The famous expression unity in diversity founds its place here better that anywhere.
This is the reasons why Dobrogea offers unprecedented culinary experiences. The most important dish is fish coocked in various ways according to the traditions or customs and culture. For example the fish soup has different tastes.
The city was afterwards included in the Province of Moesia, and, from the time of Diocletian, in Scythia Minor, of which it was the metropolis. After the split of the Roman Empire, Tomis fell under the rule of Byzantine Empire. During Mauritius's Balkan campaigns, Tomis was besieged by the Avars in the winter of 597/598. Tomis was later renamed to Constantiana in honour of Constantia, the half-sister of Constantine the Great (274-337). The earliest known usage of this name was "Κωνστάντια" ("Constantia") in 950. The city lay at the seaward end of the Great Wall of Trajan, and has evidently been surrounded by fortifications of its own.
Vestiges of the old civilizations is found today almost everywhere in the city. In Constanţa one can see today the ruins of the Roman wall which closed the North-western part of the fortress and the ruins of the gates from West and North, on which was the exit from the fortress. The Roman edifice, the most precious architectural complex discovered, is from 3-4 centuries; the floor of this edifice with thick and high walls is formed by colored mosaic pieces, the drawing representing geometrical and floral figures. Considering the artistical conceptions and its dimensions, the mosaic from Constanta is one of the first of the kind in the world. It seams that the building served for trade, being also a place for delivery and deposit (at the middle and underground levels were storehouses for goods and a little market place). Many vestiges of the Tomis fortress are found in the city museum, among them being some special pieces like: the marble statue of the Godess Fortuna, the city protectress, with Pontos, the Black Sea (Pontus Euxinus) God.
The Black Sea Resorts
Mamaia is the biggest and most beautiful summer resort on the Romanian Black Sea shore. Named "The Pearl of the Romanian Riviera", it is the oldest Romanian seaside resort (1906). It is situated north-east of Constanta. Mamaia has almost no full time residents, being populated mostly during summer. It is 8 km (5 miles) in length and only 300 m in width, being a strip of land between the Black Sea and Lake Siutghiol. It is especially suited for families with children.
