Delta Rowmania ETU Triathlon Junior European Cup – a spectacular race on a beautiful course which goes along the shores of Danube river in Tulcea, the main gate to the Danube Delta.

The triathlon is part of RowmaniaFEST - The International Rowing Boats Festival, already at its sixth edition, an unique event in the Central and Eastern Europe, an authentic Danube Delta experience and an opportunity to discover the natural Danube Delta through its own landmarks: entertainment, tradition, culture and sports.
The Festival takes place during 26-28 August 2016, three days of paddling contests, rowing tours, triathlon, concerts on the Danube’s promenade, debates, film projections, Slow-Fish gourmet moments, presentations of social projects covering eco-tourism, slow-tourism and responsible tourism, expeditions in the Danube Delta etc.

Rowmania Fest is initiated by Mr. Ivan Patzaichin, one of the greatest athletes of Romania, born in Mila 23, a village in the Delta. Mr. Patazaichin is dedicated to the Danube Delta’s conservation and its future sustainable development as the most important eco-destination in Europe.
