Journey into wild
Caraorman is one of the many gems you will find in the Danube Delta. It is an old fishermen’s village located on the sandbank between the Sulina and Sfantu Gheorghe channels.
The name is of Turkish origins and it means “Black forest”, due to the vast oak forest nearby. A good portion of it is made of four centuries old trees that leave a dark, unsettling shadow.
Its genesis is similar to the Letea forest, for which both have been declared monuments of nature in 1940 and included into strictly protected areas. It is one of the places in the Danube Delta where people have preserved most of their traditions, cultural heritage and way of living.
