Explore the seaside and enjoy the highlights of Constanta
A day tour for those interested to find out more about the history of this town, from its early beginnings, some 2500 years ago, to the rebirth of the Modern Age and its contemporary life.
We will wander through the streets, discovering the symbols and traces of many cultures that have built or shared this space: Roman, Greek, Turkish, Armenian, Bulgarian or Jewish (and their respective religious buildings) standing alongside modern and contemporary architecture, in the midst of a busy city life.
We will climb up the tower of the Great Mosque, find the narrowest street and share stories about the past and present of the city.
The tour will also offer visits to two museums: The Museum of National History and Archeology of Constanta, that includes an exhibition on Communism in Dobrogea, and The Museum of Folk Art.
We will also visit Mamaia, the resort north of Constanta, where we stroll on a walkway on the sea, see the Queen's palace, and depending on the season, see Mamaia from the cable cart.
