Sulina the old Porto – Franco, and the place where the Danube flows into the sea!

The city of former adventurers, of pirates and workers paid in gold, still keeps the old harbor the same when it was destroyed by the communists because it represented a banner of the capitalist society. In the early 1900, Sulina became the most important harbor at the Black Sea and the place where it could be spoken for the first time about the concept of United Europe. With 8 consular representations, lots of navigation companies, 2 modern hospitals, telegraph, water supply, public lighting, 2 Romanian schools, 2 Greek schools, a German school, a Turkish school, a French boarding school, the English Marine Institute, theater, 3 printings, 3 local newspapers, 2 cinemas, casino. Sulina knew a flourishing development. Sailors, merchants and businessmen from all around the world were gathering here to plan.

The administrative palace of the Danube European Committee, the Cathedral of Saint Nicholas and Saint Alexander, built at the request of king Carol I, a copy of the catholic church from the springs of the Danube, the water tower built with the support of the queen of Netherlands or the lighthouse from within the locality, the maritime cemetery – unique in both the country and Europe, few of the main points of interest from Sulina remain witnesses of old times.

The city which spans along the Danube is not directly linked to the network of roads from Romania, you can access it only by boat, either on the Danube or the Black Sea.

The city of Sulina it’s an alternative of the towns on the seaside when is about spending time in a vacation. The tourists enjoy the Delta, as well as the virgin and the most quietest beaches of the Romanian seaside!
