Landscape views from Macin

The Măcin Mountains are one of the oldest in Romania, being formed in the second part of the Paleozoic. They are located in Romanian region called Dobrogea. Being so old, the erosion has created steep slopes, with the aspect of ruins and seen from Danube river they seem only low hills. However the predominant rock is granite.
The highest peak is Ţuţuiatu (also called Greci) which has a height of 467 meters.

Enjoy the power of erosion over time!
