Have a bright, sunny day at the Black Sea.
Stay in town at beaches like Modern Beach or Vega Beach and make a beeline for the waters of Romania's Black Sea, which are anything but dark and gloomy. Spread out a towel and soak up the sun, or dip your toes into the calm surf. Then, take a taxi to Plaja Eforie Norda. It's a bit outside the city but boasts a longer, wider beach with plenty of umbrellas and great people-watching.
Constanta's Museum of Natural History.
Make your way to Piata Ovidiu, a lively public square where you'll also find the Museum of Natural History and Archaeology and the regal 19th-century building that houses it. Soak in exhibitions on history both recent and ancient, then visit the Dolphinarium at the Natural Sciences Museum. Watch Constanta's cutest residents swim and play around, and learn about the importance of dolphins within the Black Sea ecosystem.
Dig deeper into Constanta's past at the Roman Mosaic Floors, located just a short walk from Piata Ovidiu. Take a walk around the defunct Constanta Casino, whose elaborate 19th-century facade honors the glamour of days gone by. Or visit Carol I Mosque, which was also built in the late 19th-century and remains an important place of worship for the Muslims who call Constanta home today.
Tear into fresh-caught seafood straight from the Black Sea: a filet of tuna or herring, a succulent octopus tentacle or rapana, a Black Sea mollusk typically served fried or grilled — there's nothing else like it. Or, sit down for more traditional Romanian dishes, be they savory ones like sarmale cabbage rolls filled with ground meat, or sweet amandine, a chocolate cake filled with creamy almond paste.
Enjoy your retail alongside locals and fellow travelers as you shop in modern Constanta malls such as City Park Mall and VIVO! Constanta. Or, get a taste of traditional Romanian craftsmanship at small local stalls situated around Piata Ovidiu, where you can browse Bucovina, traditional painted eggs that will have you dreaming of adventure in the mountains of Transylvania.
