Postcards from Romania
The Danube Delta
Fishing communities have live in the region for centuries. The Delta's population incorporates large Ukrainian and Lipovan communities. Lipovans are descendants of the Old Believers who left Russia in around 1772 to avoid religious persecutions. Adapting to their watery environment, the Lipovans became skilled fishermen and gardners.
