About The Event

Wetskills Events Wave

For the sixth time to Romania!

Romania has a very diverse landscape and water system, with high mountains and the largest Delta of the European Union: Danube Delta. Romania faces challenges in water and wastewater, in both large urban areas as well as remote rural villages, and has a large water management experience of dealing with floods and droughts. And the country itself is inspiring and various: From the booming big Bucharest with its historic buildings and churches, immens large People’s Parliament and the Old City with bars, pubs as heart of the City to idillic smaller cities and villages in epic Transylvania and more low and dry Wallachia (border to Bulgaria) and the Europe’s largest bioreserve Danube Delta.
