Located on the Black Sea’s western coast, remnants of Constanţa’s 2,500-year history are strewn throughout the city. Legend even has it the Greek hero Jason landed here with the Argonauts. Stroll along the scenic shoreline or explore the city’s historic buildings and ruins.
Ovid’s Square (Piata Ovidiu)
Stand beneath a 19th-century statue of the Roman poet Ovid, who was exiled to Constanţa (then called Tomis) in A.D. 8. Ovid’s Square also holds the National History & Archaeology Museum, filled with Greco-Roman artifacts dating back to the 1st century A.D.
Art Noveau Casino (Cazinoul)
Accentuating the Black Sea coast, this incredible early 19th-century casino has since closed to the public, but it remains the most photographed building in the city. Romantic strolls near sunset reveal some of the best views of its impressive art noveau detail.
Cathedral of Peter and Paul
You’ll be graced by ruins from the ancient city of Tomis as you approach this Greco-Roman style cathedral. Damaged by a World War II aerial attack and later restored, the cathedral serves today as a monastery, and features elaborate frescoes at its entrance.
