Sfântu Gheorghe is a village in the far south east corner of the Danube Delta in Romania, approximately 1 km from the Black Sea coast.


In this small and remote village lies a remarkably large cinema-resort, which is home to the Anonimul International Independent Film Festival which is held for a month during summertime. Few people - most of them young and beautiful - get there to be young and beautiful. It's about having found a haven for cinema-lovers from all over the world, gathered together in a rather remote place, which gives the town some special atmosphere.

If you want a mini-trip to dip in the Black Sea briefly and go 'see the Delta' for one hour, Sfântu Gheorge is not the best place to go.

Get in[edit]

The village can only be reached with a minimum 2-hour river boat trip (on the fast ferry, €10) from Tulcea on Mondays and Wednesdays leaving at 1:30PM returning at 7am on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The slow ferry also leaves at 1:30PM from Tulcea to Sfantu Gheorghe on Tuesdays and Fridays and returning on Wednesdays and Sundays to Tulcea. The slow ferry costs €6 and takes about 5½ hours to reach the village. The boats only sail once per day. All ferries are operated by Navrom. See Navrom Delta for the boat schedule.

Get around[edit]

Hardly any paved streets. Its a very small village, and you can walk over the dirt road to the beach.







At the cinema resort are also a campsite and a hotel.
