    Mamaia Statue

    This statue is placed on the shore of the Black Sea, near the hotel Perla.

    For me, this statue has a special importance.

    My deceased father showed me this statue as I was five years, and he explicated to me that the name of the station comes from this mother with child.

    I don't know whether this explanation is right, but for me, it is an unforgettable memory.

    Unfortunately, I am no more five, and my father is not here, to answer to my questions.

    Cetatea Histria

    If you drive ~45minutes north of Constanta, and follow the coast line, you will eventually come to Cetatea Histria. Its hard to go much further since the road ends.

    This is an ancient site of the Roman capital of the region. It was a vital hub of agriculture, trade and patrol of the the Black Sea.

    Its not huge, but definately not crowded. You can walk around and see everything in ~1.5hrs.
