Sulina is a town in the Danube Delta.

Understand[edit]

Located at the eastern end of the Danube Delta very close to the Black Sea coast, Sulina is a good location for tourists that want to combine exploring the Delta with spending some time on a quiet beach.

Get in[edit]

The only practical way to reach Sulina is by boat. There are daily ferries from Tulcea, with travel times ranging between 1 1/2 and 4 hours. Most of them leave at around 1pm in the summer. From Bucharest, take the 7am departure from the bus station at 242 calea plevenei, or the 0518 train from Bucuresti Nord

Do[edit]

Visit the lighthouse for 5 ron. Open the double door at the top to access the open air terrace.

Stop in at the multinational cemetery (free). It's divided into Christian, Muslim & Jewish sectors, and has many nationalities represented. Poles, Turks, Greeks, English, Germans, French, Italians, Romanians, Bulgarians and many others lived in Sulina back in its heyday.

Continue walking down this road to the beach. Everything was shut 31 March 2016 but its a nice spot to get away from it all.
