a floodplain of the Danube in Rumania, between the cities of Giurgiu and Galaţi. It is characterized by a labyrinth of branches and numerous lakes; it is most clearly articulated from Cǎlǎraşi to Brǎila (between both branches of the Danube). It is covered with overgrowths of cane and reeds, and on the sandy banks (called grindas) are thickets of willow and poplar.
