Constanta, Romania

Cruising to Constanta, Romania

If you're looking to get a feel for Romania in a short space of time, you can't do much better than its largest and most bustling port city Constanta. Situated on the Black Sea, there is plenty to enjoy here, including good museums, a pretty portside walk and a thriving gastronomic scene.

Among the tourist attractions you should visit, the National Museum of History and Archeology stands out particularly prominently because of its impressive display of pieces from the Greek and Roman Empires.

The Navy's Museum is also worth spending an hour in, as is the Sea Museum. But it's not all museums, and the portside Planetarium is just as good. Finally, accessing the beachside resorts of Mamaia needn't take more than 15 minutes by taxi. So even if you're not into any of the above, pristine stretches of coastline and discos are never far away.
