Eco Tourism

If you are a nature lover, then you will definitely find a lot of interesting places to visit in the fishing area “Glavnitsa, Slivo pole, Tutrakan”. The largest Bulgarian protected region “Kalimok-Brashlen” is also here. With its marshes, reed beds, flooded forests, wet meadows, sand strips it is a habitat for over 400 species of plants, 60 species of fish, 20 species of reptiles and amphibians, 40 species of mammals, 230 bird species (out of 403 in Bulgaria) and thousands invertebrates.

Furthermore, here you can find the protected area “Complex Aleko-Telika”, which includes the eastern part of Aleko Island and the nearby group of smaller islands, located near the village Sandrovo. The natural habitats on the islands are home for endangered plant and animal species from national and world importance.

The protected area “Malak Preslavets Swamp” is another extremely interesting spot for nature lovers. Unlike the other swamps near the Danube, it does not dry with the receding waters, as it is more lake-like because of the karst springs on the bottom. One of the most interesting plants here is the white water lilly (Nymphaea alba) – a plant with the status of endangered species in the Red Book of Bulgaria. This species forms colonies, which occupy nearly 46 decars of the surface of the swamp and form the largest blooming population in the territory of Bulgaria. It is definitely worth seeing.

Silver leaf lime, spring cyclamen and marsh snowdrop are just part of the rich variety, which can be seen in the region and which offers wonderful conditions for exploration walks in the nature.
