  • The Roman Catholic Church in Malcoci locality was built in 1910 and is dedicated to St. George. In its outer austerity, heated on the inside by the carving of the consoles and the colors of the mural painting, the church represents a peak of art and technique of building wooden churches. Its value is doubled by a pictorial ensemble of the highest quality. (01)(02)

The church in Malcoci village, hundreds of years old, of an inestimable value, is doomed to a slow death, but safe. The church is abandoned and is in an advanced state of decay. However, the monument obstinates not to collapse, as if it is ignoring the laws of physics and the carelessness of those around, urging quiet and sad to be visited and the people not to forget the importance of preserving the sacredness, retrieval of the identity.

  • The Church of St. Paraskeva built in Molcoci village, is distinguished by its large size, being placed on a hill from which it dominates the view perfectly integrating into the landscape. The religious scenes depicted on the iconostasis of the church are impressive. (03)(04)

Proslaviţa Fortress from Nufăru commune is located 12 km downstream from Tulcea, on the right bank of the arm Sfântu Gheorghe. Since the beginning of the twentieth century have been reported the existence of some enclosure walls and a rich archaeological material. On the occasion of the archaeological excavations that take place in the form of some soundings practiced in the few areas free of constructions, from the urban surface of Nufăru locality, were discovered archaeological materials, chronologically staggered from the Hellenistic period to the Middle Ages.

In the northern area of the settlement was discovered the port facility of the fortress (visitable point). The fortress functioned until the middle of the thirteenth century and it was destroyed, probably in the time of the Tatar invasion, the settlement being rebuilt later in the thirteenth-fourteenth century.

The archaeological and numismatic material, impressive from a quantitative point of view, drew the attention of the specialists who have tried to locate here some of the most important centers mentioned by the written sources. Thus, there have been proposals of localization at Nufaru of Preslavului Mic or Periaslavetului mentioned in the tenth century, or of Proslavitei, toponym first recorded on a nautical map from the fourteenth century. The fortress was built a fundamentis by the Byzantine Empire, in an area with material traces from the Hallstatt, Latene and Roman-Byzantine Ages. In the Roman-Byzantine period on the Danube bank, in the northern end of the promontory, there functioned two surveillance towers of the line of the Danube. The archaeological researches – systematic or of rescue – much hampered by the fact that the current village Nufăru fully overlaps the medieval fortress – led to the unveiling of a part of the enclosure wall, of two massive, rectangular, visitable towers – one overlapped by Prislav public house, the other one – from the point „Dispensary” – restored and preserved by the construction of a building for protection, of numerous houses, kilns, of several Christian inhumation cemeteries; on the Danube bank, near the point of crossing the Danube Delta with the ferry, came out the port facility of the fortress.

The new transformations of the Romanian society tended to pass into memories the existence of the folklore ensemble from Nufăru commune, pushing to oblivion the extraordinary participations (1970, 1978) at great performances. Feeling how the lack of the sound and of the popular artistic movements of the past is deepening, the mayor of Nufăru commune put up together with the choreographer Galateanu Daniela the children ensemble “Nuferii Deltei” (The water lilies of the Delta). The ensemble has participated in numerous performances since then winning awards and carrying the name of the village in countless places.
