Letea Sunken Forest is one of the eerie-looking and most original forests in Romania and even worldwide. The Letea forest was formed in successive stages on the sand dunes, which separated the old Danube channels from the Black Sea.
The tree clumps partially submerged in the water are extremely beautiful, and if you are lucky meeting a herd of wild horses on the nearby beaches can be an unforgettable experience.
Letea Sunken Forest is the northernmost tropical forest in Europe and the only oak tree forest in the world growing on a sand bank.
Letea Sunken Forest is an out-of-the-ordinary kind of forest – the only tropical forest in Romania and Europe, 7 species of very rare orchids grow here and white-tailed eagles are nesting here.
