CONSTANZA HIGHLIGHTS & WINE
More than 2500 years have passed since on the place of today's Constanta there was a settlement founded by the Greek navigators and merchants who have come from Millet. In their voyages on sea, the Greek navigators have been attired by the shelter offered by the bay and peninsula from the Black See shore, as well as by the good trade opportunities offered by the natives, Getaes. The most flourishing period of this city fortress, named Tomis, is the middle of the 1st century A.C. Roman domination on the territories between Istros (Danube) and the Black Sea, which became Roman province, raised the city at the rank of capital. In this time many temples were built, big buildings, public squares and baths, marble shops, streets and new districts. However, the flourishing fortress is devastated by the Avars in 601. Some centuries after, on the ruin of Tomis, starts to develop a little anglers settlement, which, gradually, in the following centuries became Constanta. Vestiges of the old civilizations is found today almost everywhere in the city.Your SEADREAM Land Adventure starts at the Casino, a beautiful art nouveau building on a cliff directly over the Sea, with a beautiful view over the harbor of Constanta.
