Bolgrad ... The beautiful nature that combines various landscapes of wet-lands and Southern-Ukrainian steppe parts, the Yalpug's boundless glassy surface and crystal springs...
Ukrainian Lower Danube Region (LDR) occupies the south-western part of the Odessa Oblast. The region stretches from the point where the last tributary of the Prut River flows into the Danube and down to the Black sea. The Lower Danube Region is a place of the unique nature and original culture. Here is located the Kiliya delta, the youngest and most dynamic section of one of the biggest deltas in the world, - the Danube Delta. Several big freshwater lakes, like necklace pearls, are stretched along the Danube - Lakes Kitay, Kartal, Katlabukh, Kougourluy, Yalpug, Kagul - each of them being picturesque and unique. Large delta territories, the so called “plavni” (wetlands), are boundless thickets of reed - “king of the wetlands”.
Ukrainian delta, a big complex of river arms, channels, lakes, flood-land
woods, forms a mosaic of attractive natural landscapes. The rich flora and
fauna are developing inside this mysterious and unique natural complex.
Danube is the muddiest river in Europe. It carries a huge amount of fertile silt which accumulates in the delta and leads to formation of new islands. The Kiliya delta is continuously growing.
The Lower Danube region has moderate continental climate, short and relatively warm winters and long hot summers. Spring begins at the end of February or at the beginning of March. The average summer monthly temperature here is + 23C. Big reservoirs of coastal salt lakes, considerable wetland areas and vicinity of the Black Sea increase air humidity and create specific micro-climatic conditions in the region.
A cultural mix is peculiar to the region. Historically more than 40 nationalities reside of the banks of the Danube, from Reni and down to Vilkovo. Among them there are Ukrainians, Russians, Moldavians, Bulgarians, Gagauziens, Greeks, Albanians and many others. Variety of traditional songs, dances and local cuisine is a real coloring of the region - something worth experiencing.
