Located on the outskirts of Mangalia, Romania, Movile Cave is world-renowned for its unique chemo-synthesis-based ecosystem. 35 of the species that live here can be found nowhere else on earth.
Located on the Black Sea coast, North of Mangalia, this swamp is a peat bog rich in freshwater vegetation. It is fed with sulfide-rich water from a creek on its western shore and hydro-thermal vents on the lake's bottom.
Located to the West of Limanu village, this cave is an extensive 3.6 km long labyrinth know to the local population for more than 2000 years. Historians believe that in the past it served as a hide-out from invading armies.
