CONSTANŢA is a lively city that combines millennial history with modernity. Constanta warmly welcomes its guests, with a lot of charm and astonishing sights. It is a city that celebrates multiculturalism, where Oriental Western civilizations are closely entwined to create its spectacular and lively spirit. Constanta lies in south-eastern Romania, on the Black Sea coast. To the north lies Mamaia resort, with a beach on the east stretching for over 6 km, which gives it sunny exposure all day long. Constanta is Romania’s main sea port and covers an area of 3182 ha (dry and aquatory.
The Greeks, Byzantines and Ottomans have left their mark on the history of this city In the seventh century B.C., the Greeks established here Tomis Fortress In their voyages, the experienced Greek sailors were attracted by the harbor formed by the bay and its peninsula on the western Black Sea coast, as well as by the great trade with the leaders of the local population, the Getians "who consider themselves immortal" (Herodotus). Tomis – the banished Roman poet Ovid’s new home – was founded in a complex process of Greek colonization on the shores of Pontus Euxinus, and started gaining urban attributes in the fourth century B.C. The importance of Tomis increased considerably during Emperor Constantine the Great’s reign – from whose name derives the present name of the city.. During that time great temples and edifices, as well as squares and thermae (public baths) were built , workshops for marble processing were established, and streets and new neighborhoods were developed Subject to the migratory peoples’ attacks, the city was turned into ruins many times over. Several centuries later, on the ruins of ancient Tomis, a small fishing settlement appeared and grew gradually to become over the next centuries the present city of Constanta. Today, the ruins of the ancient civilization can be seen everywhere in the city. However, we can speak about the real development of Constanta only in the wake of the War of Independence (1878), when Romania's victory returned the province to the motherland. A second stage of Constanta’s spectacular evolution was the interwar period, and the next important milestone in its evolution was the Revolution of 1989.
