Opportunities for the development of tourism in Letea River levee of the Danube Delta biosphere reserve

Abstract: At the level of the Delta rural areas dominate. The river levee is Letea – C. A. Rosetti locality and it is considered the most isolated settlement in Romania. Making a strategic tool for tourism development in the Rosetti locality from turning its entire natural and cultural heritage has proven to be a multi-step problem, given the economic and social context of human settlements. Lifetime socio-economic development depends on a minimum shipping and road access. The main problem is to change the management of existing resources and to reduce the phenomenon of accentuated depopulation and the current economic underdevelopment. There are many drawbacks, and the last 20 years have brought essential positive changes to the community life. The degree of geographical isolation does not need to be primordial and may diminish its influence by expanding and upgrading communication lines and standard of living by making facilities and utilities, by diversifying local occupations. There are real opportunities for investment to start work and develop rural tourism in this situation.
