ENISALA, ROMANIA

ENISALA, ROMANIA

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. »»»
