Sulina North Pier
Build in 1887. Inactive. 14 m (46 ft.) tapered round masonry tower with lantern and two galleries, mounted on a round stone base.
Endangered: this abandoned lighthouse is in poor condition. Located on what remains of the old north pier at Sulina. Accessible only by boat. Site open; nothing prevents visitors from climbing the tower, although this is clearly dangerous.
(Romania has roughly 250 km (150 mi) of coastline on the northwestern side of the Black Sea. The southern half of the coastline has the country's major port, Constanţa, with its satellite ports Mangalia and Midia. The northern half is occupied by the large delta of the Danube River. After several centuries of control by the Ottoman (Turkish) Empire, Romania became independent in 1878, following a war between Russia and Turkey. The old lighthouse of Sulina, at the mouth of the Danube, is the only lighthouse surviving from the Ottoman period.)
