He treads on the streets and he collects the scrap iron. He has a little wagon ( four wheeled ) and shouts all day long : "Old scrap iron!" I thought this custom is a story of my childhood but it appeared again , poor people make this for some money !
Every year , in October , Romanians celebrate Harvest Day ! It's a celebration of autumn , great opportunity to enjoy , fun , listen popular songs , watch traditional dances , eat "mititei " , drink beer , taste apple pie , buy vegetables and fruits at reasonable prices from the local merchants ! Wonderful time of the year .
Everywhere I go I must eat some ice cream ...from Ile St. Louis ( Berthillon - Paris ) to the smallest village from an unknown place ...
Still there is an ice cream machine that's remind me of my childhood . It's situated on the main shopping area , near Tomis Mall . You can't miss it because everybody buys ice cream from hear ! It costs only 0.75 eur .
At all the entrance points into the city Constanta, there are ships that symbolize the most important emblem of the city.
The old ships were in function for a long time, but now, they are only a symbol of the haven.
This was an interesting initiative of the city hall of Constanta.
In 1967 was produced the radio sender named “Radiovacanta” – Radio Holyday.
It sends for the tourists that spend their vacation on the coast of the Black Sea.
It is the first radio sender that transmits the news simultaneous in five languages.
The building where the radio sender works is placed directly on the Mamaia Beach.
That was an excellent idea, because the Radio Holyday is an oasis of happiness, fun and music on the Romanian Littoral.
Address: Vila nr. 1 Mamaia, Constanta, ROMANIA
I've heard the animals can tell alot about the population. If stray dogs run from everyone and seem to live in fear, the locals don't usually respect the animals.
Here in Constanta, the dogs would just lie on the sidewalk, and you'd have to walk around them. I guess that means that people here, in general, aren't cruel to animals.
Constanta has an interesting museum called "Museum of History and Archelogy" which displays many things that remember local history: Greek and Roman jewels, inscriptions and drawings from the cave complex of Basarabi and the statues excavated near the former railway station.
Visiting the Romanian Navy Museum you will see the whole history of the navigation of this region (full scale models, weapons, anchors, naval installations, boats and sailors costumes), everything from Greek ships to Romanian battleships of Second World War.
Constanta have few important universityes, which make this city one of the best university center from Romania.
I wouldn't say that there is anything unique about the buildings here, but here are some photos for you to decide.
Here's the view out of my hotel window just after sunrise. Reminds me of an Italian village actually.
