Rivers are beauties of nature, rushing among meadows and pastures, mountains and forests.
Aside from serving as important sources of hydroelectric power and irrigation, the rivers of Romania are perfect locations for camping, fishing, canoeing, or just immersing in nature. Because as the saying goes: Man’s heart away from nature becomes hard.
Most rivers spring from the Carpathian Mountains and are collected by the Danube, which flows along 1075 km, or 670 miles, forming almost the entire southern boundary of the country and ending with the Delta, a haven for local and migratory birds, such as the pelicans below.
Here is a short list of said rivers, following the Danube (first picture above):
The Olt, the longest flowing exclusively through Romania.The Somes, one of the most important in Transylvania as it has two headstreams. The Arges, one I am familiar with and spent many days camping by. The Mures, largest after the Danube, brings to mind this quote: How strange that Nature does not knock, and yet does not intrude. ~ Emily Dickinson. ~~~
Thank you so much for reading and the comments. I appreciate each and every one. I hope you’ll return tomorrow, and allow me to introduce you to Romanian singers.
