Travel Tips from people who've been to Constanta
1. After my first visit there in the 5th grade I became fascinated by this museum and it made me want to become an archaeologist....but life chose another path for me. There you can find artefacts and objects found from the earliest ages of life on this land till present, skelets, vases, costumes, jewelleries, weapons...you name it. I sometimes wish I could go there more often..what stoppes me? I don't know... 2. Histria Fortress is located at 63 km away from Constanta and is the oldest attested Greek settling on the territory of Romania. It was founded in the 7th Century B.C bt the Greeks coming from Milet, Asia Minor. Here we can admire Aphrodite's Temple, Zeus's Temple, Roman baths, forums and other remais of the great civilizations developed on Pontus Euxin's (Black Sea, the way it was called in ancient times) shores. The museum located there is also very interesting and I hope it's still in a good shape.
This is not safe place and it might be really hard to communicate with police (lack of English or any other language and also lack of will). Our car was parked on the main street for not very long and the window was kicked in and GPS was stolen. It took us 3 days to arrange the papers with police and we were stuck in that not very nice city for way too long. Try to find some local who would help you to communicate with the police and reserve LOT of time
If you arrive by train at the Constanta station, don't get in the harbour area after dark. We tried to reach the black sea from there, but the area is quite big, so we had to walk a few miles till we reached the promenade at the sea. It's prohibited to sleep there so don't try, cause at last but not least there are thousands of roaches in summer. If you walk a bit further you'll find a nice li'l pizzeria up the Street. Enjoy..
