Harvest day in Constantza
Amphorae at Navy Museum
I'm going to Constanta for a day trip at the end of July. Can anybody tell me how much are the entrance fees for the museums(the historical,navy and art ones) and if there is a Free day museum there? Also I'm interested in the Dolphinarium?
I read many tips about Constanta,but I'm open to any recommendations:))
Thanks in advance
Re: Museum Fees
I called the Art Museum in Constanta (82-84 Tomis Bvd)and the entrance fee is 9 lei (4,17 leva I suppose). No luck at the marine museum but the fee can't be much higher.
The Dolphinarium, (255 Mamaia Bvd) has a 9 lei fee as well and the demnstrations take place at 11 AM, 3 PM and 7 PM.
The Planetarium (fee: 10 lei), acquarim (close to the Casino, on 1 Elisabeta Bvd, entrance fee: 14 lei), microreservation (4 lei) and exotic birds (3 lei) sections are opened between 8 AM and 8 PM.
I hope this helps.

The Casino - built in 1909...
The Casino - built in 1909 was inaugurated in August 1910; the designs were made by the French architect Daniel Renard (first design was made in 1903; in 1905, the architect Petre Antonescu made the second design - but the first one was chosen). The building has been the most representative in town for decades, a real symbol for Constanta; it was also the only representative of \'art nouveau\' style in Romania. On the top of the building, the decorations consists of old ships representations (ram heads and alga garlands); inside there are staircases and imposing banisters, covered columns and marble girdles on the walls. In 1985-1987 the building was restored, the furniture was entirely changed. When i'm not in Constanta i miss the aer is a little bit salty aer becouse of the sea.But to fell that you must come and visit this city and you'll not regreted.
