It has borders on Romania by land and by the Danube river. The territory of the region includes parts of the hilly Danubian Plain, Dobrudza and Ludogorie lowlands. The Danube river is a natural waterway connecting Silistra with Central and Eastern Europe. The other rivers, wich flow through the territory are small and they often run dry in summer. The landscape is agricultural; grain and technical crops are generally grown. Conditions related to natural climate and soil in the region are extremely conductive to developing modern farming.

Lake Srebarna is the most attractive natural site in the region, 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 tourist and recreational purposes. The Kazakuz natural game preserve provides opportunities for hunting and ecotourism.
