    He collects scrap iron

    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 !

    The ships at the entrance gates of the city
    2 more images

    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.

    Radiovacanta (Radio holyday)
    4 more images

    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

    Local Dogs

    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.
