Constanta (Constanța) is Romania’s oldest city. With a population of 400,000, it’s also Romania’s fourth largest city and the largest port of the Black Sea.
Constanta was founded in 600 B.C. as a Greek settlement named “Tomis” (Τομίς) and it was then the main port serving the inland. It was later renamed after Constantia, niece of Emperor Constantine the Great.
Modern Constanta is a famous travel destination. An idyllic summer resort by the sea, Constanta boasts some of the best beaches you could find across the Black Sea.

Right next to the museum, you can enjoy the legendary Roman Mosaics of Constanta! They’re kept in a modern building just around the corner and they are a sight for sore eyes!
