Revision as of 08:05, 2 July 2009
Sfântu Gheorghe is in Romania, in the far south east corner of the Danube Delta, approximately 1km from the Black Sea coast. If you want a mini-trip to dip in the Black Sea briefly and go 'see the Delta' for one hour, Sfântu Gheorge is not recommended as the best place to go.
In this small and remote village lies a remarkably large cinema-resort, which is home to the Anonimul International Independent Film Festival which is held for a month during summertime. Few people - most of them young and beautiful - get there to be young and beautiful. It's about having found a haven for cinema-lovers from all over the world, gathered together in a rather remote place, which gives the town some special atmosphere.
The village can only be reached with a minimum 2 hour river boat trip (on the fast ferry, 10 EUR) from Tulcea on Mondays and Wednesdays leaving at 1.30pm returning at 7am on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The slow ferry also leaves at 1.30pm from Tulcea to Sfantu Gheorghe on Tuesdays and Fridays and returning on Wednesdays and Sundays to Tulcea. The slow ferry costs 6 EUR and takes about 5.5 hours to reach the village. The boats only sail once per day.
All ferries are operated by Navrom (www.navrom.x3m.ro).
Hardly any paved streets. Its a very small village, and you can walk over the dirt road to the beach.
At the cinema resort are also a campsite and a hotel.
