Faithful waters, Ukraine/Romania

The Danube Delta, located between Romania and Ukraine, hosts a rich cultural heritage. Throughout the centuries, ethnic Bulgarian, Jewish, Russian, Gagauzian, Ukrainian, Romanian, Moldovan and Lipovan communities have found refuge in Europe’s largest remaining natural wetland. Despite nazism, fascism, Stalinism and communism, and the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the communities have preserved their historical, cultural and religious heritage, as well as their languages and traditions.
