The Danube port of Tulcea (pronounced tool-cha) is the largest city in the delta and the main entry point for accessing the region. It’s got good bus and minibus connections to the rest of the country, and is home to the main passenger ferries. If you’ve only got a short amount of time (one to three days), you’ll want to base yourself here and explore the delta via boating day trips. If you’ve got more time, you’ll likely only transit through Tulcea on your way to deeper destinations like Sulina and Sfântu Gheorghe. There are plenty of good hotels and restaurants, and several interesting museums if you’re caught up in bad weather.
After passing through several countries and absorbing countless lesser waterways, the Danube empties into the Black Sea south of the Ukrainian border. The Danube Delta (Delta Dunării), included on Unesco’s World Heritage list, is one of Romania’s leading attractions. At Tulcea, the river splits into three separate channels: the Chilia, Sulina and Sfântu Gheorghe arms, creating a constantly evolving 4187-sq-km wetland of marshes, floating reed islets and sandbars. The region provides sanctuary for 300 species of bird and 160 species of fish. Reed marshes cover 1563 sq km, constituting one of the largest single expanses of reed beds in the world. The delta is a haven for wildlife lovers, birdwatchers, fishers and anyone wanting to get away from it all for a few days. There are beautiful, secluded beaches at both Sulina and Sfântu Gheorghe, and the fish and seafood, particularly the fish soup, are the best in Romania.
Constanţa is Romania’s largest and most important port city on the Black Sea; in summer it’s also the gateway to the country’s seaside resorts. Accommodation here is cheaper than in Mamaia and maxi taxis cover the journey in about 15 minutes, so it may be worthwhile to consider basing yourself here even if you’re only coming for Mamaia’s beaches and clubs. The city is working hard to scrub up the long-neglected area around the port, and there are some very good museums and a pretty portside walk. The restaurants are the best in this part of the country.
