Constanta The Essential
Constanta is Romania's best-known Black Sea coast town, one of a string of resorts extending to the Bulgarian border. Its climate and fine beaches attract the tourists but it also has remains from its Greek past. On Ovid Square there is the inspiring national museum of history and archaeology and remarkable Roman mosaics, plus a statue to the Roman poet Ovid (exiled here). The old town's streets have some interesting buildings between the seafront and casino with its windswept Rococo façade.
