Sulina is a city located at the foot of the arm of the same name, and it is a port city on both the Danube and the Black Sea. It is a city located at an altitude of about 4 m above sea level.
Here is a maritime cemetery, unique in the country and even in Europe. Another tourist attraction is the Old Lighthouse, dating from 1802. Sulina also has a few kilometers of beach at the Black Sea, but this does not attract a large number of tourists.
The beach in this area is unpaved and is used for nudism in isolated areas. The fact that it is an unpaved beach gives it a natural look. The beach has sand similar to that of Mamaia.
It is an alternative to the Vama Veche resort. A large part of the well-known Romanian film “All the top sheets” was filmed here.
The sand is grasping from place to place by vegetation, the water is clean, and between the sandbanks, the water is very small, ideal even for families with children.
The Danube Delta Eco-Tourist Museum Center
It is located in the center of Tulcea, it was opened relatively recently, in 2009; built on three levels the most attractive being the basement of course, where there are fish basins.
The aquariums are fascinating and visited by thousands of tourists and are located in the basement of the museum.
The first aquarium is cylindrical and has a tube through which you can slide to look at the fish from inside to outside. A fascinating idea, to stand “near” a shark follows a few colors with huge aquariums and a glass tunnel underneath the museum’s largest pool (the one with sturgeons), which will create the impression that the fish swim above your head.
There is a small door on the aisle where you enter a half-cylinder, and you feel as if you were in the aquarium, arm with sturgeons. In the spirit of the Delta, the ceiling of the museum is decorated with fishing nets.
Between the dunes are raised strips of a forest full of climbing plants of all types. Letea forest is often called the “Delta Jungle” and is considered by experts as one of the most impressive natural environments in the whole of Eastern Europe.
