Enisala Fortress - The Only Medieval Citadel In Dobrogea
Enisala Fortress is located 2 kilometers away from the town with the same name in Tulcea County. The name of the Enisala Fortress, which is one of the most beautiful citadels in Dobrogea, comes from the Turkish ‘yen’ (new) and Dobrogea regionalism ‘sale’ (settlement, village), meaning new place. Apparently, the Turks took over the name of the administrative system near the city, and it was called Vicus Novus (New Village), then Novoe Selo. At the same time, the city is known as Heraclia or Heraclea.
The only medieval fortress from Dobrogea that survived the Turkish-Russian wars from the 19th century, Enisala tells the hundreds of years old story of the time when the powerful Genovese merchants controlled the maritime commerce of the Black Sea. Its architecture also indicates its original military importance, as the fortress had defensive towers on three of its sides, five of them still conserved today.
Today, its uniqueness and historical importance make it one of the top attractions from the shore of the Black Sea.
