„Its isolation has helped it to become one of the most biodiverse nature reserves in Europe. ”
This former landfill was once a key element of Ceaușescu’s obsessive plan to connect Bucharest to the Danube river. That's why there are five meter high embankments around it. Over time, its isolation has helped it to become one of the most biodiverse nature reserves in Europe. Venture inside and you'll find proof of nature's resilience in the form of this wetland, which has over 100 species of birds, tons of fish and even protected species like turtles, weasels and otters. It’s a great reminder of what Earth has in plan once it gets rid of us.
