Welcome to Eforie Nord & Lake Techirghiol
Eforie Nord, 14km south of Constanţa, is a honky-tonk seaside resort, free of pretension, where families come to soak up the sun on the beach by day and gorge on junk food by night. That said, there's another reason for making a detour here: the amazing mud. Lake Techirghiol, within walking distance of the centre of town, is famous for its dark sapropel mud. This black sediment is dense with organic matter and when slathered over your body is said to be restorative for skin and bones. Eforie Nord is a seasonal resort, running from June to the end of August. By September things slow to a crawl.
