Sulina: Maritime Cemetery


 

 

 

Located out of town beach, the maritime cemetery consists of a set of three cemeteries: Christian Cemetery (divided into the C.E.D. Cemetery, Orthodox of Old-Rite-Lipoveni Orthodox Cemetery, Cemetery of the Western European churches), Hebrew Cemetery, Muslim Cemetery.  Tomb of Princess Catherine Moruzi is found among the graves of officers and commanders of the Romanian Royal Navy. This was a granddaughter of Ioan Sturza Moldavian prince, born in Istanbul but had the end of her life in Sulina and the grave of William Simpson, the man of confidence of chief engineer of the Danube European Commission.  The latter led 13 years of construction works on the canall, from jetties and lighthouses on the pier.
