In perspectiva integrarii Romaniei in structurile europene, s-a studiat dezvotarea unui proiect urban care sa vizeze constituirea unui pol urban pentru orasul Sulina. Aceasta localitate - cel mai mic oras din Romania, cel mai estic si singurul oras romanesc legat exclusiv pe calea apei de restul teritoriului - este astazi subiectul unor foarte ambitioase proiecte de dezvoltare culturala si turistica, negocieri si puternice investitii viitoare, data fiind conditia sa absolut exceptionala: situat la gurile Dunarii, asadar si la malul Marii Negre, si in Delta Dunarii - un loc aparte, cu un enorm potential turistic si cultural inca neexploatat.

Patrimoniul urban al Sulinei dateaza din vremea in care orasul era un port important si, datorita amplasarii sale la mila 0 a Dunarii, gazduia cea mai importanta organizatie europeana, din care faceau parte zece mari puteri europene, inclusiv Romania: Comisia Europeana a Dunarii. Aceasta perioada prospera incepe la 1866 si va sfarsi in 1939, la inceperea celui de-al 2-lea razboi mondial. Dupa mai mult de 50 de ani de abandon, structurile specifice de patrimoniu urban sunt amenintate astazi cu degradarea, iar salvarea lor este absolut obligatorie. Alaturi de cladiri de patrimoniu, Sulina detine de asemenea un bogat repertoriu de constructii vernaculare, specifice, care ii confera un caracter aparte, contribuind la atmosfera si farmecul locului.

Related to the integration of Romania into EU, it has been developed a research and urban design study on the development of an urban pole for the city of Sulina. This place - the smallest Romanian city, the most eastern point and the only Romanian city linked only by water with the rest of the territory - is today the subject of ambitious projects for tourist and cultural development, negotiations and future developments due to its absolutely exceptional condition: situated where the Danube flows into the Black Sea, in the Danube Delta. It is a special place, with a huge unused cultural and tourist potential.

The urban heritage of Sulina dates since the city was an important port. Due to its location on mile 0 of the Danube, it hosted the most important European water traffic institution, formed by 10 stated among which was also Romania: The Danube European Committee. These prosperous times started in 1866 and ended in 1939, at the beginning of the 2nd WW. After more than 50 years of abandon during the communist regime, the urban heritage of the city is strongly affected and their rescue becomes a must. Beside classified buildings, Sulina holds a rich heritage of vernacular buildings, very specific, which bring a special character and contribute to the charm of this place.
