Romance in Mamaia

International resort is the largest one on the Black Sea.
Mamaia is the European version of Palm Beach, having 8 km long and 100-250 m wide beaches of extremely fine sand on the Black Sea shore.
According to legend, the gods created Mamaia to reunite a princess, kidnapped during the time of the Ottoman Empire, with her daughter who was trapped on the shore crying “Mamaia!” It is the oldest of the Black Sea resorts; first developed in 1906, on a narrow spit of land between Siutghiol Lake and the Black Sea, 5km north of Constanta. The resort blossomed after 1919, with the establishment of a casino and opulent villas, and it became a summer residence of King Ferdinand. Mamaia is particularly suitable for families on account of it’s safe gently sloping, beaches of fine, soft sand fringed by wild pear trees Hotels and villas line the shore together with restaurants offering fish specialities, traditional and international cuisine. For entertainment Mamaia boasts a variety of discotheques and bars, leisure parks,including a new water park, and a summer theatre.
