About Tulcea

A bustling port town on the Danube River, Tulcea is popular for boating trips and ferry excursions to Delta towns and attractions. Explore museums related to the Delta ecosystem and admire folk art and ethnographic collections from merging cultures.

Things to do

Eco-travel takes centre stage at the Central Eco-Tourism Museum of the Danube Delta. It boasts an aquarium with aquatic and nature exhibits focusing on the flora, fauna and river intricacies of the Danube Delta, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. At the Folk Art & Ethnographic Museum, you can explore merging cultures over the centuries with artefacts from Russian, Ukrainian and Bulgarian influence.

Explore the Danube on tailored group charters with local guides. Sign up for a birdwatching tour to see pelicans, swans, red-breasted geese and cormorant colonies at Lake Purcelu and Carasul or enjoy the surrounding scenery from a catamaran, speedboat, kayak, canoe or pontoon.

Fish is featured on most menus in Tulcea, including Ivan Pescar in the port area. You can enjoy fish cooked into stews and soups or grilled with spices. To try the local Tulcea speciality of tochitura dobrogean spiced meats, dine at Restaurant Select.

Nightlife on the waterfront comes alive at Cheers Pub, a gathering spot for working fishermen, outdoor adventurers and backpackers. If you’d like to sample Skol wheat beer, head over to Istru bar.
