Constanța is one of the oldest cities certified on the territory of Romania. The first documentary certification dates back to the year 657 b. Chr. when, on the place of the current peninsula (and even under today’s waters, in front of the Casino) there was formed a Greek colony called Tomis. The locality was conquered by the Romans in 71 b. Chr. and renamed Constantiana after the sister of the emperor Constantin the Great. During the XIIIth century The great sea (as it was named back then the Black Sea) was dominated by the Italian merchant men from Genoa who helped at building up the city. Further on, Constanța suffered a decline under the Ottoman command, becoming a simple village lived by Greek fishermen and by Tatar horse and sheep breeders. The locality became again a city after the construction of the railway Cernavodă – Constanța and of the harbor, in 1865, for the export of the Romanian grains. After the Independence War (1877 – 1878), when Dobrogea became part of the Kingdom of Romania, Constanța, the principal port of the state, continuously grew, holding this role even in the present.

The Constanța harbor covers a surface of 39, 26 km2, has a length of almost 30 km, it is the biggest harbor from the Black Sea and it is situated on the 4th place in Europe.
