City of Sulina
(Aug 7, 2013)
Sulina is a town and free port in Tulcea County, Romania, at the mouth of the Sulina branch of the Danube. It is the easternmost point of Romania.

Once a prosperous port and important shipyard, from 1856 to 1939 the seat of the Danube Commission, Sulina has become a disadvantaged location.
The reason is that the town has no road access, the only way to reach it is by boat that leaves Tulcea and goes along the Sulina branch of the Danube. This keeps tourists at the seaside at low numbers.
Sulina is between the Danube and the Black Sea and its location gives perfect access to both the Black Sea's beach and to visit the Danube Delta.

In order to visit Sulina during the summer time it is necessary to depart from Tulcea and travel by boat for a minimum of one and a half hours. In winter, when the Danube is frozen over, the travel time needed to reach the nearest city, with a special ice-breaking ship, is extended to about eight hours. In the early mornings, upon arrival from Tulcea, one is confronted with the desolate image of the remains of the former fish factory and the naval shipyard cloaked in a timid coat of sunlight, as soon as the boat approaches the waterfront.

Centrul Vechi: Bucharest's Old Town
(Aug 4, 2013)
Centrul istoric al Bucureștiului ocupă o zonă situată în cea mai mare parte în sectorul 3.

Centrul istoric este o parte a cartierului Centru Civic, care se întinde în Sectorul 2, Sectorul 3 și Sectorul 5. În această zonă se află străzile: Lipscani, Șelari, Covaci, Doamnei, Stavropoleos, Franceză, Șepcari și altele; tot aici se găsesc Curtea Veche, Hanul lui Manuc, bisericile Stavropoleos și Sfântul Anton, ca și numeroase alte clădiri vechi declarate monumente istorice.

În apropiere este amplasat kilometrul zero (oficial) al României: în Piața Bisericii Sfântul Gheorghe-Nou.


Known to most locals as Centru Vechi (the Old Centre), Bucharest's Old Town is defined by the area bordered by the Dambovita river to the south, Calea Victoriei to the west, Bulevardul Brătianu to the east and Regina Elisabeta to the north. The area is more or less all that’s left of pre-World War II Bucharest. What the war didn’t destroy (and it destroyed a fair bit: allied bombing was fierce during the early part of 1944) communism did, most notably in the form of the grandiose Civic Centre project that saw almost a fifth of the total area of the city flattened to make way for Bulevardul Unirii and Casa Poporului. Indeed, that anything survives at all is little short of a miracle.

While much of Bucharest has changed beyond recognition over the past two decades, nothing compares to the recent transformation of Old Town/Lipscani, which in the past two years has turned what was very much a no-go area with almost nothing to offer into the Romanian capital’s liveliest entertainment district.

The area is still something of a work in progress, but it’s a rewarding place to explore, one of the few areas of the capital that is. You will certainly not want for things to do, to see, or for places to eat, drink and dance.
