It is bounded by the regions of Russe, Razgrad, Shumen and Dobrich. It also borders on Romania by land and by the Danube River. The territory of the region includes parts of the hilly Danubian Plain, Dobrudzha and Ludogorie lowlands.
The relief is predominantly plain. Rivers, which flow through the region, are small and they often run dry in summer. The Danube River is a natural waterway connecting Silistra with Central and Eastern Europe.
The economic and cultural development of the region has been heavily influenced by the Romanian occupation of South Dobrudzha. After the Balkan War of 1913 the town of Silistra has been taken in Romanian possession and was regained by Bulgaria in 1940.
The landscape is agricultural; grain and technical crops are generally grown. Conditions related to natural climate and soil in the region are extremely conducive to developing modern farming. There are no century-old forests and the scenery is varied by forest shelterbelts.
Natural and historical realities of the region enable the development of cognitive, cultural, ecological, rural and hunting tourism. The most interesting natural site in the region is Lake Srebarna. It is located in the south-western part of the plain and is part of the Srebarna Biosphere Reserve, included in the UNESCO List of World Cultural Heritage. Several islands have been formed in the Danube, some of which are suitable for recreational and tourist purposes. The Karakuz natural game preserve provides opportunities for hunting tourism and the nature reserves of Malak Preslavets (a lake with water-lilies) and Srebarna are convenient places for ecotourism.
There are numerous archeological objects and artifacts throughout the region – Thracian mounds, remnants of fortresses, the unique Silistra sepulcher. Due to the strategic location of the region, fortresses have been built there until the 19th century. Houses and churches from the National Revival period have been preserved and the fishermen’s neighbourhood (Ribarskata mahala) in Tutrakan is the only architectural complex of this kind in Bulgaria.
Amongst the historical landmarks in Silistra district are also:
- Kyuchuk Kainardzha drinking fountain (Kyuchukkainardzhiiska cheshma) in the village of Kainardzha, where a peace treaty between Russia and Turkey was signed in 1774;
- Military Tomb Memorial Complex near the village of Shumentsi, in memory of those who died in 1916 for the liberation of Dobrudzha.
