The Danube Delta was recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991. The Biosphere Reserve of the Danube Delta is shared between Ukraine and neighboring Romania. It is the second biggest delta in Europe and is the best preserved one on the continent.
On the Ankudinov Island there is a monument of the Zero Kilometer Mark which symbolically flags the mouth of the Danube River on the Ukrainian territory. And though the actual Kilometre Zero belongs to Romania the place has become really popular among tourists.
A small town of Vilkovo was founded in 1746 by Lipovans, the descendants of the Old Rite followers. Vilkovo is quite a peculiar town, hidden in the reeds on the flood land, with the streets – channels and boats instead of cars.
I am now back from Ukraine and I want to thank you for the excellent arrangements - everything worked perfectly, including the train tickets being at the hotel at Kaminets Podilsky when I arrived.
As I say, it worked splendidly - many thanks.
