Lower Dniester National Nature Park

Odessa region

About park

Close your eyes and imagine a kingdom of birds and fish, spreading out all the way to the horizon through the estuary, lakes, reeds and eriks (narrow channels), floodplain meadows and forests, the wide Dniester and the rapid Turunchuk.

 

Emerald in summer and golden-ochre in winter, thickets of reed and bulrush have become home to many species of unique animals. Here, in reeds, fish spawn, wildcats hide, otters and minks hunt, white pelicans and swans, glossy ibis and ducks, waders and cormorants have a rest on the waves of the estuary and lakes, and sea eagles and hen harriers keep watch over the prey from the blue skies. Hundreds of plant species grow in the enchanting floodplain forest, velvet meadows, and on the steep banks.

 

All this is a large delta of the Dniester, protected by the Lower Dniester National Nature Park. When travelling along the trails and routes of the park, remember – the Dniester Delta reveals its secrets with voices, colours and smells to those who respect nature and can patiently wait, see, hear and feel.
