Constanţa is Romania’s largest and most important port city on the Black Sea; in summer, it's also the gateway to the country's seaside resorts.
After passing through several countries and absorbing countless lesser waterways, the Danube empties into the Black Sea just south of the Ukrainian border.
The Danube port of Tulcea (pronounced tool-cha) is the largest city in the delta and the main entry point for accessing the region.
Mamaia, a thin strip of sand extending north from Constanţa, is Romania's most popular and expensive beach resort.
Tulcea to Sulina
First recorded in the mid-14th century by Visconti, a traveller from Genoa, the remote seaside village of Sfântu Gheorghe retains an ever-so-slight alternative vibe, fed by the town's lovely, lonely beach and its sleepy, noncommercial core.
Vama Veche & Doi Mai (2 Mai)
If you've got time for just one Romanian resort, make it Vama Veche.
Eforie Nord & Lake Techirghiol
Histria, or Istros, settled in 657 BC by Greek traders, is Romania’s oldest town.
Galaţi & Brăila
Eforie Nord, 14km south of Constanţa, is the first large resort south of the city.
Ancient Greek Callatis is today a little town which, compared to the fanfare of its northern-resort cousins, has a pulse that’s difficult to detect.
