trip around black sea
I'm writing from France because I'm thinking about travelling around Eastern Europe and Cavkaz during the summer...and I'd like to know if there's a way of going by boat from Constanta to somewhere in Georgia?
Can anyone answers to that?
Thanks, take care*
Re: trip around black sea
No Stan, isn't a boat for crossing the Black Sea. Romanians want to travel only in... west and Georgians have not enough money for travel...
Re: trip around black sea
I would suggest getting a trans-balkan rail pass .... The countryside is much more interesting to see by train! How much water can you look at anyway?
There is a water transport for trucks and cargo....it takes 6 days...and I'm not sure if they take passengers or not.
Try the cfr site for romanian trains.

Not far from the south entrance from Constanta, there is the Holyday Village, a collection of traditional rustic restaurants and small inns, representing all the regions of the country.
In Mamaia there is the first aquatic amusement park from Romania, called Aqua Magic, on a surface of 2 hectares.

Of course if you come in summer in Constanta is not good for you to miss the beach but in winter if you come you'll have to avoid it becouse of the wind,but if the weather permit it you can go there is nice and lonely.
