Silistra Region

Silistra is situated in the northeastern part of Bulgaria, bordering Romania. The territory of the region includes parts of the Danube Plain, Dobrudzha and Ludogorie. The rivers in the region are small and most often dry in the summer.
The economic and cultural development of the region is strongly influenced by the Romanian occupation of Southern Dobrudzha. Between 1913 and 1940 the city of Silistra is part of Romania. This determines the strong economic and cultural influence of the northern neighbor in this area. Agriculture is heavily developed, mainly as cereal and technical crops.
Natural and historical landmarks in the area boost cultural, ecological, rural and hunting tourism. The greatest attention in the region attracts the Srebarna Reserve, which is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
