Sulina – one of the 3 channels through which the Danube river (longest river of Europe) flows into the Black Sea.

The Danube river begins its long journey flowing from Germany’s Black Forest through Austria, Slovakia, Croatia, Hungary, Serbia, Romania, Ukraine and Moldova.

In Romania, Danube finds its gateway into the Black Sea through 3 channels, where it also forms the Danube Delta nearby.

In 1878, after the Russian-Turkish War where the Western Powers intervened, the the Russian competition from the area and the Ottoman monopoly were removed, and the new Romanian state fell in the economic sphere of Western interests. The European Commission of the Danube was born and the Danube navigation channel became an international water route. Towns like Galati, Sulina and Constanta became cosmopolitan centers, and control over trade and exports went from the Ottomans to British and Jewish merchants. The cereal crisis in Great Britain was ameliorated and Western Powers had new maritime commercial routes.
