The first part of the one-day tour from Bucharest to Constanta will find us on the highway to Constanta, crossing the bridge over the Danube (the first bridge was built in 1895 by the Romanian engineer Anghel Saligny during King Carol I). Also, we will pass the Nuclear Power Plant made by a Canadian Company starting with the beginning of 1978. After 3 hours of driving, we will reach Constanta where we head to the Historical Center.
Constanta is the oldest town attested on the Romanian territory. The first documentary attestation of this city dates back to 657 BC when the area was founded by a Greek colony called Tomis. The Greek settlements have been conquered by the Romans in 71 BC and renamed Constantiana, after the sister of the Roman Emperor Constantin the Great. During the 13th Century, the Italian merchants from Genova developed the town. Constanta has declined during the Ottoman rule period. After the Romanian war of Independence 1877-1878, Constanta rises back and has been developed until the present as the largest harbor in Romania.
