Travel to the Black Sea main landmarks

Bucharest – Constanta – Mamaia

I’d like to see you at 8:00 am. We’ll meet at your hotel. We drive along the highway to Constanta, towards the Black Sea coast. We are going over there to discover the city founded around 600 BC. It’s the oldest continuously inhabited city in Romania.

Originally called Tomis, the city was founded by Greek colonists from Miletos in the 6th century BC. Then was conquered by the Romans in 71 BC and renamed it Constantiana by Roman Emperor Constantine the Great in honor of his sister.

The history of the city continues with Genoese merchants. It began to decline in the 15th century when it fell under Turkish rule. In 1878, it became part of Romania, after The Russo-Turkish War of 1877, also called The Romanian War of Independence. Fighting on the Russian side, Romania gained independence from the Ottoman Empire.

At the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, King Carol I decided to revive Constanta as a port and seaside resort. That’s why fine mansions and hotels were built now. In 1895, the famous engineer Anghel Saligny designed over the Danube river the longest bridge at that time from Europe. He also designed the storage facilities in Constanta seaport. That’s a special pool to allow oil export and two silos for grain export.

We walk along the cliff to see the Casino. It was designed by architect Daniel Renard in the art-nouveau style and completed between the two World Wars.

The Roman Mosaics it’s an interesting complex on three levels who once linked the upper town to the harbor. Built toward the end of the 4th century AD it was the city’s commercial center. Remains of the Roman public baths can still be seen.

The Genoese Lighthouse, The Ovidiu Square, The House with Lions, The Carol I Mosque are other sightseeing that we visit during the tour.

After all of these, we’ll spend some time on Mamaia’s beach (Romanian Ibiza) to enjoy life at the beach.
