Sulina is a town and free port in Tulcea County, Romania, at the mouth of the Sulina branch of the Danube. It is the easternmost point of Romania and of the continental European Union.

Once a prosperous port and important shipyard, from 1856 to 1939 the seat of the Danube Commission, Sulina has become a disadvantaged location.

The reason is that the town has no road access, the only way to reach it is by boat that leaves Tulcea and goes along the Sulina branch of the Danube. This keeps tourists at the seaside at low numbers.

Sulina is between the Danube and the Black Sea and its location gives perfect access to both the Black Sea's beach and to visit the Danube Delta.

It sounds like Sulina is the perfect place to get away from it all. Thank you for teaching me about Sulina.

Well, ehhhhhh yes….

My wife was actually a bit traumatized after our visit.

At the local hotel we had to change our room three times before we felt OK.
The first room had the bathroom sink smashed and no key to the door.
The second room had no air-condition and this was mosquito time in the delta.
The third room had air-con, but no power cord to plug.
After a trip to a local building site this turned out to be OK though.
We tried to get the landlord to cook a little bit for us, but it turned out that he was a little bit too drunk for this….

Other ways the delta was really fantastic and interesting. To be out there with a guide with his private boat was stunningly superb!

- So if not the end of the world, maybe the beginning…?
