   Delta's history began over 10,000 years ago by depositing
successive layers of silt , they clogged the existing sea bay at the mouth of the Danube into the Black Sea. Silt and sand sea gave birth to the great banks, the Delta islands, Letea and Caraorman. Due to this phenomenon, was formed three branches: St. George (69.7 km), Sulina (63.7 km) and Chilia (120 km). Between these branches have formed a lot of natural links, channels and lakes, which host a wonderful vegetation and fauna. Delta have the total area of ​​5800 square km , including lagoon Razim - Sinoe complex. Delta is the "youngest" region of the country and also the most important wetland in Central Europe, with beautiful lakes and canals and large areas of reed between the three main branches of the river. The main attraction is the remarkable biodiversity, with over 1,100 plant species, 325 bird species and over 110 fish species present in an area occupying less than 2% of Romania's surface.
     Sulina is the only city in the Danube Delta which have Black Sea port function. It is an ancient settlement, mentioned since 950 AD Porfirogenetul Constantine. In the tenth century, the town was mentioned as "Selina". Toponym is as old Romanian anthroponyms today, Sorin and Sorina, about dawn (cf. Lat. Sol "Sun"), after the old beliefs, the (re) daily grand star birth in the Black Sea. With these old mystical tradition in solar, Sulina is now the easternmost city in Romania and, now, the easternmost point of the European Union.

    By the middle of the nineteenth century, Sulina was a village with about 1000 inhabitants, in which
pirates and robbers swarmed around the Black Sea and Danube Delta. At that time there was famine in United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, a terrible drought and the invasion of Colorado beetles on potatoes. Then had came the question of importation the grain from Europe, including the Danubian principalities, which were important for grain supplies. But in that time, the Black Sea was controlled by the Ottoman Empire and Russian Empire. The Danube was an important route for transport of continental large quantities of grain. So, the UK and all other Western powers were concerned that navigation on the river to be free, as access to the Black Sea and the waters are deep enough for passage of large vessels with a draft. So did the studies for achieving these goals.
After the Crimean War,
in 1859, Moldova and the United Principalities, have obtained access to the Black Sea in southern Bassarabia, by counties Cahul, Bolgrad and Ismail, returned to the Russian Empire, avoiding territory still under Ottoman rule. Unlocking significant cash funds from the Western powers, European Danube Commission (EWC) was created in 4 November 1856 in Galati, which would last 82 years. At the beginning the powers who represented this international body were: the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Second French Empire, the United Kingdom, Prussia, Russian Empire and Ottoman Empire. Principality of Moldavia was then only an advisory role. After the Revolutionary War and returned to its mother Dobrogea, Romania United became a full member of the Commission.
