Danube Delta

This atmospheric lighthouse is the town symbol. It was built by the occupying Ottoman Empire in the early 1800s and served as the base of the European Commission of the Danube from the late 19th century to the start of WWII. There's a small museum here dedicated to the life of Sulina-based author Eugeniu Botez (aka 'Jean Bart'). You can also climb to the top.
