Among all the places that can be visited in the Danube Delta, Mila 23 is a truly special one, being nicknamed the "Venice" of Romania because it reveals to tourist, what it is like to live completely surrounded by water, canals, lakes and large expanses of reeds. The village of Mila 23 is considered the central point of the triangle formed by the three arms of the Danube (Chilia, Sulina and Sf. Gheorghe) and one of the most important starting points in the tourist routes that cross one of the most picturesque areas of the Danube Delta.
