Close to Tulcea, Constanta and the Danube Delta, Enisala is a former
Roman (then Byzantine and Genoese) fortress.

Overlooking Lake Razim, are the vestiges of the Heracleea citadel
(Cetatea Heracleea)
, built by Genoese merchants in late 13th century, conquered by Sultan Mehmet I in 1417 (who renamed it "o Yeni Sale")
and finally abandoned by the 16th century.

This is Europe's prime birdwatching area (Danube Delta) and you
are likely to spot white-fronted and red-breasted geese, terns,
waders, pelicans, herons and warblers. »»»
