Reni is a district town located at the distance of 127 km from the Black Sea up the Danube. The ancient written sources tell us about the origin of name ren. During a military campaign of Kiev Prince Svyatoslav against Byzantium (IXth century AD), Russian warriors crossed the river here, and the word ren itself meant, in one of the Slavic dialects, a place for river crossing. Later a small fishermens village was founded here, which then developed into a small town called Reni.

 

The first historical record about Reni dates back to 1548. At that time Reni was part of Moldavian Principality. Starting from the end of the XVIth century Reni began to play an important role in the economy of the region as a commercial port. Grain and cattle were exported to Turkey and some other countries via the port of Reni.

 

Reni, being a strategic and economic center of Moldova, had been the object of continuous fight with Turkey. Many times the town would be taken by storm from hand to hand. It was only after the Russian-Turkish war of 1877-1878 that Reni became part of Russia.

 

Most picturesque Lower Danube lakes are scattered around Reni - the lakes of Kagul, Kartal, Kougourlui and Yalpug. This is the only district in Odessa region half the territory of which is covered with glassy surface of the lakes. Flora and fauna of this area is rich and extremely versatile. A lot of waterfowl find here food and shelter; you could watch the birds while taking a boat trip. A wonderful fishing adventure is awaiting those who are keen on angling. 

 

Reni district is a multinational area where Bulgarians, Gagauziens, Moldovans, Russians, Ukrainians and some other nationalities live side by side. They preserve their national traditions and culture, each enriching the region with specific cultural peculiarities.
