Srebarna lake

Located near the Danube river, 16 km west of the town of Silistra, Srebarna is a fresh-water lake extending over an area of 600 hectares that has been declared a biospheric reserve.
About 100 different kinds of migratory birds nest here, including some endangered ones like the Dalmatian pelican, the mute swan, the Graylag Goose, the Marsh Harrier, the Bluethroat, herons and cormorants. About 21 species of amphibians and reptiles live in the wetland. Special monitors have been installed among the thick reeds for undisturbed wildlife observation.
