Constanța - the oldest city in Romania - at Black Sea coast

For the summer season and not only, a visit to the Black Sea, respectively Constanta and Mamaia Resort is the perfect way to spend one perfect day.<br><br>Constanta is a charming city on the shore of the Black Sea, located at a distance of approximately 220 km (highway) from Bucharest.

Definitely a monument that I'm speechless of. I really recommend tourists to visit this piece of art, because surely you will learn a lot of history about Romania. My favourite part of this monument is of course the statue, but the base is constructed in a very talented way. Everyday I think about how did those people live in those times. It's unbelievable. As I said, I really, really, really recommend visiting this place at least once.

The original Tropaeum Traiani was built in 109 to commemorate Roman Emperor Trajan's victory over the Dacians, in the winter of 101-102, in the Battle of Adamclisi. On the monument there were 54 metopes depicting Roman legions fighting against enemies; most of these metopes are preserved in the museum nearby. The monument was supposed to be a warning to the tribes outside this newly conquered province. By the 20th century, the monument was reduced to a mound of stone and mortar, with a large number of the original bas-reliefs scattered around. The present edifice is a reconstruction dating from 1977. The nearby museum contains many archaeological objects, including parts of the original Roman monument. Of the original 54 metopes, 48 are in the museum and 1 is in Istanbul.

As one historian said, this place has been refurbished some 7-10 years ago with EU funds. It’s located one hour away from Constanta (I doubt there is any easy public transportation to it), so off the beaten paths. Entry fee was 10 RON per adult, and much less for kids above 7. Free entry for various other people (seniors, disabilities, smaller kids). One could visit not only the monument, but also a tomb and an amphitheater. There is an info board with lots of details on the place, in Romanian, English, French and German. The guardian (who also sold us the tickets) said he can provide more info, if needed (not sure if also in English or other languages). A few history books and leaflets available for sale, but no magnets (only from time to time, then quickly sold) or other souvenirs. Large parking and good access road from the main road. Interestingly, there is a small boarding house just near the access road, if one would like to spend more time for this place and for the surrounding history sites. We just hit the road for another 20 km to reach the cave of St Andrew, another landmark of ancient Romanian history. Bottom line, it’s a hidden gem. I’m glad I could finally visit it.

Even if it's in the middle of nowhere, at 60 km from Constanta, you can see and feel a piece of Romanian people history from the period when Traian, Roman Emperor conquered the land of Dacians. It's actually a complex of very interesting and different constructions.
