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).
