Constanta Historical Building
In 1914 King Ferdinand and Queen Marie tried to make a match for their son, Prince Carol, with the Grand Duchess Olga of Russia. The Russian Royal Family sailed from the Crimea to Constanta to meet the Romanian Royal Family. A Te Deum was held at St. Pual and Peter and a reception was hosted at a Pavillion that was built for the occasion. I don't know whether that Pavillion was a permanent structure and still exists or whether it was a temporary structure and no longer exists. I'm doing research for a paper and would really appreciate it if someone could give me the answer to this question. Any detail or website I could go to would be appreciated.
Thanks so much. I'm Robert Rossi at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have some information.
Re: Constanta Historical Building
here is a link that talks about the event, but it is in Romanian. They say about the visit an I rwote about the pavilion.
They say it was a provisory one buil in the harbour, on the pier where the Russian sheep arrived.
MMLL [Maiestatile Lor] si AALLRR [Altetele Lor Regale] au sosit cu suitele lor la Constanta, luând resedinta în palatul Prefecturii, în pavilionul de la mare si în hoteluri. Dupa ce s-a anuntat oficial vizita, ... s-a construit în paianta un pavilion de receptie la debarcader ... si o sala de gala lânga palatul Prefecturii, unde vor avea loc dejunurile si dineurile de gala.
... there was built from wood a pavilion for reception at the pier...
I hope it is useful for you.
Re: Constanta Historical Building
I have a page from a Romanian newspaper from that days (first of June, 1914, Constanta) with four pictures. I see in this pictures both Romanian and Russian Royals Familyes, King Carol I, Prince Ferdinand, Queen Elizabeth, Tsar Nicholas II, Empress Alexandra, Grand Duchess Olga. I located the Grand reception in the front of Constanta Casino.
Travel Tips for Constanta
Go shopping downtown, but also...
Go shopping downtown, but also make sure to hit the road side tents that you can find beautiful paintings or handmade lace things.
The museums for sure and also take a walk along the Sea where the garrison is. Sitting on the beach at night and seeing the stars so bright. The great deals and beautiful things the people make.
Visiting and sitting in 3 different types of MIG's and watching them fly. Amazing.
The Archeological Park on the Ferdinand Boulevard
The Park is situated on the Ferdinand Boulevard.
It was made in the year 1963.
Here, there are the 600 metres long walls of the ancient fortress, and many ceramic pieces, and other ancient historic vestiges.
This is a big attraction for the many tourists that come here, to visit the old city and to see with their own eyes the enduring attestations of the history.
The Park lies between the Summer Garden Tomis and the edifice of the Municipal Library.
The oldest Greek settling in Romania
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.
The Orthodox Cathedral "Saints Paul and Peter"
This wonderfuly religious edifice situated near of the Bleak Sea Coast was built between the years 1883 and 1885, after the plans of the architect Ion Mincu.
The church was constructed in Greek- Roman style, with an imposing façade.
The highest tower has a high of 35 metre.
The walls are cowered with red apparent elements.
