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. Most visitors simply pass through on their way to a beach holiday or spend the day as part of a Danube river cruise, though the city's decent hotels, very good restaurants and assortment of interesting museums scattered around the port area justify an overnight stay.
