining economy only the agriculture is the main center of our financial resilience.

When we are looking at this plenitude of food and richness of agricultural produces we must remember that food insecurity is still a plague for more than 1 billion people’s and the achievement of Zero Hunger Goal is still far a way as we have registered a number of 805 million food insecure people’s and 162 million chronically malnourished children.

 

Our efforts as World Ambassador and our activities in the Parliamentary Assembly for Sustainable Development Goals are directed to doing just that.

Our High Office will continue partnering with the private sector, civil society, all our UN partners, the governments where we serve, but most importantly with the people.

After the exhibition being declared officially opened the delegates toured the exhibition and made the first lay over at the place chosen by Senator Ionel Agrigoroaei, the stand of Casa Panciu (House of Panciu) the creator of Romanian Diplomatic Wine for 2016.
