Dobruja – this mosaic of cultures and civilisations that left behind grandeur and inestimable values. It is spectacularly surrounded by waters, rich in fortresses and archaeological sites; it is adorned with gorges, mountains and hills; Dobruja is always the perfect choice for a trip.   

This one day trip focuses on three of the most impressive fortresses of Dobruja: Enisala, Argamum, and Histria.


We start our trip in the morning on a special road to Enisala fortress. We pass by the lagoon area Razelm – Sinoie, we admire from a distance Popina island and we visit Enisala fortress. We discover the ruins and we try to decipher a small part of the lives of people that lived on this territory. The tour guide will delight you with the local stories and also with the historical facts mentioned in the archives.    

The road continues to Argamum fortress, a permanent challenger of Histria for the title of the oldest settlement on Romanian territory. It was built on the shore of Razelm lake in a picturesque area and it will reveal to us the oldest Greek tomb in the Black Sea region.

At lunch time, we can take you to a local boarding house in Jurilovca or Lunca to have an authentic local lunch (optional). If you pack your own meal on the trip, we will make a stop for lunch.

We continue the trip to Histria fortress, which is an important ancient settlement, where you will visit the archaeological museum; this is where you will see many various bas-reliefs, an impressive collection of old amphorae and altars and last, but not least, a part of the marble façade of the temple of the great god.   

The road back to Tulcea is nicely bordered by hills, plains and walnut trees.

We can do this trip in any season.
