Sulina – a beautiful town in the Danube Delta
Sulina, a small, fishing town, is located in Tulcea County and is the town located at the lowest average altitude in Romania, stretching along the Danube at a distance of approximately 1 km from the Black Sea coast. It is one of the oldest settlements in our country, about 1300 years old.
A port on the Danube and the Black Sea, Sulina is not directly connected to the road network in Romania, as it is located between waters, so it can only be reached by sea, either on the Danube or the Black Sea.
